Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 ‘Double Red MK IV Dial’


“When Comex divers go down to 2000 feet, only one watch is good enough to dive with them.” This was the title of a Rolex ad back in the ’60s, when the Sea-Dweller got introduced out of a collaboration with Comex, an international deep-sea diving organization. So, if you’re into diving, we strongly suggest you to pick up the ‘Double Red’ we already have on offer. However, if you want to go down that deep, it is recommended to have a partner with you instead of going on your own. Therefore, Amsterdam Vintage Watches has decided to offer you a second Double Red Sea-Dweller. Now, you and your diving partner can both plunge into water in style. 

The Double Red Sea-Dweller, which is called this way because of the two lines of red text – SEA-DWELLER, SUBMARINER 2000 – was produced from 1967 to 1978. Today, we’re offering you an example that dates back to 1972. The dial displays the word Submariner, which tells that the Sea-Dweller evolved out of the Submariner. Both watches have aesthetic similarities. However, there are also major distinctions between them; most importantly, instead of 660 ft. = 200 m., the Sea-dweller was a great companion to reach depths of 2000 ft. = 610 m. under water. Moreover, the helium escape valve could relieve helium particles in order to release pressure. Otherwise, the plexiglass would pop off the watch. This example has an MK IV dial. Basically, this means that the white characters on the dial are larger, it has a closed 6 and the crown above the word ROLEX is well-defined. The watch has a beautifully-coloured tritium index and comes on its original stainless steel Oyster bracelet.
