Description

Rolex 16660 Sea Dweller ‘Triple Six’

Beautiful and rare vintage sea dweller. This is the so called ‘triple six’ model because of it’s reference 16660. The early versions of this Sea dweller ref 16660 are fitted with a matte dial instead of the glossy dials which where standard from 1985 and further.

The Rolex sea dweller Triple six with matte dial could be considered as one of the last Rolex models with a matte dial. The only two Rolex models with a matte dial combined with a sapphire crystal are the submariner date 16800 and sea dweller 16660. For both references it’s a fact that only the early badges are having the sought after matte dial without the white gold surroundings around the tritium material. This sea dweller is the MK2 version.

condition

The condition of this sea dweller 16660 is very good. The dial could be considered as mint / flawless. The tritium on the dial and hands have a nice vanilla color patina, the case remains in good condition too. It has been gently polished in the past, the case still has it’s fat lugs and body. The bracelet shows minimal stretch and comes with all extra links. The sapphire crystal shows little signs of wearing, on request we can deliver the watch with a new sapphire crystal.

With vintage Rolex the condition of the dial and hands is getting more and more important for collectors, which makes sense as undamaged dials are getting scarce. This Rolex sea dweller has the best looking dial we have ever seen, it shows no damages or flaws at all. The tritium material on dial and hands remains in very good condition too and has never been restored.
