About The Watch:
The Rolex DeepSea SeaDweller Ref 126660 is an impressive timepiece in every way. From its size, cutting-edge Calibre 3235 movement, updated lugs, and bracelet, the DeepSea Dweller is a statement piece and a technical marvel from Rolex.
The original Rolex Sea-Dweller was designed in 1967, with saturation divers in mind. Due to the use of helium in the gas mixture during saturation dives, helium particles would accumulate in the cases of diving watches, during extended periods at depth, which would then escape through the weakest parts of a watch during decompression. Many times, it would escape by popping the plexiglass crystal off of the watch. Rolex developed the helium escape valve, built into the side of the watch case, to combat this issue, and therefore allow for a safe release of the gas, and continued reliability and durability of the watch. The DeepSea SeaDweller, released in 2008, takes Rolex dive watches to the next level. With a water resistance rating to the depth of 12,800 feet, the DeepSea SeaDweller is a technical masterpiece.
The Rolex DeepSea SeaDweller Ref 126660 has a 44mm Oystersteel case, with a domed 5.5mm-thick scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The bezel is unidirectional rotating, with a 60-minute graduated, scratch-resistant Cerachrom insert in ceramic. Numerals and graduations on the bezel are coated in platinum. The Ref 126660 is powered by the Calibre 3235 movement, with a power reserve of 70 hours, and a water resistance rating of 12,800 feet. The Ref 126660 has the updated Oyster Bracelet with the folding Oysterlock Safety Clasp, Gridlock Extension System, and the Fliplock extension link.
This Rolex DeepSea SeaDweller was purchased from a Rolex AD new, in January 2021. It comes with double boxes, warranty booklet, instruction manual, warranty card, cardholder, and hangs tags. The watch is in excellent condition and still has some of the stickers present on the case and bracelet.
