Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 'Great White Mk1'

  • Free worldwide delivery

The Double-Red Seadweller is one of the most sought after vintage Rolex sports models, but the ‘Great White’ is a worthy alternative.

The ‘Great White’ moniker refers to the four lines of white-colored text on a ref. 1665 Sea-Dweller. The ‘Great White’ is the successor of the Double-Red Seadweller. Oddly, prices for ‘Great Whites’ are significantly lower than Double-Reds, even though they were produced for just 5 years compared to the 10-year production run of the Double-Red (all Marks combined).

This specimen dates back to 1978 and comes with a rare MK I dial. These early dial variants are characterized, among others, by the non-serif printing of the word ‘ft.’ The dial is in perfect condition and features attractive light-creamy tritium lume plots with matching tritium hands. Meanwhile, the original bezel insert is still mounted and shows beautiful aging but remains perfect. The 40 mm stainless steel case is in excellent condition, with the chamfers still visible on the thick lugs.
