Baselworld 2017: The Watch That Conquered The Deep

30 March 17

Rolex is introducing the latest generation of its Sea-Dweller, a legend among professional divers’ watches...

At Baselworld 2017 Rolex has announced the introduction of the latest generation of its Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller, a legend among professional divers’ watches created 50 years ago in 1967. The Rolex Sea-Dweller is water resistant to 1,220 metres or 4,000 feet and features an innovation Chromalight display on its dial which pushes back the boundaries of visibility in dark environments. Both the Rolex Sea-Dweller and the Rolex Deep-Sea act as a symbols of Rolex’s extensive collaboration with diving professionals.

The new Sea-Dweller features a larger, 43 mm case and the new calibre 3235, at the forefront of watchmaking technology and employed for the first time in a Rolex Professional category watch. 

To enhance the reading of the date, it is equipped, also for the first time, with a Cyclops lens on the crystal at 3 o’clock. The dial bears the name Sea-Dweller in red, a reference to the first model.

Like all Rolex watches, the new Sea-Dweller carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015 to ensure singular performance on the wrist.
