Rolex Sea-Dweller 16660 Stunning Patina

Triple six - nice brown lume - legendary diver

The brown patina of this Rolex Sea-Dweler 16660 is impressive. The warm look of this diver legend is absolutely unique.

In 1967, Rolex proudly presented the Sea-Dweller. This professional diver's watch revolutionized the watch market due to its technology. The water density of the Sea-Dweller was higher than any watch previously produced. In addition, the Sea-Dweller was the first diver's watch that had a helium valve. Thus, the overpressure created in the watch during diving escaped. Without the helium valve, there is a great danger that the watch glass will burst due to the enormous overpressure.

The present piece dates back to 1982 and has the reference 16660, which is also called "Triple Six". In addition to the excellent overall condition, this watch scores with its warm look. This is ensured by the patina-rich lume, which has naturally aged and shows a wonderful creamy color.

The matte black dial surface is absolutely flawless. The stainless steel case has a thick profile and sharp edges. The black bezel is also impeccably preserved and has an intact pearl at 12 o'clock. The bezel of the Sea-Dweller is only rotatable counterclockwise. This safety measure prevents accidentally adjusting the bezel in a clockwise direction, which would delay the time of coming up from the water and thus would be life-threatening for the diver.

The Sea-Dweller is driven by the Rolex automatic caliber 3035, which was checked by our watchmaker and provides a very accurate time keeping.

An Oyster stainless steel bracelet in very nice condition accompanies the watch. The bracelet reference is 93160. The number of the end pieces is 592. The Rolex folding clasp has the code G. All numbers are a perfect match for this Sea Dweller reference and the year of manufacture.

This Rolex Sea-Dweller 16660 is the legend of diving and a very attractive collector's piece.
