Luxury watch maker Rolex celebrates director James Cameron’s historic 2012 solo dive to the deepest place on Earth, the bottom of the Mariana trench, with this special edition of its Deepsea watch model.
Coming with a D-Blue Dial, the wristwatch features an innovative Chromalight display on the dial that pushes the boundaries of visibility in dark environments. Giving off a blue luminescene glow, its visibility lasts up to twice as long as that of standard luminescent materials. The zero marker on the bezel, in the form of a triangle, is also visible in the dark reaches of the ocean, thanks to a capsule containing the same luminescent material.
The Rolex Deepsea is engineered to be waterproof to an extreme depth of 12,800 feet. Its 44 mm Oyster case, reinforced with the brand’s patented Ringlock System, was designed to provide the highest degree of resistance in a size that remains wearable and practical. A nitrogen-alloyed steel central ring forms the backbone of the system, accompanied by a 5 mm‑thick, domed sapphire crystal and a case back in grade 5 titanium. It also features Rolex’s Helium Escape Valve, which acts as a miniature decompression chamber for the watch and is essential for deep saturation diving.
