Superficially, the Rolex Sea-Dweller (Ref. 116600) is characterized by a strong design. The case with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a thickness of 12.3 millimetres is made out of polished and satin-finished stainless steel. Robust and practical functions of the Sea-Dweller (Ref. 116600) include a black ceramic unidirectional rotatable bezel, and an ultra-strong, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Framed in white gold, the luminous indices stand out on the matte-black watch dial. For decades, the Sea-Dweller has stayed true to its design considering it is a spitting image of the Sea-Dweller from the ‘80s (Ref. 16660). The movement is a Manufacture Rolex Calibre 3435, which impresses with strength, precision, and long maintenance intervals. Like all Rolex Oyster watches, this model is certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, COSC.
The bracelet that grasps the wrist is that of the satin-finished stainless steel Oyster bracelet. The folding Oysterlock safety clasp displays the famous crown - the Rolex logo.
