1665, ‘Double Red’ Sea-Dweller, Steel
A ref. 1665 ‘Double Red’ Sea-Dweller with a Mark 3 dial. This example sports pumpkin tritium, a deep steely purple bezel, and great case. The 1665 was the first Sea-Dweller, born out of a need to meet the demand of saturation diving in the early 1960s. This particular 1665 looks like it fulfilled its role, thoroughly patinated. If not a tool of purpose any longer today, it is certainly still an object of desire; a Sub turned up to 11.
