The Rolex Deepsea was born in 2008 as a descendant of the brand’s first signature dive watch, the Sea-Dweller. The collection is the result of decades of research in the field of professional diving and extreme frontiers. The Deepsea has been tested under some of the most intense conditions, including a descent to the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench. Buying a Rolex Deepsea watch is a smart option for avid divers as well as those looking for a great watch for everyday wear. Shop our inventory of exceptional used Rolex Deepsea watches for sale.
What truly sets the Deepsea apart from the original Sea-Dweller is the patented Ringlock System. This system consists of a 5mm domed sapphire crystal, a central ring made of nitrogen-alloyed steel, and a grade 5 titanium case back. The combination is highly flexible and helps the watch to withstand extreme pressure. Ultimately, the system allows the Deepsea to reach greater depths than the original Sea-Dweller. It offers water resistance up to 3,900 meters. The Deepsea also has a Chromalight display, which gives the hour markers and hands a blue glow for up to 8 hours.
In 2014, Rolex honored filmmaker James Cameron with a new variation of the Deepsea: the Deepsea D-Blue as a tribute to his documentary of the famous descent into the Mariana Trench with a Rolex Deepsea. In 2018, Rolex launched the Ref. 126660, which included a notable update in the form of a new movement: the Caliber 3235. The 3235 offers the brand’s Chronenergy escapement, an impressive 70-hour power reserve, and an anti-magnetic nickel-phosphorus construction. Whether you’re adding to a collection or purchasing your first luxury watch, a Rolex Deepsea is a rugged, classic, enviable timepiece.
