This Rolex should not be robbed!Let’s get straight to the point – Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge.
Let’s talk about the characteristics of this watch first – RLX titanium, 50 mm in diameter, water-resistant to 11,000 meters, equipped with a 3230 movement, and has a power reserve of about 70 hours.
Everyone should remember that on March 26, 2012, an experimental watch accompanied James Cameron to dive into the Mariana Trench to a depth of 10,908 meters (35,787 feet). The design inspiration of the deep-sea challenge type comes from it.
As a real powerful diving watch (water resistant to 11,000 meters after all), it is equipped with a helium escape valve and a Ringlock system (which can withstand the huge water pressure in the deep sea). Chromalight luminous material provides a blue glow for clear reading.
The deep-sea challenge case back has the words “Mariana Trench” and the two dates “23-01-1960” and “26-03-2012”, paying tribute to the two deep diving expeditions in history.
First of all, because it does not have very practical wearing performance, it is unlikely that there will be a lot of people competing for it. However, its output is very small (Rolex is a brand that does not say limited, but many watches just can’t wait).
At present, only some Rolex stores in mainland China will arrive. If you are interested, it is best to communicate with the store in advance, although it is not yet possible. Make a reservation, but at least express your will first.
There’s no denying that no one will be diving to depths of 11,000 metres but that’s kind of the beauty of the madness. Technically, Rolex has created a watch that can survive such depths. The industry must applaud the brand for releasing a charming beast, both unhyped and confident in true Rolex fashion. But surely this now puts an end to the unspoken rivalry to produce the deepest-diving diver of all divers. Unless, of course, someone can find any deeper oceanic trenches on Earth to test it out in. Challenge accepted.
