Rolex has always had water as a favorite element for new and the present lot is a very nice Sea-Dweller reference 16 660, the Triple 6 launched in 1978, a transitional Rolex that is a perfect example of the evolution of the much appreciated Sea-Dweller collection. The present lot especially stands out thanks to its immaculate overall condition: the stainless steel case is perfect such as the graduated bezel and the glossy dials with white-gold luminous markers. This watch is a classic, discontinued Rolex model that is great for everyday wear. It comes with the Original Rolex Warranty confirming the sale on March 1989, its original box, booklets, calendar of that time, tags and an additional stainless steel bracelet. To find a discontinued sports Rolex in this condition is getting harder every day and this is a very rare chance to purchase one.
