Rolex collectors, rejoice: rare 1979 perfect Rolex Sea-Dweller replica watches with a Comex dial just hit the market over at Tropical Watch.
The Swiss made fake Rolex reference 1665 dive watches features a recently polished case that’s in “excellent” condition, according to the dealer. The bezel insert has evenly faded to a light silvery grey, while the black dial is accented with patinated cream-colored hour markers and hands. The date window—sans the cyclops magnification—sits at the 3 O’Clock. The dial, of course, also features the element that makes this particular cheap replica Rolex watches so coveted: the Comex co-branding that marks the collaboration between Rolex and the French diving company.
In 1967, the best Rolex Sea-Dweller fake watches launched as the Swiss manufacturer’s next step in watchmaking, a follow up its iconic Submariner dive watch. The 1:1 online copy Rolex Sea Dweller watches was originally created as an attempt to improve on the Sub. To achieve that goal, Rolex teamed up with Comex (short for Compagnie maritime d’expertises) to develop new models. For 27 years, from 1970 to 1997, the two brands created nine Comex watches between the wholesale replica Rolex Submariner and Sea-Dweller ranges watches.
The first top fake Rolex Sea-Dweller watches, ref. 1665, was created in 1977 and was the first-of-its-kind to sport “Comex” on the dial and the original “600m” text. Experts estimate that only 300 Comex ref. 1665 watches were made between then and the late ‘70s.
While polishing may deter some collectors from this example, the dealer’s description of the watch promises “sharp, prominent bevels” and only light wear. The 2023 China Rolex super clone watches comes with the original 10-link oyster bracelet, which has only “light stretch.” The model number is engraved on its caseback, and the bracelet’s clasp comes stamped with a 1990 date code.
Rolex-Comex watches weren’t sold commercially; they were only offered to Comex and their commercial divers, which explains their rarity and cost. To get your hands on this “retirement” edition of the AAA UK replica Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 watches, you’ll need to fork over a cool $175,350—a substantial figure to be sure, but one that likely won’t daunt deep-pocketed Rolex collectors.
