DIAL
Original "Mk3" black dial with tritium lume plots

Original “Mk3” black dial with tritium lume plots & Mercedes hands. The so called “Great White” Mk3 dials feature within the serial range 6.0 to 6.8 million. These dials came after the “Double Red” and were introduced in the late 1970s. The dial is marked  “Swiss-T<25” referring to the original tritium luminous used on the dial which is showing a nice patina, and matching with the original tritium luminous on the hands. The dial has not been touched and remains in excellent original condition.

CASE
Steel case with helium escape valve & 60 minute rotating bezel

Sea-Dweller reference 1665 in stainless steel. The 6.0 million serial number in-between the lugs corresponds with the original guarantee paperwork dating the watch to 1980. This reference features a domed plexiglass crystal & helium escape value. The crown is an original Rolex Triplock screw down crown. The case is sharp and has been professionally polished by Rolex during service. The case retains the original service stickers and the watch has not been worn since the last service in 2019. The rotating bezel with 60 minute insert appears to be a Rolex service replacement.
