Let's See Some Sea Dwellers
 
You just have to love the Sea Dweller. With a bit more mass, it wears like a modern watch, but at a glance it is unmistakably vintage. I just got this one back from ABC Watchwerks a few days ago. They touched up the case and put a NOS superdome crystal on it. I will admit that I was a little late to appreciate the allure of the superdome, but I get it now. This one will share time with my other Great White and my Mk IV DR. I am sure there are some great looking Sea Dwellers out there. Let's see some.

I like your three SDwellers , but I can't stop staring at your DRSD- does it get much wrist time. I've yet to see a DRSD in the wild ...

Here is one of my never worn SD.

John, those watches are truly remarkable. You are a very lucky man :cheers:

Here is my favorite. I will try and take an appropriate picture for this thread tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Here is one of mine!http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/12/22/vebeny7a.jpg

Does the deep sea sea dweller count?

Certainly not vintage, but still a classic in every aspect IMO!:dude::thumbsup:

Outstanding John! The new addition looks great, congrats.

Here's mine, it's on a bit of an extended vacation with my dear old Dad in CO.

Al thanks for the kind words; no the DRSD does not get much wrist time, and I have yet to see one in the wild as well. I have seen some pretty rare watches but never a DR. :thumbsup:

Beaumont Miller II 22 December 2013 12:54 PM

Great looking watches everyone.

John thanks... you had me laughing pretty hard. I think the model you purchased in France may be even more rare than you thought. It may be one of the early thin case versions. Ha Ha :cheers:

John, you know how I feel about your recent addition. The case, insert and dial combine to make it the nicest SD I have seen - the real bonus is that you are wearing and enjoying it daily instead of putting it in the safe :thumbsup:

Love these old SD's

Pic of mines but not vintage

Anyone every upgraded\ downgraded from modern SD to vintage SD ?? Regrets ?

Some of these SD's are great looking especially John's DRSD which I realise in a leaque of its own

Did someone say Sea Dwellers???

Russ thanks for the kind words. This one is staying on the wrist. Sam, Rob, Steve, Nathaniel, frosty, and colpol, great looking Sea Dwellers. Ryan wow thanks for the Comex pics. Clay your collection of "666"'s is awesome. I would be surprised if you stopped at 3... and why should you? :thumbsup:

Just the one here - a modern 16600 from 1990, which I love and am currently wearing. Great watches, everyone.

Every one a beauty guys! You just have to love these new and old!

Jason71 23 December 2013 08:11 AM

The good, the bad, and the ugly :-)
 
1665, 16600, 116660, and bastardized 16600 :cheers:

BTW, Surely you can pick-out my favorite in the group. It is the one that stands out.......and it's not the blacked-out aberration. That golden patina, sweet superdome..........Rolex just can't duplicate such sweetness with their newest releases. Don't the others just look plain when sitting beside the BEST??:thumbsup:
