Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge




This brand has been to the depths of the Mariana Trench and withstood multiple expeditions deep underwater, especially with explorer and filmmaker James Cameron (think: Titanic). Now, Rolex's recently released Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge watch takes underwater journeys to new depths. The watch, inspired by one that accompanied Cameron on an epic nearly 11,000-meter descent in 2012, sets a world record in that it is water resistant to 11,000 meters (approximately 36,000 feet). It is crafted of RLX titanium with a helium escape valve and the well-known Rolex Ringlock system to ensure water resistance. The number of technological advances and performance features packed into this watch will boggle the mind.

Rolex is held as a global standard of watchmaking and as a marker of personal success for the individual. Founded by the creator of the first waterproof wristwatch, Rolex has historically been a step ahead within the horological industry and continues to uphold this reputation to date with the recent launch ofits GMT-Master II. Featuring a 24-hour Cerachrom bezel insert that enables time telling in a different zone, this Rolex watch makes geographic constriction impossible.Demonstrating Rolex's expertise in water resistance, in 2022 the brand also debuted the Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge watch that can withstand extreme pressures. The new Yacht-Master 42 is also ideal for sea exploration thanks to its robust Oysterflex bracelet with an 18ct gold clasp and an enhanced Chromalight display. Master of the depths and of the skies, Rolex additionally released a new generation of Air-King featuring improved legibility through the use of an optimized luminescent material.
