Into the deep

Esquire Malaysia Watch Guide - - Brand Story -

To mark the 50th an­niver­sary of its re­lease, the Rolex Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Sea-Dweller is now big­ger than ever be­fore.

THE SEA-DWELLER is one of Rolex’s least com­mer­cial re­leases but served as a his­tor­i­cally im­por­tant tool watch for deep-sea divers.

At Basel­world 2017, the lat­est it­er­a­tion comes with func­tional up­grades that sees it be­ing up­sized from a 40mm to a 43mm case with a date mag­ni­fier (“Cy­clops”)—both be­ing in­tro­duced for the first-time in the Sea-Dweller’s 50year his­tory.

Made of vir­tu­ally scratch­proof sapphire, Rolex be­lieves that this Cy­clops lens at three o’clock will en­hance the read­ing of the date for divers.

Also, this year’s model comes with the lat­est Cal­i­bre 3235. With 14 patents, Rolex claims that the new move­ment of­fers greater pre­ci­sion, power re­serve, re­sis­tance to shocks and mag­netic fields. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, it does per­form as posited.

At the end of the day, with the de­vice re­tain­ing its func­tion for as deep as a 4,000ft dive—even though no one dives that deep, any­way—the SeaDweller has never failed to de­liver its pur­pose as a tool watch for divers.

The Rolex Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Sea-Dweller is avail­able at all Rolex au­tho­rised deal­ers.
