Rolex - Sea-Dweller Rare Spider Dial - 16660 - Unisex - 1980-1989
Automatic - Steel - Box

Original Rolex Sea Dweller Oyster Perpetual Date Spider Dial Stainless Steel Men's Watch ref. 16660, made in 1984. The watch is in a fully working
order and is in good condition, with surface scratches that are to be expected on any watch of this age.

At the heart of this watch is a legendary automatic high grade movement calibre 3035 on 27 jewels, this movement runs great and all functions works
as expected.

Essentially, Rolex hadn’t perfected the lacquer finish that is applied to the black surface of the dial, and with time, some examples began to
experience cracking that resembled a spider web, or crazing, as it’s referred to by some collectors.

This model features the very rare original black "Spider" dial and very rare mark "Sea Dweller" without hyphen, with nice cream tritium hour marks,
signed "Rolex", " Oyster Perpetual Date ", "Sea Dweller", "4000ft=1220m", Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified", "Swiss-T folding clasp


The case made from stainless steel, has 60-minute graduated dark color unidirectional bezel. The case measuring approximately around 40 mm (1,57
inch) across excluding the crown and 48mm (1,88 inch) from lug to lug is in good condition, with minor surface scratches that are to be expected on
any watch of this age.

The winding crown is completely original and correctly signed with the famous “Rolex” logo.

The back lid signed "Rolex Oyster", "Original Gas Escape Valve".

The watch is presented on original "Rolex" Oyster stainless steel bracelet around 21,5 cm (8,46 inch) including watch case, with original "Rolex" folding clasp.

Other specifications: With original Rolex box, no papers.
