Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 ‘Double Red MK4 Dial’


When Comex divers go down to 2000 feet, only one watch is good enough to dive with them.

This Rolex was introduced in the ‘60s out of a collaboration with Comex, an international deep sea diving organization. We’re talking about the Rolex Sea-dweller. Specifically, we’re offering you a “Double Red”.  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. This is a very late specimen as it dates back to the last year of production.

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 meters, the Sea-dweller was a great companion to reach depths of 2000 ft./610 meters under water. Moreover, the helium escape valve could let go helium particles in order to release pressure. Otherwise, the plexiglass would pop off the watch. It

This example has an MK4 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. However, the hands have been replaced by other, period-correct tritium hands. It comes on a solid Oyster bracelet.
