Being one of the first watches from Rolex to use 904L steel in its construction, today known as Oystersteel, the 16600 in its 40mm by 14.5mm Oyster case features a wonderful weightiness and signature, action-ready sturdiness which has defined the Sea-Dweller collection from its 1967 origins. A unidirectional, black aluminum-insert bezel adds to the watch's professional grade credentials, as does a subtle helium escape valve opposite the screw-down crown.
On the dial, a highly-legible dial produced in Rolex's distinct diver configuration is showcased, complete with a 3 o'clock date window, lume-filled hour markers and hands, and a deep black dial contrasting to it all. Worth noting is the 16600, like most Sea-Dwellers, does not feature a cyclops magnifier over the date, differentiating it from the rest of the Rolex's catalogue collection as a distinct signature for the collection.
One of our finest examples to date of the Sea-Dweller, in all round spectacular condition.
Supplied as a complete set with original box, booklets, and warranty papers dated November 1990.
