Available today, UNWORN, in delivery stickers with BOTH swing-tags and NO silly nonsense about the warranty card being withheld*! Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA D-Blue model 116660 with distinctive graduated / green text dial, on Oyster Glidelock 98210 bracelet. We are selling it at a premium to the list price. Ask for our Rolex-trained specialists Phil or Paul to discuss this watch with you. The model remains exceptionally popular and was always hard to source in the UK (where a weak pound has made our watches seem cheap to buyers from abroad). With the launch of the new Sea-Dweller 126600 and DeepSea 126660 it seems that this model has been discontinued and might be expected to enjoy even greater interest from collectors. Comes with original boxes, DeepSea booklet, both swing-tags and international warranty card dated October 2017. The last NEW RRP of this exact model was £9,150 and its replacement is now £9,700 – but lack of supply will mean that it should endure as a desirable piece.
* While their clients have to wait months or years for certain models in the stainless steel Professional series of watches, some Rolex main agents are now stripping new watches of delivery stickers, keeping the numbered swing-tag and refusing to supply the warranty card until a year or more after sale. This is an attempt to hinder the premium resale or “grey market” in the watches which their very lack of supply causes.
