The Triple Six Sea-Dweller Rolex 16660 introduced several upgrades to the brand's line of deep saturation dive watches, including an increased depth rating of up to 4,000 feet via a Helium Escape Valve at 9 o'clock, the addition of a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a unidirectional bezel, and a then-new calibre 3035 perpetual movement with a higher frequency of 28,800 bph and a Quickset function. As with many sports models, the case is worn on a matching stainless steel Oyster bracelet secured by a folding Oysterlock clasp. The Sea-Dweller 16660 remained on the market for ten years before being replaced by the ref. 16600 in the late 1980s. The particular ref. 16660 that is presented here today shows some signs of wear on the bezel as well as some slight aging on the dial, giving it immense character.
