Rolex - Deepsea Ref. 126660, new 2018 model

When it was first introduced in 2008, the Deepsea model surprised many Rolex fans for its huge size. In 2014, the original black dial was followed by the Ref. 116660 D-blue dial edition sporting a deep-blue to pitch-black gradient.

At Baselworld 2018, Rolex introduced a new Deepsea version featuring a 44 mm Oystersteel (the new trademark that Rolex uses to identify L904 stainless steel, a highly corrosion-resistant and shiny alloy) case with redesigned lugs and sides and a broader Oyster bracelet, as well as a correspondingly adapted Oysterlock folding safety clasp.


The new Rolex Deepsea Ref. 126660 is equipped for the first time with Calibre 3235, a new-generation movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.

A professional divers’ watch designed for the deep, the Deepsea is waterproof to 3,900 metres / 12,800 feet. Its Oyster case was developed to ensure exceptional resistance to pressure without compromising the size and thickness of the watch.

The resulting Ringlock System, a patented case architecture, is composed of three elements: a domed 5.5 mm-thick sapphire crystal, a high-performance nitrogen-alloyed stain-less steel ring, positioned inside the middle case of the watch, and a case back in Oystersteel and grade 5 titanium.


The Triplock winding crown, equipped with three seals, screws down against the case, completing the waterproofness system and guaranteeing watertight security akin to a submarine’s hatch.

The case of the Rolex Deepsea is also equipped with a helium escape valve, developed and patented by Rolex in 1967, which works to protect divers’ watches created for the deep. It allows excess pressure built up in the watch case to escape during a diver’s decompression phase in a hyperbaric chamber.


To ensure absolute reliability, every single Rolex Deepsea is tested to ensure its waterproofness to a depth of 3,900 metres with an additional safety margin of 25 per cent.

The unidirectional rotatable bezel of the Rolex Deepsea is fitted with a 60-minute graduated Cerachrom insert made of an extremely hard and corrosion-resistant black ceramic, which is virtually scratchproof and whose colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays.


The numerals and the graduations are moulded in the ceramic and coloured with platinum using a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process.

The new Rolex Deepsea is powered by the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) self-winding Calibre 3235 movement. Its Chronergy escapement combines high energy efficiency with great reliability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. The oscillator, the true heart of the watch, has a blue antimagnetic Parachrom hair-spring which is up to 10 times more precise than a traditional  hairspring in case of shocks.


Thanks to its new barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 extends to approximately 70 hours or nearly 3 days.

The Rolex Deepsea’s Oyster bracelet features an Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening and a double extension system that allows the watch to be worn comfortably over a diving suit up to 7 mm thick. Using a toothed panel located under the clasp cover, the patented Rolex Glidelock system allows fine adjustment of the bracelet length in approximately 2 mm increments up to around 20 mm while the Fliplock extension link extends the Rolex Deepsea bracelet by 26 mm.


Like all Rolex watches, the Deepsea is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification, guaranteeing a precision of −2 /+2 seconds per day, redefined by Rolex in 2015.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Ref. 126660 has a price of Euro 11,700 / US$ 12,000 compared to Euro 11,400 / US$ 11,700 of the black dial version. rolex.com
