It is so nice to have found a nice chocolaty color dial Rolex Double Red Seadweller. This watch is a reference 1665 circa 1968. The original Mark II dial is just gorgeous. The background color of the dial has turned a light hue of brown and the original lume on the dial has maintained its original white color. The lume on the original hands of the watch match the color of the dial lume as well. The case on this piece is very strong and the lugs still have their facets intact. This beauty come on a folded oyster link bracelet with flip lock clasp dated to 1972. This watch has a fantastic vintage look!

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.
