Rolex Sea Dweller 116600 Box and Papers 2015 Discontinued Model


This is the discontinued model of the Rolex Sea Dweller 4000 which was only produced for a period of 4 years. This is one of the shortest production ceramic models Rolex has ever made. This model of Sea Dweller measures 40mm in diameter not like the new models which are now 43mm. The size of this watch makes it a very comfortable wear for most people. The case is also very unique in that it was only made for this model and it used design hues from the old case as well as the newer ceramic cases. As this model has been discontinued it makes for a great investment with prices only going one way.


The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 was the comeback model after six years of no Sea-Dweller watches. It retained the traditional stainless steel 40mm Oyster case size, which was welcomed as a smaller and slimmer alternative to the 44mm DSSD. Following the designs of all modern Rolex sports watches, the Sea-Dweller 4000 ref. 116600 dons a Cerachrom ceramic bezel—very different to the aluminum bezel of the former ref. 16600. Not only is ceramic prized for its resistance to fading and scratching, it also looks great. Furthermore, in addition to the new material, the bezel of the Sea-Dweller ref. 116600 also has minute markings that go all the way around instead of just the first 15 minutes. 
Moving from the case and bezel to the dial, the Sea-Dweller ref. 116600 has the “Maxi Dial” with larger lume plots and hands for an ultra modern look. Plus, the ref. 116600 boasts the blue Chromalight display, meaning that in the dark, it glows blue instead of the green of the past SuperLumiNova. Rolex also confirms that Chromalight lights up quicker and lasts longer than SuperLumiNova.
Another great enhancement of the Sea-Dweller 4000 is the bracelet. Its stainless steel Oyster bracelet is outfitted with the super practical micro-adjustable Glidelock extension system. This mechanism allows wearers to easily adjust the bracelet for a perfect fit. While that’s certainly great for divers to fit the Sea-Dweller 4000 over their wetsuit, it’s just as useful if you find your wrist size increasing or decreasing depending on the weather.
The Sea-Dweller 4000 also runs on the Rolex Caliber 3135. The automatic mechanical movement operates at 28,800 beats per hour and offers 48 hours of power reserve. It’s also fitted with the Parachrom hairspring for greater resistance to shocks and temperature changes.
Part of the Caliber 3135 is, of course, the date function, which can be seen at the 3 o’clock position. Worth noting is that this Sea-Dweller—like all other Sea-Dweller watches that came before it—does not have the Cyclops lens above the date.
