Rolex doesn’t normally release watches outside of its normal Baselworld schedule, but today they have made their very first exception to that rule by releasing the new Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller with D-Blue Dial 116660 watch. It has a blue and black gradient dial with a vibrant green colored “DEEPSEA” text on the dial. Interestingly enough the reference number for the D-Blue is the same as the standard Rolex black-dialed Deepsea replica watches UK.
Another testament to the unique nature of this occasion is how Rolex teased that the announcement would be on August 4th 2014 a few days in advance. Many considered Rolex to be quite late with the announcement as it was August 5th in much of the world by the time it was released. With that said, the Rolex Deepsea D-Blue watch is finally here, so let’s see what details we know and how it relates to Rolex’s relationship with movie maker James Cameron.
The new Rolex Deepsea D-Blue fake watches are dedicated to James Cameron’s successful descent in 2012 to the deepest point on our planet located at an immense depth of 10,900 meters below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. An upcoming film will be released a few days from now, known as Deepsea Challenge 3D. The film will explore Cameron’s descent and some of the scientific successes of the voyage. Cameron himself would have never done the dive if there was not some scientific outcome possible. On the dial of the watch the green color of the “DEEPSEA” label represents the decent of Cameron’s submersible as it is the same color.
We previously discussed the History of dive watches, where Rolex has an incredibly diverse journey of creating waterproof Rolex replica watches. Not only did Rolex create the first seriously water resistant timepiece with the Rolex Oyster in 1926, but about 30 years later they also created the Submariner, one of the most widely recognized diver’s watches of all time.
The limits of what a watch can achieve in terms of water resistance have been pushed to their absolute extreme by the brand in 1960 when, for the first time ever, a wristwatch made it to the deepest point on Earth. Known as the Rolex Deep Sea Special, the watch dove to about 10,900 meters below the surface of the Pacific Ocean with two brave men and their 150 ton submersible called the Trieste.
