When a submariner is not enough, it's time to make room for professionals.
That's why the Sea-Dweller was born, introduced by Rolex after the experiments made with COMEX, equipping the new model with a helium escape valve for decompression.
A set of new features allowed the watch to reach a maximum depth of more than 600 m, and the new reference officially saw the light of day in 1971.
The present specimen, from 1973, boasts the rare "double red" configuration, present only in the early years of production. Indeed, we can observe the transitional inscription "Sea-Dweller / Submariner 2000" in red paint.
This detail would later disappear, eventually being replaced by an entirely white inscription without the "submariner" designation.
It is, therefore, a pleasure to present such a fascinating watch, a piece of watchmaking history, in excellent condition.
