Another classic discontinued 40mm Rolex 16600 Sea Dweller we sold, also a complete set. This M serial 16600 features the titanium helium escape valve on the left side of the case, and an aluminum bezel insert (currently a ceramic bezel insert on the newer Rolex 116660 Deep Sea and 116600 Sea Dweller 4K). The 3135 movement (same as the Submariner 16610 movement) sits enclosed inside the case, and does not feature the blue parachrom hairspring. The 16600 Sea Dweller was discontinued midway into the V serial and never received the engraved rehault feature during its run. Unlike the Submariner date 16610 and no date 14060M, the Sea Dweller and GMT Master II 16710 finished their runs with clean rehaults.
The sapphire crystal features no cyclops, both to distinguish it from the Submariner and to allow the diving depth of 4000 feet. While the 16600 Sea Dweller is thicker than the 16610 Submariner, its dial is actually smaller than the 16610 Sub. Comes on a reference 93160A solid end link SEL bracelet with polished link sides as opposed to brushed link sides on the Submariner reference 93250 bracelet.
SOLD and delivered to our buyer in England with original Rolex boxes, red chronometer tag, manuals, and warranty card.
