Rolex Sea Dweller 16600

One of our absolute favourites here at Oakleigh Watches is the Rolex Sea Dweller 16600.

There’s a temptation to think of the Sea Dweller as perhaps a bit OTT until you realise that it’s really not that big, or that fat, it just has a bit more presence and gravitas than a Submariner – I think it’s perfectly proportioned and if I was pushed I would say that it’s the perfect sports Rolex.  The balance of the watch and the feeling on the wrist is absolutely superb.

This 1999 Rolex 16600 Sea Dweller is an excellent example of a rare Swiss only dialled watch, albeit without the package of papers and accessories – not everyone’s cup of tea I know but bear in mind that the watch itself is excellent and rare and you’re probably saving £1,500 by not having the Full Set.

The dial and hands on this watch are perfect and the case is also really good without marks, as is the comfortable bracelet – The bezel is particularly sharp and the best news is that it’s all original, right down to the bezel insert.

This watch is a great investment opportunity, especially as Sea Dwellers are undervalued at the moment anyway because it a great example of a classic Swiss only Sea Dweller – these watches are currently priced very similarly to the 16610 Submariner and they can’t stay that way for long – NOBODY expects that the 16610 will be going down so…

Just serviced and supplied with a 12 month warranty.
