VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Rolex Sea-Dweller ref # 16600 Tritium Indexes Dial circa 1991

SOLD

Early example sapphire crystal Rolex Sea-Dweller ref# 16600. X serial # circa 1991 with lightly patina’d tritium indexes and hands. Featuring 40mm diameter stainless steel case with unidirectional elapsed time bezel and sapphire crystal. Featuring an original glossy black dial with tritium indexes, matching hands, and original elapsed time bezel insert. The tritium on this particular piece has turned just a slight off white that plays off the gloss black dial extremely well. Dial signed SWISS-T<25. Powered by self winding calibre 3135 with sweep seconds and quick set date. With correct ref 93160 solid end link (SEL) Rolex stainless steel Oyster bracelet with flip lock clasp.

Note: this watch has been fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, but the case and bracelet left unpolished as found. A very nice, beefy case, with light scratches and minor dings from use. Bracelet shows some stretch. Guaranteed genuine, in excellent operating condition, and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Note, as the plastic crystal sports models have so escalated in price, many collectors are looking toward the early sapphire crystal models with original tritium indexe dials and hands, (designated by T<25 at bottom of dial) as value buys.

Your watch purchase will arrive in our fine glazed leather WBAW? watch pouch. Great for travel or storage. A $45 value!

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
