Rolex
Sea-Dweller

Ref.: 1665

Although today the first association with the name Rolex is one of luxury and fashion, in the past, the crowned case was first and foremost synonymous with reliability and quality. Anyone working in an extreme environment - underwater, in a CERN laboratory, on a motor racing track - chose a Rolex timepiece if they needed one. From the 1950s, for example, divers had the Submariner at their disposal. However, with the passage of time and the advancement of diving techniques, the 200 metres of water resistance offered by references 5512 and 5513 were no longer sufficient.

Thus, the 'Submariner 2000', or 'Sea Dweller', was born, which is resistant up to 2000 feet, or 660 metres. In addition to the increased resistance to pressure, the new model incorporated a vent valve in the case of helium, a gas that would otherwise have risked "bursting" the plexiglass from the inside when ascending from the dive. Soon, the technology introduced by Rolex with the Sea Dweller was imitated by other brands.

The watch presented here, dated by the warranty to 1985, is preserved in totally original condition and is virtually untouched. It has a sought-after "Rail" dial, with the Superlative Chronometer and Officially Certified spacing aligned. It is accompanied by its original papers.
