Rolex Sea-Dweller “Swiss-only” Dial Automatic Stainless Steel Men’s Watch 16600

Rolex Sea-Dweller “Swiss-only” Dial Automatic Stainless Steel Men’s Watch 16600

Swiss watch producer Rolex deservedly holds icon status in the world of luxury watches. Their level of accuracy is legendary, and every timepiece they create possesses an unwavering elegance that surpasses popular fashion.

This Sea-Dweller produced in 1999 from Rolex is a classic model that is much heralded and highly sought after since it was manufactured in the limited production run. Production of this stellar model began in 1988 and had a long, celebrated run from 1989 to 2009. Unique to this particular model in this listing is the small text at 6 that reads simply “Swiss” as opposed to the more common “Swiss Made.”

As one of first Rolex pieces to utilize 904L steel, which later became known as Oystersteel, it sports a solid screw-down case back, a screw-down winding crown, and a thick scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Note that there is no cyclops magnifier for the date function at 3.

The unidirectionally rotating bezel with an aluminum insert displays a dive scale, which is essential, along with a helium escape valve and an incredible 1220 m / 122 atm water resistance (that’s 4,000 feet!).

The stainless steel case measures 40 mm in diameter, 14.5 mm in height, and rests upon a stainless steel Oyster bracelet with a stainless steel Oyster folding deployant clasp.

At the heart of this Sea-Dweller we find Rolex’s 3135 caliber, a much celebrated COSC-certified chronometer movement that beats at 28,800 vph, possesses 31 jewels, and delivers a 48-hour power reserve.

Luminescent hands and markers grace the minimalist black-colored dial that features a minute track.

From its historic capabilities to its iconic dependability and high level of craftsmanship, we are confident that this Rolex Sea-Dweller will make an excellent addition to your collection.

Standout feature(s): Historic, celebrated model of distinction; officially certified chronometer movement; 48-hour power reserve; fabulous 1220 m / 122 atm water resistance; helium escape valve.
