A Superb Pre Owned Rolex Sea-Dweller Model Ref: 16600 - Issued 2002, In Fantastic Shape with Stylish Black and Steel Colourway. 

The ultimate dive watch - Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600, was built for the depths. Waterproof to over 4000 ft (1.22km), its construction is sturdy and as solid as they come, and is highly resemblant of the Submariner.

Perfected in the 1960s, the Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600 saw minimal change to its design until 2008 when a larger 'Maxi' case, ceramic bezel, Rolex engraved Rehaut and magnifying cyclops above the date were introduced.

This 2002 model enjoys the slimmer construction and cleaner dial with no date magnifier, it's subjective, but we much prefer this version.

The hands and hour plots are filled with Rolex Superluminova which glows white in low light allowing superb visibility underwater. The helium escape valve allows for perfect internal pressure distribution as the watch surfaces from the depths, increasing the thickness of the watch to around 14.8mm, slightly prouder than a Rolex Submariner, but still a beautiful everyday wearer. Powered by a COSC Superlative Chronometer-certified Calibre 3135, the watch keeps exceptional time. A sought after watch at a competitive price, we don't expect this to be around for long. 

What’s On Offer 

This 2002 Rolex Sea Dweller has been well taken care of and is in excellent condition with minimal signs of wear visible to the naked eye - a superb pre owned watch. The Black colourway, meaty dimensions and steel case paired with the original Rolex Oyster bracelet combine to make a very handsome watch with all the bells and whistles one would expect from Rolex. The dial is in perfect order with the synonymous Mercedes hands, luminous hour plots and subtle date aperture encapsulated under sapphire crystal. 

The watch comes with an original Rolex box but the original paperwork is not available! 

Recently timed and checked over by our watchmaker and having been lightly polished the watch looks great, and comes with a 12 month warranty.
