Beautiful Vintage Watch Review – Replica Rolex Double Red Sea-Dweller 1665

With a wealth of vintage watches accumulated on my blog, ranging from Rolex and Omega to Panerai, each piece has garnered significant attention and engagement from readers. Today, I am thrilled to unveil another replica Rolex timepiece that is poised to spark a new wave of excitement and discussions – the Double Red Sea-Dweller. This highly coveted vintage watch is a must-have for collectors. Launched in the 1960s as an offshoot of the Submariner, early Sea-Dweller models boasted slim cases, distinctly different from the contemporary iterations featuring bulkier cases and crystals.

The vintage Double Red Sea-Dweller, a homage to the replica Rolex reference 1665, derives its intriguing name from a distinct feature found on the dial. Positioned above the white printings at 6 o’clock, two lines of red text – “SEA-DWELLER” and “SUBMARINER 2000” – provide the origin of this unique designation. Moreover, this Sea-Dweller stands out from its counterparts due to several dial intricacies. Notably, its hour markers are elliptical in shape, with the exception of a triangular marker at 12 o’clock and bar-shaped markers at 6 and 9 o’clock. Each marker boasts a subtle yellow tint, deviating from the traditional white markers. Thin white sticks denote the minute scales, while a date window with black numerals against a white backdrop is positioned at 3 o’clock. In a departure from the standard “SWISS MADE” label, the dial proudly displays “SWISS – T < 25” at the 6 o’clock position.

The bi-directional rotating black bezel on this replica watches emulates the functionality of its genuine counterpart. The case back is adorned with distinctive curved engravings, featuring the iconic Rolex Logo and the inscriptions “ROLEX,” “ROLEX PATENT,” “GAS ESCAPE VALVE,” and “OYSTER.” Mimicking the design of modern Sea-Dweller models, the case back is securely fastened with screws. Notably, numerical engravings adorn the back side of the bracelet, their exact significance remaining a mystery. Powering the replica 1665 is an Asian clone ETA 2846 movement, equipped with 17 jewels and oscillating at a frequency of 21,600 times per hour. A rigorous movement test revealed a slight deviation of only 7 seconds per day, as depicted in the accompanying image.
