Rolex - Deepsea D-Blue Dial Edition Ref. 116660

| 1 Comment
Rolex presented a new version of the Deepsea model with a two-colour gradient dial, from brilliant blue to black, reminiscent of the ocean’s twilight zone where the last trickle of light from the surface disappears into the dark black of the abyss. Rolex called this dial "D-Blue".

The 2014 version of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea (ref. 116660) is a tribute to James Cameron’s historic solo dive to the Mariana trench, the deepest point in the ocean, which he reached on 26 March 2012 piloting the Deepsea Challenger, a 7.3 metres (24 ft) deep-diving submersible.

The Deepsea Challenger submersible was equipped with high-definition 3-D cameras used to capture the first-ever high-resolution images of this last frontier. James Cameron realised a documentary film following the Deepsea Challenge adventure which was premiered on Monday 4 August 2014 in the Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

The brilliant green of the "DEEPSEA" marking on the dial is the same colour of James Cameron's submersible as it is perceived underwater.

Waterproof to an extreme depth of 3,900 metres (12,800 feet), the Oyster Perpetual Deepsea maintains all the features of the black dial version presented in 2008.

The Ringlock system, a case architecture patented by Rolex, is based on three elements: a nitrogen-alloyed steel central ring, a 5 mm‑thick domed sapphire crystal and a case back in grade 5 titanium

With its 4 4 mm Oyster case reinforced with the patented Ringlock System, the Deepsea is the Rolex model for the most demanding professional divers offering unparallelled robustness, precision and reliability. It features a unidirectional rotatable bezel fitted with a 60-minute graduated black Cerachrom insert and it is powered by the calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
