Rolex presents a new variant of the Oyster Perpetual Deepsea. For the first time, this dive watch is offered in 18k yellow gold and features a blue Cerachrom bezel with ceramic 60-minute graduations, accompanied by a blue lacquered dial embellished with “DEEPSEA” written in powder yellow. Its weight? 320 grams!

This edition also introduces a technical innovation: the high-strength compression ring of the Ringlock system is made of ceramic. This Cerachrom ring, offers a circular satin finish with engraved inscriptions and gilding, representing a new integration of ceramic into the watch case. The compressive and deformation resistance properties of this material contribute to the waterproofness of the watch.

The Rolex Deepsea is equipped with the caliber 3235, a cutting-edge movement that allows the display of the date in addition to the hours, minutes and seconds. Like every Rolex watch, the Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea is Superlative Chronometer certified, ensuring exceptional performance on the wrist.

Launched in 2008, the Rolex Deepsea introduced the Ringlock system, a unique case architecture that guarantees resistance to the extreme pressures of great depths. Conforming to the aesthetic codes and essential characteristics of the Professional watches of the Oyster Perpetual collection, the Deepsea meets the high expectations of professional divers in terms of resistance to underwater pressure, precision and reliability.

Ringlock System

The Rolex Deepsea has been carefully designed for maximum readability, with a streamlined dial design and Chromalight technology that ensures long-lasting brightness. The luminescent indexes and hands make it easy to read even in poor visibility conditions.

Rolex played a pioneering role in the development of special ceramics for bezels and monobloc bezel discs. These materials, extremely resistant and with long-lasting colours, offer inert and anti-corrosion protection. Thanks to its unique skills and manufacturing methods, Rolex produces its ceramic components in total independence.

The Oyster case of the Rolex Deepsea has a diameter of 44 mm and is water resistant to 3.900 meters. Crafted from a solid block of 18k yellow gold, it offers optimal protection to the movement housed within. The helium escape valve, patented in 1967, ensures safety during deep diving.

The Oyster bracelet, developed in the 30s, is rugged and durable, with a folding clasp system and the innovative Rolex Glidelock that allows for precise length adjustments without the use of tools. The ceramic inserts improve the fluidity and durability of the bracelet.

Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea is also Superlative Chronometer certified, a standard introduced by Rolex in 2015. This certification attests that every watch that leaves the brand's workshops has successfully passed a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories, according to rigorous criteria, after the official certification of the movements by the Swiss Institute of Official Chronometry (COSC). Internal certification tests apply to the fully assembled watch, after the movement has been inserted into the case, ensuring exceptional performance on the wrist in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproofness and automatic winding.

The accuracy of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer is on the order of -2 / +2 seconds per day – the rate deviation tolerated by the brand for a finished watch is significantly smaller than that accepted by the COSC for official certification of the movement alone.
