- Technical datas
The Rolex Sea-Dweller differs from the Submariner by the thickness of the case and a helium valve that evacuates the gas on ascent, in order to prevent the watch from imploding. One of the differences is the water-resistance which displays 1220 m (4000 ft) on the reference 16600 which is manufactured from 1990 to 2009. Then, it has been replaced by the Deep Sea.
The date is displayed in a window at 3, but with a sapphire glass without magnifying lens which is different from the Submariner, a pleasant detail which makes the difference.
It is a stainless steel round case of 40 mm in diameter with a 60-minute epoxy turning bezel for measuring dive times or decompression stops. The black dial with luminescent round indexes with Mercedes hands and a central second hand ensure perfect reading in diving conditions. Self-winding mechanical movement, chronometer certified, therefore better finished and more precise.
The model presented here is from 2006, it is the Z series. With its original box and Rolex service papers from 2010 and 2018.
A reference watch for divers, the 16600T will remain an unequalled tool for experienced explorers.
