Preowned Rolex Sea-Dweller Comex Black Dial 1665
The COMEX Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665. This fine example 1665 is from 1980 and is completely original with the correct dial which has a lovely natural patina. The lumes are all intact and the hands matching in colour. We believe this to be a fine example if this rare reference and a great investment.
The COMEX Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665
The first COMEX labeled Sea-Dweller is the ref. 1665.
Note the lack of the word “DATE” after ‘OYSTER PERPETUAL” despite the fact that the Sea-Dweller is indeed a date model. Only 300 ref. 1665 COMEX were produced from the late 1970s to the early 1980s carrying the COMEX issues numbers 2000-2300.
Like Sea-Dweller watches that were sold to the public, there are different dial variations found on the COMEX ref. 1665. The first dial variation is a “Rail” dial, where the “C” in “CHRONOMETER” lines up with the “C” in “CERTIFIED.” Even more interesting, however, is the depth rating on the original dials of the COMEX Sea-Dweller ref. 1665, which say 2000ft = 600m.
The other dial variation of the COMEX Sea-Dweller ref. 1665 were actually service dials and they did not have the “Rail” alignment of the letter “Cs” and the 600m was replaced by 610m.
