Watch details

Noted for its creamy patina and strong color on the original pearl, this matte dial Seadweller represents the first version of this model with a sapphire crystal. The Seadweller offers the iconic look of a Submariner, but wears a bit more substantially on the wrist. This piece boasts a strong case and all-around excellent original vintage condition. We are not selling this watch as unpolished and it is not accompanied by any accessories. Stock 44418


Joshua Bonifas


1967 saw the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller, waterproof to a depth of 610 metres. To meet the needs of professional deep-sea divers, the case was equipped with a helium escape valve so that, during long decompression phases in hyperbaric chambers, the helium from the gas mixtures used could be released without risking damage to the watch.
