In 1977 around the 5.2 million serial number, production of Rolex's Double Red Sea Dweller ceased. To replace it, a new generation of reference 1665 was started, no longer featuring the red lettering on the dial and mated with differently inscribed case backs. Thanks to its dial lacking any colors, collectors now refer to this model as the “The Great White”.
This timepiece is a 5.3 million serial, dating it to 1978. The case is beautiful shape with nice strong lugs while the original dial has been replaced with a newer service dial with bright, clean tritium hour markers truly making this a great white! The hands were updated as well and match the dial perfectly. The new insert is crisp and clean while the newer fold over bracelet provides a nice link to its heritage and giving it a nice vintage feel.

Everything you represented . I’m very happy with this watch.
Amazing look, excellent condition and good value.
I am most pleased with my purchase from Bob's watches. The website is a perfect display of product and professionalism. I especially appreciated the discrete select feature for each timepiece. I keyed on price and level one usage. There were two in my range and one of them disappeared as I was viewing with a SOLD notification. I googled this model and got numerous hits with this watch noted as best value. I bought it. Then I went to the bank and wired the funds saving $270. Other savings also apply! The watch arrived at my door 26 hours later. I commented to Bob's about a typo on the Authenticity certificate. This a.m. I received an updated certificate. I never, until now, provide testimonials to vendors but these people are the real deal.
After the issues with my wire transfer were figured out the watch was delivered the next day and is beautiful, nearly flawless. I was a little concerned because it's listing did not yet have pictures of the actual watch posted when I made the decision to purchase but it was exactly as described, a near perfect, Grade II
Great shipping time. Ease of purchase and transaction. Watch is beautiful but needs about 1 additional link on the jubilee watch band.
THE TRANSACTION WAS VERY EASY, SHIPPED OVERNIGHT, AND THE WATCH WAS AS DESCRIBED ONLINE. VERY HAPPY AND WILL BUY FROM BOB'S AGAIN
