Notes

The Rolex Ref. 16660 Sea-Dweller, often nicknamed the “Triple-Six”, was the first Sea-Dweller using sapphire glass. The current example features the Mark 1 Matte Dial, which has always considered as a rare feature during transitional period. Soon after this type of dial was replaced by a new design of glossy dial and surrounded indexes. This example overall has been kept in excellent condition with slightly patinated on the luminous, accompanied by full set accessories.
