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