Six things to look for in your Rolex Sea-Dweller

Rolex-Sea-Dweller-Double-Red-Dial

Dial Colouring

Subtle variations in the dial and text decoration on your Rolex Sea-Dweller can help you to identify not just your model but the specific edition of that model. Things to look for:

  • Is ‘SEA-DWELLER ’ written in red or white?
  • What is the colour & depth of the the waterproof rating?
Rolex-Sea-Dweller-COMEX-dial

Comex editions

There are a limited number of Sea-Dweller watches made especially for Comex. These editions are usually marked with the Comex logo on the face and were engraved on the back. If you have one of these models provenance will add value to your watch.

  • Is it depth rated to 200m, 600m or 610m?
Rolex-Sea-Dweller-Single-Red-Dial

Age

There are editions of the Sea-Dweller that are still readily available and so it is the older, vintage models and limited editions that command the most interest from collectors.

Models with the smaller gas escape valve (on models prior to the 16660) are generally more sought after.

Rolex-Box-&-Papers

Box & Papers

When looking to value your vintage Rolex Sea-Dweller the original box and papers should be present to get the best valuation for your timepiece.

If your Sea-Dweller has an interesting history or story to tell, you should also source the proper proof and provenance (paperwork, photographs etc.) in order to get the best prices and attract collectors.

Condition

When considering the condition of your Rolex Sea-Dweller first check that wear is the same all over. If a certain part of the watch shows more, or less, wear than the rest this would indicate that some parts have been replaced or repaired, which can impact the value. However, damaged watches can still be valuable, especially if they are pieces with provenance.

Rolex-Model-and-Case-Numbers

Reference & serial No.

Found at the 6’oclock side of the case on vintage Rolex, the serial number is the watch’s unique identity and shows when it was made. The reference number is on the 12o’clock edge and describes the model and what your Rolex Sea-Dweller is made from. The model and time of production are two of the most important factors in determining the value of your Rolex.

Mark Littler LTD 5 star Google reviews

“I found Mark’s details online after looking to sell a collectable bottle of whisky. I was going to use a well know auction site but Mark secured an offer higher than the highest estimation from any auction house, within days, even after the 10% commission was deducted. Communication was perfect; punctual, to the point and polite. Collection and delivery were taken care of by Mark and instruction was clear and easy to follow. Payment was received to my bank within days of posting the bottle. I can’t recommend Mark enough; he runs a tight ship gets top end offers from his clients and delivers quickly.”

Rod Fountain, via Google
