Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller

Under Water Marvel – The Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller

Rolex unveiled its ‘next-gen’ Sea Dweller in 2009, and while the size (diameter & height) of the watch appears to be upsetting the purists, the Deepsea is attracting a whole new demographic of watch lovers to the Rolex brand. Those who once steered clear of Rolex (mainly due to their under sized case, by todays standards) are scrambling to put together funds to purchase this behemoth of a wrist watch.

The Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller looks very similar to its father, the original ‘Sea-Dweller’. Only it looks like the Deepsea has been on steroids. The Deepsea keeps the classic Rolex aesthetic in-tact, while increasing the size of everything on the original Sea-Dweller. Due to its size, this timepiece is most likely suited to men with large wrists, who don’t regularly wear long sleeve shirts (the Deepsea can be a challenge to fit under a collared shirt sleeve) or for divers who actually go to the extreme depths this watch is water-proofed to.
