Rolex Sea-Dweller 16660 ‘Matte Triple Six’

We’re happy to bring you the Rolex Sea-Dweller 16660, nicknamed the ‘Triple Six’. Despite the fact that this diver has nothing to do with the devil, it is still one of the most sought-after Sea-Dweller references over the years. 

With the ‘Triple Six’, Rolex doubled the watch’s depth rating to 4000ft compared to its predecessor carrying reference 1665 thanks to its larger Helium escape valve. Further on, Rolex created a non-directional bezel (for the diver’s safety) and switched to a sapphire crystal, causing this Sea-Dweller to be considered as a transitional model.

The watch is made out of stainless steel, has a case size of 40 mm and runs on the caliber 3035. This caliber was an upgrade of the 1575 caliber. It runs on a higher frequency of 28,800 beats per hour and includes a quick-set function for the date.

The watch is in overall good condition and features a ‘MK I’ tritium matte dial. The Oyster bracelet is period and reference correct but slightly newer.
