Rolex Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665 - 'Double Red Tropical Thin Case'
However, this isn't your run of the mill ‘1665’...
This piece features two lines of text on the dial that read:“Sea-Dweller+Submariner 2000” in red, rather than the usual white. It has since become known to collectors as the "Double Red Sea-Dweller" or DSRD.
It dates to circa 1972 and features an excellent, thick 'thin' case with even lugs and no signs of polishing. The black bezel insert has taken on a faint navy fade. But the real treat with this piece is that the 'MK2' dial has changed to a gorgeous brown 'tropical' color. It shows only light wear with even patina across the Tritium plots with a matching handset. It comes fitted to a correct folded-link Oyster bracelet with a dive clasp.
A truly well-rounded package!
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
