Rolex Double Red Sea-dweller ref 1665 from the 1970’s

rolex 1665 double Red Sea dweller

Rolex Double Red 1665 in perfect condition

When collectors talk about the ‘Double Red’ Rolex they refer to the 1665 sea dweller produced between 1967 and 1978. The Sea Dweller ref 1665 models after this year did not feature the ‘double red’ signature on the dial but still had a plexiglass crystal and matte dial.

The Rolex sea dweller examples with double red writing are very sought after by collectors especially in good condition like this example from the mid 70’s. This 1665 double red remains in perfect original condition, the dial is mint and the tritium developed a beautiful creamy yellow patinarolex double red 1665
