|The Sea-Dweller stretched the limits of Rolex diving watches when it was introduced in 1978. At the time, its innovative design included a helium escape valve, allowing the Sea-Dweller to venture deeper than ever before. Thanks to the addition of a helium escape valve, the Sea-Dweller could return from deep saturation dives without damaging the movement within. The 6-digit reference that is offered here today includes the helium escape valve in its design along with a Triplock screw-down crown, allowing it to venture as far as 4,000 feet. It shares a classic design with other Rolex diving watches with the addition of a 60-minute unidirectional Cerachrom bezel and coordinating black maxi dial. The 40mm Oyster case, flat link Oyster bracelet, and Oysterlock safety clasp with Glidelock extension system are constructed out of resilient 904L stainless steel for a virtually indestructible finish. Although the Sea-Dweller was designed for professional diving, its robust and classic sports watch design is enjoyed by Rolex enthusiasts all over the world.|

The 116600 is the sleeper hit for Rolex. For me it is the perfect example of a modern, capable, steel Rolex. If you're only going to own one sports Rolex this is it.
