Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA Review

Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA Watch

Rolex has just announced the addition of an exciting new model to the 2008 lineup, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA. If you’re a fan of big watches, the Rolex DEEPSEA will most likely be your cup of tea.

The Rolex DEEPSEA was developed to withstand extreme depths and its waterproof rating is an impressive 3,900 metres (12,800 feet). While the watch at first glimpse may appear to share the same case as a normal Sea-Dweller or Submariner, the DEEPSEA features a brand new case design with a unique architecture called the Ringlock System.

Rolex Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA Ringlock System

The ring is positioned inside the middle case between the crystal and the caseback and it withstands exerted water pressure. The middle case is made from 904L steel and the gorgeous sapphire crystal is slightly domed and has a greater thickness than previous Oyster watches. The caseback is made of titanium and the watch features a helium valve which during the decompression phase of a dive, releases gases that enter the watch.

The Triplock winding crown is triple sealed and screwed onto the case.

The Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA features a unidirectional, rotatable bezel with a 60-minute graduated black CERACHROM disc that allows a diver to keep track of dive time. A new capsule containing luminescent material which emits a blue glow is used for the zero marker, and provides increased visibility in dark, underwater conditions. The indexes and hands on the dial are coated with this same material.

The Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA features the calibre 3135 Rolex movement, known for being precise, reliable, and robust. Other features of the movement include:

  • A PARACHROM hairspring with high resistance to shocks and magnetic fields
  • COSC chronometer certification
  • A power reserve of 48 hours

The DEEPSEA bracelet is made from solid 904L steel and can be easily adjusted to wear over a diving suit due to the new GLIDELOCK clasp and fliplock extension links.
