Case: The early thin profile case has been polished in the past showing sharp prominent bevels and some light wear from use. The black bezel insert is also in excellent condition showing only light wear from use. There is a personal engraving on the original Patent Pending case back.

Bracelet: The 12 link Oyster bracelet is excellent showing only very light stretch. The clasp is stamped with a 2006 date code.

Accessories: None.

Notes: Rare in the true sense of the word this MK 1 Patent pending Sea-Dweller is in remarkable condition with a sharp case and nearly flawless dial.
