Description

Introduced in 1988, the Sea-Dweller 16600 is the heavy-duty brother of the Submariner 16610 of the same era. Compared to the Submariner, its case -now fitted with a helium escape valve- is slightly thicker. The glass does not feature the cyclops. The 16600 was replaced by the Deepsea 116660 in 2008.

The pictured watch was made for the COMEX diving corp. Its 'Luminova' (Swiss) dial is a service replacement.

Movement

Rolex caliber 3135 This model is equipped with calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3135 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. It is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring, offering greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.
