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.
