In 1967, the famous independent watch brand Rolex launched the first Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller diving watch. It has become the ideal wrist choice for many people. The new version comes with a 44mm case, the lugs and sides of the case have been redesigned, and the enlarged Oyster bracelet is fitted with a unique size folding Oyster safety clasp. For the first time, this professional diving watch is equipped with the 3235 caliber, which is the leading watchmaking technology.
The new Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea is made in Oystersteel with a D-blue (dark blue to jet black) finish. In 2014, the brand launched this watch as to tribute to the Deepsea Challenge. On this expedition, Rolex, in partnership with the National Geographic Society, actively support filmmaker and explorer James Cameron in his dive into the 10,908-meter (35,787-foot) abyss, the Mariana Trench. Trench) the deepest point of the ocean. Like all Rolex watches, the new Rolex Deepsea is certified as a top-level chronometer, guaranteeing top performance when worn.
A watch designed for deep-sea diving, the Rolex Deepsea is water-resistant to 3,900 meters (12,800 feet). It far exceeds the waterproof level of most diving watches on the market, showing the extraordinary results of decades of cooperation with professional divers. In addition to inheriting the waterproof performance of this series, the new timepiece introduces a D-BLUE color dial in appearance, paying tribute to James Cameron’s historic single-person diving record.
The two-tone dial changes from bright blue to deep black, representing the diving from shallow to profound. It has a unique look and feels and is immersive. The Oyster case of the watch has been newly designed to ensure that its extraordinary pressure resistance will not affect the eye’s size and thickness. To this end, the brand innovation invented the Ringlock system. Rolex’s patented Ringlock system case structure allows the Rolex Deepsea watch to withstand enormous pressure in deep water.
The new Rolex Deepsea is equipped with the 3235 movements. This new generation of self-winding movement is developed and manufactured by Rolex, which fully reflects Rolex’s innovative technology and top watchmaking technology. It has been fundamentally improved to perfection. This movement is equipped with Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement.
The new escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus, which is efficient, reliable, and immune to magnetic fields. The balance wheel assembly is the watch’s heart and is equipped with a blue Parachrom hairspring. This hairspring is made of a unique alloy cast by Rolex, which is not disturbed by magnetic fields, and its shock resistance is ten times higher than that of traditional hairsprings. The hairspring is also equipped with a Rolex end ring to remain regular in different positions.
The Rolex Deepsea’s Oyster strap is equipped with an Oysterlock safety clasp to prevent accidental opening and a dual extension system for comfortable wearing even with wetsuits up to 7mm thick. Rolex’s patented Rolex Glidelock device uses the rack under the buckle to gradually extend by about 2 mm per grid, up to a maximum of about 20 mm; the Oyster discount extension link can extend the Rolex Deepsea strap by an additional 26 mm. Both sets of devices have been resized and fitted with newly enlarged straps.
