This watch is in excellent condition for its age, with a light and even layer of wear on the case and bracelet. The bevels on the lugs are still very sharp.

There is no guarantee for water resistance on this watch.

The Sea-Dweller is Rolex's answer to those who liked the Submariner, but required a watch that could go deeper into the sea. It was launched in 1967 and offered triple the Submariner's water resistance by using a helium escape valve.

Produced between 1967 to 1977, the 'Double Red Sea Dweller' features two lines of red text (instead of one) and is amongst the most collectible of vintage Rolex models.


Known by many simply as "the Crown", Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.

Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
