Diving Into A Pair of Deepsea Sea-Dwellers

Diving Into A Pair of Deepsea Sea-Dwellers

Capable of diving down to 12,800 feet (3,900 meters), the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller is one genuine diving watch. While the historical backdrop of the Rolex Sea-Dweller returns to the 1960s when the brand produced a unique dive watch for COMEX that could accompany their divers on ultra deep dives, the Deepsea Sea-Dweller is a moderately new model having made its debut in 2008. The generally powerful of Rolex device watches, the brand offers two adaptations of the Deepsea Sea-Dweller ref. 116660.

As a modern Rolex sports watch, the Deepsea Sea-Dweller ref. 116660 advantages from all the contemporary trimmings the brand has to bring to the table, like the Cerachrom bezel, Chromalight display, Glidelock framework and others.

What do all these Rolex expressions mean? All things considered, most importantly, Cerachrom alludes to the scratch and fade safe ceramic bezel on top of the 44mm Oyster case. And obviously, this being a diving watch, the bezel just turns in a single direction as a security safety measure since, in such a case that the bezel is accidently turned, it will display a more drawn out elapsed time instead of a more limited one. Secondly, Chromalight alludes to the durable iridescent dial that sparkles a brilliant blue tone in low light-a genuinely necessary component when diving in dark waters. And at long last, the Glidelock framework is a reasonable component on the Oyster wristband to permit the wearer to adjust the attack of the watch, much over a diving suit.

Unlike the Sea-Dweller ref. 16660 , there have been numerous updates. The main element of the ref. 116660 however, is the helium get away from valve (HEV). This instrument patented by Rolex in 1967-is one component that allows the watch to reach down to 12,800 feet. The HEV naturally delivers any developed helium and other gasses inside the Deepsea to prevent damage. Another factor that empowers the ref. 116660’s protection from extraordinary depth is the 5 mm-thick domed sapphire gem securing the dial. Especially critical is the absence of Cyclops focal point on the sapphire precious stone, regularly found on Rolexes with a date work. The domed precious stone, nitrogen-alloyed steel focal ring, and titanium caseback structure the watch’s development that Rolex alludes to as the patented Ringlock system.

Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue

In 2012, James Cameron was in charge of the Deepsea Challenge expedition where he brought a submarine down to 35,787 feet to arrive at the sea’s deepest point. Along for the memorable ride was in all honesty a trial Rolex Deepsea Challenge watch strapped to the submersible.

Two years after the expedition, Rolex presented a commemorative edition of the Deepsea Sea-Dweller ref. 116660. to honor James Cameron’s accomplishment. The Deepsea Sea-Dweller ref. 116660 D-Blue is in fact identical to the preceding Deepsea aside from its dial. Rather than the dark dial, Rolex furnished this ref. 116660 model with a dial that gets going as blue and gradually transforms into dark. This, accordingly to Rolex, is to address the shade of the water as one endeavors deeper down to the lower part of the sea. Moreover, the “DEEPSEA” text moved from 12 o’clock to over 6 o’clock and is in a similar shading as James Cameron’s submersible.

Whether you go for the dark dial ref. 116660, or the D-Blue form, both ultra dive observes consummately represent Rolex’s central goal to consistently be better, greater, and more badass than everyone else.
