ROLEX SEA DWELLER 16660 TRIPLE SIX: Our 5 Minute Review | Swiss Watch Trader

OUR 5 MINUTE REVIEW OF THE ROLEX SEA DWELLER 16660 TRIPLE SIX

Sit back and read our 5 minute review of the Rolex Sea Dweller 16660 "Triple Six". The 40mm Rolex Sea Dweller 16660 was released in 1978 and replaced the Sea Dweller 1665. The Rolex Sea Dweller 16660 is considered a transitional model. The depth rating increased to 1220m or 4000 ft thanks to the addition of a sapphire crystal and a larger and more reliable helium escape valve.

The Rolex Sea Dweller 16660 features a 40mm stainless steel case with helium escape valve, sapphire crystal, a uni-directional divers bezel in black aluminium and is powered by the Rolex calibre 3035 automatic movement with date. Early examples of the Sea Dweller 16660 were fitted with matte black dials with printed tritium hour markers.
