Description

The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Ref 116600 marked the return of the Sea-Dweller to the Rolex lineup in 2014. Water-resistant to 4000 feet, the Ref 116600 features a 40 mm stainless steel case, a cyclops-less crystal, and a date window on the dial. Only in production for a few years, the SD 4000 is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after timepieces by Rolex collectors.

The History:

The Rolex Sea-Dweller was designed with saturation divers in mind. Due to the use of helium in the gas mixture during saturation dives, helium particles would accumulate in the cases of diving watches, during extended periods at depth, which would then escape through the weakest parts of a watch during decompression. Many times, it would escape by popping the Plexiglas crystal off of the watch. Rolex developed the helium escape valve, built into the side of the watch case, to combat this issue, and therefore allow for a safe release of the gas, and continued reliability and durability of the watch.

The Watch:

The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Ref 116600 has a 40 mm Stainless Steel case, with a slightly domed sapphire crystal, with no cyclops over the date wheel. Powered by the Calibre 3135 movement, the Ref 116600 has a 48-hour power reserve, a Parachrom hairspring, and COSC certification. Water-resistance rated to 4000 feet, the SD 4000 has a helium gas release valve on the 9 o’clock side of the case.

The Details:

This Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Ref 116600 is in very good condition, with stickers still present, as visible in the photos. There is a small scratch across the bezel pearl, which does not affect the lume, and the pearl is secure and not loose. This set comes with the outer white sleeve, double boxes, Warranty Card, Warranty Cardholder, Warranty Booklet, Owners Manual, Chronometer Hang Tag, and Serial Number Hang Tag. The bracelet is the Rolex Oyster, with a Glidelock extension system, as well as an additional divers extension.
