The Sea-Dweller was released as an upgrade to the Rolex Submariner. Originally designed for the Comex deep-sea diving company, the ref. 1665 features a thicker crystal which the Submariner's standard Cyclops is absent, as well as a thicker case. These features as well as the later addition of Rolex's revolutionary helium escape valve, give the Sea-Dweller a much deeper depth rating than previous thought possible. The first Sea-Dweller's produced have become known as "Double Red Sea-Dwellers." These models are highly collectible and still feature the name Submariner on the dial. This particular watch has a replacement "Great White" dial. The dial is nicknamed as such due to the all white writing.
