The watch that conquered the deep
Rolex presents the newest generation of its Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller, a legendary watch for diving professionals that was created 50 years ago in 1967.
Like all the Rolex watches, the Sea-Dweller carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive guarantee attests that the watch successfully passed a series of tests in the Rolex laboratories to meet the most severe criteria. Superlative Chronometer status is symbolizes by a green seal that accompanies each watch, along with a five-year international guarantee.
Characteristics: Cyclops lens to enhance reading the date, and the name Sea-Dweller in red on the dial. New 3235 caliber, ceramic bezel, and luminescent display, with a black Cerachrom disk patented and manufactured by Rolex made of extremely hard ceramic that is essentially indestructible. The case is crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant 904L steel and sealed so that only a Rolex watchmaker with a special tool can access the movement. Power backup of 70 hours, Oyster bracelet with large links also made of 904L steel.
Key points: Waterproof to 1,220 meters, this high-tech watch was originally designed to take the pioneers of professional diving to great depths. It is equipped with one of the inventions that help create its reputation: the helium valve patented by Rolex in 1967.
Plus: La Sea-Dweller has been redesigned with a larger case measuring 43mm for its 50th anniversary.
Suggested retail price: 10,400 €
