Restoration: Rolex Sea-Dweller – Double Red

Arguably the most collectible of the vintage Rolex Sea-Dweller’s is the famous ‘Double Red.’ The watch gets its nickname from the double line of red writing that features on the dial.

This watch was in good condition and needed a general overhaul. Even though it had nothing extensive to do, great care must be taken when servicing a watch of this caliber. The value lies in the dial and hands and the utmost care must be taken.

Whilst the Rolex 15xx series movements are simple, they can take some time to service correctly and ensure accurate time-keeping.
