Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue Dial Watch

The original Deepsea Challenge was a never-commercially-produced rolex replica au watch that was a super-sized version of the current generation Rolex Deepsea with its 3,900 meter water resistance rating. This was the watch James Cameron wore on his own wrist inside of the Deepsea Challenge submersible during his almost 7 hour long dive. As you can see on the chart above, the already substantially sized Deepsea with its 44 millimeter diameter and 17.7 mm thickness looks extremely small when compared to the monstrous rolex Submariner replica au and its 51.4 millimeter wide and 28.5 thick case, designed to withstand a crippling 13.6 tons per square inch of pressure.. 42 years later in 2012, James Cameron and his Deepsea Challenger submersible (and watch) made it to the deepest spot of the Mariana Trench as a revival of the 1960s mission. Once again, there was a http://www.modserap.com/hublot-big-bang-king-replica-australia-for-sale.html watch on-board. It was the massive Rolex Deepsea Challenge, a 51.4 millimeter wide and 12,000 meter water resistant watch, strapped to the robotic arm of the Deepsea Challenger withstanding the crushing pressure of 1,100 atmospheres. This new Rolex Deepsea D-Blue dial watch for 2014 is a tribute to the 2012 mission. It isn't clear whether he suggested to Rolex that they make the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue dial or it was someone at Rolex who suggested it to Mr. Cameron, but the fact remains that this is the first time in Rolex history that anything like this has been done. Having said that, you need to be familiar with the events of 2012 and the release of James Cameron's 2014 Deepsea Challenge 3D film in order to properly understand the watch in the future. Nothing on the Rolex Deepsea D-Blue dial watch itself at all directly references the film, the voyage, or James Cameron. Thus, it will be important for future collectors to understand all of this when wanting to know what the watch was all about. This is an important point because many brands who make a watch for a special event or occasion do not consider that people 50 years from now might have no idea what a product is all about unless it says so on the product itself. Rolex, of course, isn't the type of company to put anything extra on their timepieces, so it is not really practical to expect them to put some sort of a unique design element on the watch to commemorate the event, but I figured it was worth mentioning. In a sense, collectors can think of the Rolex Deepsea D-Blue dial watch as a consolation to the fact that Rolex will not actually be producing for retail sale the massive Deepsea Challenge concept watch designed for the underwater mission that was water resistant to 12,000 meters. That is over three times the 3,900 meters of water resistance of the Deepsea, but it is designed like a super-sized version of the standard Deepsea. Rolex had just a few weeks to create the Deepsea Challenge concept watch and they only made about 5 or 6 of them.. https://www.liketly.com/blog/125861/rolex-cellini-date-watch-new-for-2014-hands-on/ http://foreignaffairsinstitute.org/groups/rolex-cellini-date-watch-new-for-2014-hands-on/ http://www.croccworld.it/gruppi/rolex-cellini-date-watch-new-for-2014-hands-on/ http://watchesukchm.sub18.ro/2014/11/24/rolex-yacht-master-ii-ref-116681-hands-on-review/
