About this watch

I believe every collector has or should have a grail watch, the one piece they prize more highly than any other watch and this doesn’t have to be financially motivated it can be a watch that just has something different that sets it apart, for me that watch is the Seadweller 1665 double red. Nice examples find their way to market so rarely these days that I was delighted to be find this very special piece and had no hesitation purchasing it.

The reference 1665 belongs to the very first Sea dwellers produced commencing in 1967 although the 67 single red I am afraid is more of a unicorn than a grail and very seldom seen in the wild. The 1665 Double red was produced from 1968 until 1977 and during that time was produced with 4 different dials, The example we have here is the MK3.

This example dates to c 1973 and has aged perfectly ,The cream tritium lume works so well with the red writing and I only hope our images show this well enough .I am sure you can see the scratch on the domed crystal over the three hour marker ,this can be polished out if required but I have left the watch exactly as it came to me, likewise the bezel insert has a slight scratch running from the 20 to 30 minute markers but I can forgive that as the fading to pale grey or “ghost” is utterly unique and in my opinion elevates this piece to another level.

The Cal 1570 movement is all correct and keeps perfect time and although the 93150 bracelet has a later date code it is correct for the piece. The case back is correct and carries the last 3 digits of the serial number as it should do.

The case retains crisp definition and shows just the right amount of usage, exactly as it should, I can only hope this stunning watch continues to be worn with pride and not locked away in a safe.

This piece is in stock and ready for worldwide shipping.
