By Paul Altieri,
Around 1977, Rolex had ended the production of the Double Red Sea Dweller. During the same time, a new variation of the model 1665 was launched, no longer featuring the red lettering on the dial. Thanks to its purity on the dial, lacking any bright colors, collectors refer to this model as the “Great White”.
Over the next four years, different "Great White" dial variants were produced by Rolex and collectors today divide them into five variations ranging from Mark 0 to Mark 4, the rarest by far being the Mark 0.
The present example is overall lovely condition, and stands out by its equally and beautifully aged luminous material on the hour markers, hands, and little pearl on the bezel. What may appear across the room to be a standard Rolex diver's watch, is in fact when viewed up-close as one of the rarest treasures in the field of collectible vintage Sea-Dwellers.
