This year is the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Sea-Dweller, and it’s definitely not going unnoticed. At Baselworld we had the debut of the new Sea-Dweller, with it’s single line of red text on the dial and the controversial Cyclops magnifier over the date window. Ben went on to review the watch in this A Week On The Wrist (spoiler alert – it’s complicated). It’s hard to talk about the new Sea-Dweller without looking back at its history though, considering the original watches that inspired the current incarnation.
One of the most elusive and rare Rolex Sea-Dwellers replica watches UK are the so-called “Single Red.” They rarely come up for sale and sell for crazy prices when they do. Different dealers and collectors will tell you different total numbers – anywhere from five to 20 – but Jose at Perezcope has found 12 examples and compiled 11 of them in an in-depth study of the idiosyncratic dive watch. It’s a pleasantly nerdy look at one of the rarest Rolexes of all time.
