1979 Rolex Sea Dweller 'Great White' MK1 'New Old Stock' Ref. 1665
The elusive New Old Stock - Yes, it exists but we usually get tired hunting them as they just won't come up. Once in a blue moon then, usually when we are not looking for one, it just appears and we start dancing and feel like we won the lottery. This is how we felt when we got this incredible Rolex Sea Dweller 1665 in our hands. We had to look twice but yes, it is in that crazy New Old Stock condition. The case is farm fresh and retains the original factory finishing. The lugs retain the beautifully bevelled and are untouched. The bracelet of course is in the same condition, unworn and fully linked. The original MK1 'Great White' dial is flawless,probably the best possible one can find. The lumes have aged to a vivid yellow color and are matching the hands. We are super thrilled to be able to offer this watch and its not only because of the condition, its because of how the lumes on the dial have aged and how superb it overall looks. It is probably the best one we have ever seen.
