Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665

Reference 1665 is the inaugural Sea-Dweller, coming to market in 1967 and continuing production until circa 1983. During that time, three variations of the dial were released, the "Double Red" with two lines of red text, the "Single Red" with only one line of red text, and the "Great White" with no red text at all. The Great White Sea-Dweller itself boasts numerous dial variations, including the "Rail Dial" ref. 1665 you see here today. When it comes to collectible luxury watches, the Great White Rolex 1665 is one of the most desirable. We have a very handsome example in stock right now and ready to ship. You'll soon become the envy of everyone you meet with this incredible dive watch on your wrist.
