2018 Rolex Oyster Sea-Dweller Red Writing 126600 50th Anniversary Full Set

The Overview

We are working with a collector who has asked us to sell 6 of his Rolex watches.

Rolex introduced the first commercial diver’s watch, the Submariner, in 1954 with a maximum depth of 100m’s and later increased it to 200m’s. With pressure to increase the depth they introduced the Sea-Dweller in 1967 and after many iterations they introduced the single red 50th anniversary model in 2017. ‘Red’ has always been a key to Rolex dials with the single red Submariner and perhaps the ultimate, the double red Sea-Dweller so with the Sea-Dweller in red this has the potential to be a very sought after watch.

This is a beautiful example of the 43mm Rolex Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary from 2018. The steel case and bracelet do show some signs of regular but careful wear – minor scratches and scuffs but hard to see with the naked eye. The watch was also serviced by Rolex in April 2021 and we have their card. In terms of provenance we have:

  • The Rolex warranty card
  • The Rolex brochures
  • The Rolex swing-tag and green chronometer chip
  • The Rolex boxes – inner and outer
  • A copy of the Rolex service card
  • We will give a full 12 months with our own guarantee.
