New In! Rolex-Comex Sea Dweller 2,000ft Bracelet Watch (Full-Set Box & Docs.)


ROLEX: Stainless steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual "Second Series" Comex Sea-Dweller Chronometer bracelet watch, circa 1980. Large size stainless steel case with bi-directional rotating diving bezel with black calibrated diving insert (some scuffs), associated superdome acrylic plexi-crystal, screw down "Triplock" winding crown and helium gas escape valve, in original unpolished condition with very good case profile and sharp edges (but obviously surface scratches from use!). The mid-case is a service replacement (with 4.4m serial number) fitted by Rolex as the original was presumably damaged and no longer water-tight. Screw case back (inside) with the engraved Rolex inscription, and the original Comex issue number "220X" deeply impressed in the centre. Fitted with the Rolex-Comex matt black service dial with heavy white dot and baton luminova hour markers (good luminescence in poor light!) with outer printed minute dashes, and matching luminova Mercedes pattern hands. Signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date, COMEX, Sea-Dweller, 2,000ft=610m, Superlative Chronometer, Officially Certified, and Swiss. Nickel plated Rolex calibre 1570 self-winding 26 jewel mechanism in perfect working order. Fitted with the stainless steel solid link Rolex Oyster bracelet (ref. 93150 with 585 end-pieces) with Fliplock buckle and diver's extension link, in very good used condition. Box: complete with the original Rolex slash-card presentation case and outer cardboard box with 1665 sticker Accessories: original Rolex Submariner / Sea-Dweller and Rolex Oyster booklets (in Spanish, presumably sent to Comex Mexico?), plastic wallet (with original serial number / Comex issue number sticker), original green swing tag (with original numbers sticker), red Chronometer seal, Rolex service documentation from 1985, and past valuation certificate Documentation: complete with the original un-dated "punched numbers" guarantee certificate. This very rare Sea-Dweller 1665 is the first watch from the second batch of 2,000ft professional watches issued by Comex to a commercial saturation diver for use in the field. This watch was delivered to Comex in February 1981. The price reflects the servic case and dial: a full-set Comex 1665 in original condition would be a six-figure watch! Price: £50,000 (Stock #27950) Status: Available
