The combination of a perfect dial, honest overall condition and complete accessories makes this Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 from 1981 a rare find.

Introduced at the end of the 1960s, the Sea-Dweller 1665 was a diver's watch specially developed for professional divers. It was characterized not only by increased water resistance, but also by a pioneering function that was of immense importance for deep-sea research: the helium valve. For the first time, the newly developed helium valve, located on the left-hand side of the case, allowed the excess pressure inside the watch to escape during its long stay under water.

Vintage collectors admire the legendary Sea-Dweller not only because of its important history, but also because of the robust construction of the case, the reliable movement and, of course, the classic and attractive dial.

Here we offer you an MK3 version from 1981, which is preserved in original condition. The case has natural signs of wear, but that is exactly what makes this Sea-Dweller so authentic and honest. The watch has served and lived well for 40 years. The dial is immaculately preserved and looks wonderful on the wrist.

This Sea-Dweller comes in a full set consisting of numerous original accessories:
- Chronometer certificate, punched with the serial number, sold in February 1981 in Malmö, Sweden,
- Original invoice from 1981
- Service receipt from 2001
- 2 brochures
- Rolex leather warranty holder with a sticker showing the serial number of the watch
- Rolex calendar 1981
- Rolex Oyster anchor
- Warranty translation
- Presentation box
- Outer box.
