Oys­ter Per­pet­ual Deepsea Sea-dweller. The Ref. 126660 is a hot seller now, but dur­ing the watch fair the sub­tle dif­fer­ences from the out­go­ing Ref. 116660 had some tak­ing is­sue. So what are we talk­ing about here? First, the lugs are slightly ta­pered. It’s not a flat square, which makes the bracelet a hairs­breadth thicker and, sub­se­quently, the Oys­ter­lock slightly dif­fer­ent from ear­lier edi­tions. Th­ese are things that make a big dif­fer­ence to folks who write books about Rolex but for most of us mor­tals, it’s not re­ally no­tice­able. The big deal though is the Cal­i­bre 3235 inside the piece. This is a move­ment made by Rolex us­ing Rolex stan­dards, called the Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Strangely, Rolex has made two di­als avail­able—the reg­u­lar black and a new blue gra­di­ent dial. If this 44MM beast is some­thing that you want, good luck with the wait­ing list!
