Rolex Oyster Professional Sea-Dweller 43mm in Stainless Steel
The Story Behind This Sea-Dweller
This is a BRAND NEW Rolex Oyster Professional Sea-Dweller in stainless steel. This piece was purchased brand new by our client at a Rolex authorized retailer in June of 2019. It was sized, worn out of the store, and appears to have rarely (if ever) been worn since. This watch includes the original box, and original Rolex warranty card (confirming its sale date of 06/2019).
Why We Love This Sea-Dweller
The 126600 Sea-Dweller marks a huge departure for Rolex. Released in 2017, it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Sea-Dweller. It gained 3mm in size, a new movement (3235), ceramic bezel, Chromalight lume, and red Sea-Dweller text on the dial (designed to pay hommage to the original Sea-Dweller dial). Just like the original, this piece is equipped with an automatic helium escape valve. Co developed by French commercial diving company COMEX, this is vitally important to let out gasses that may have seeped in to the watch during long term saturation diving without destroying the watch itself. The many changes of the 126600 also allowed for some differentiation in the marketplace between its shallower diving cousin: the Submariner. The larger size makes this more in line with its contemporaries, and allows people who love bigger watches to finally enjoy a Rolex dive watch.
