Up for grabs is an amazing example of the Rolex Sea-Dweller, the Reference 16660. This particular example was produced in 1984, and features a tritium gloss “white gold surrounds” dial. The 16660 Sea-Dweller retains features a sapphire crystal and larger helium valve that allowed it to descend to the deeper depth of 1220 meters/4000 feet underwater. This particular example comes complete as a full-set, including its original Rolex box, “punched” Warranty Certificate (showing that it was originally sold by the famous retailer, Bucherer), hangtag (with printed serial), green wallet with calendar card, anchor, and other accessories.
This Rolex Sea-Dweller is in excellent vintage condition. The case is unpolished and sharp, with the factory beveled edges still visible, and a thick and beefy case. The dial is beautiful, with no flaws or cracking to the lacquer, and still glossy as it left the factory. The watch retains its original tritium lume on both dial and hands, aged to a nice yellow color. The watch comes on its original Rolex 93160 Oyster bracelet with 592 endlinks, and has 12 full links with minimal stretch.
