You've all heard the fuss about the all new Rolex Sky Dweller, and now let's step back a bit and look at the first Rolex to held the "Dweller" name, the Rolex Sea Dweller also known as the Rolex Deep Sea. A larger sibling of probably the most iconic watch in history, the Submariner. 52 years ago, Rolex watch accompanied the Trieste on its historic descent to 10,916 metres (35,800 feet) in the Mariana trench This year, Rolex along with National Geographic and explorer James Cameron will embark to the ocean's deepest point and go even deeper than before, calling it the DeepSea Challenge. With this, Rolex needs to bring their A-game and come up with perhaps a watch that can withstand the extreme environment. That means a normal Rolex will not suffice, hence, a special model has to be created, and Rolex has presented a short clip on the creation of this experimental Sea Dweller watch and show you insights on how the piece was created to endure the pressures of the ocean's deepest point.
