In 1967, Rolex launched the first Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller watch. 50 years later, this year, the 50th anniversary of the birth of the watch, Rolex replica launched the Rolex Replica New Sea-dweller Ref. 126600. The new replica watches is full of highlights: red letters, bubble windows, larger sizes, and a stronger movement. Today I will take a closer look.
Feature 1: Red
Remember the Rolex Double Red Sea-Dweller for $91,000? The Rolex Double Red Sea-Dweller watch with two red letters on the faceplate is not only a watch, but it is also the best evidence that human technological innovation has turned to explore the deep blue sea.
The original Sea-Dweller, number Ref.1665, was born in 1967. It is equipped with a Cal.1575 automatic winding movement that is water resistant to 500 m / 1,650 ft and then raised to 610 m / 2,000 ft. It has a revolutionary automatic exhaust valve, which can be applied to the environment of breathing and oxygen-mixed gas. The first generation of Sea Dweller is equipped with “Sea-Dweller” and “Submariner 2000” red printed lettering. Collectors nicknamed it “double red.”
The biggest feature of the new Sea Dweller is that the Sea-Dweller font on the faceplate is rendered in red, recreating the classic design of the first generation Sea Dweller. The first generation of Sea-Dweller and the new Sea Dweller, we can see the difference between the two, the new Sea Dweller has only one line of red letters, and the Rolex Replica New Sea-dweller waterproof is 1,220 meters (4,000 feet) instead of the original “Submariner 2000” 610 meters (2,000 feet).
Feature 2: Bubble window
Friends who know Rolex Replica New Sea-dweller watches should know that Rolex’s Sea Dweller calendar window at 3 o’clock is an ordinary calendar window, while the water ghost uses a bubble window, a calendar window with a small window convex lens. This time, Rolex put the classic element of the bubble window on the new Sea Dweller, which is the first time that the Sea Dweller watch has a bubble window, which is quite interesting. There is also a more interesting statement about the origin of the Rolex bubble window.
It is said that the second wife of Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf suffers from eye diseases, often does not see the calendar, and needs to wear glasses every time he watches the calendar, Hans Wilsdorf has been worried about this. Mr. Hans Wilsdorf has a habit of staying in the bathtub for two hours every morning. “He will find the best ideas here,” his widow said.
On one occasion, he suddenly found a drop of water in the bathroom that happened to drop precisely onto the glass at 3 o’clock on the surface of the watch, and the drip was incredibly magnified a lot. Mr. Wilsdorf was inspired, and later the Datejust with a calendar magnifier was born, and Rolex replica later applied the design to his other models, such as the water ghost.
Feature 3: Larger size
I personally feel that in this era of big diameters, the big size should be worth seeing. Rolex has unprecedentedly increased the size of the Rolex Replica New Sea-dweller to 43 mm, and the change from 40 mm to 43 mm is not uncommon, which is rare in Rolex. The reason why Rolex made this change is not that it suddenly “radical”, but the influence of objective factors. Let’s take a look at point four.
Feature 4: Stronger movement
As early as the 3135 upgraded version of the 3235 calibers appeared, there were friends who began to expect it to appear on Rolex’s diving watch, this year Rolex put it on their new Sea Dweller is also worthy of expectations. The objective factor of 43 mm mentioned above is limited to the caliber of this new movement. 3235 is more powerful than the 3135. It has 14 patents and has an accuracy of -2 to +2 seconds per day. It has been awarded the top observatory certification by Rolex in 2015. The power reserve has increased from 50 hours to 70 hours, almost increasing the load of one day. In addition, the movement is also very good at anti-magnetic and anti-vibration. It also has a Rolex global 5-year warranty and is marked with a green seal.
In addition to the above features, Rolex Replica New Sea-dweller also has some other features. We know that this year is the 50th anniversary of the birth of Rolex Sea Dweller. It is also the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Basel Watch Fair. The 50th Anniversary of Sea Dweller was exhibited at the Centennial Bar Show. It can be said that it is quite meaningful and it is also a watch. A big highlight.
The above points make the Rolex Replica New Sea-dweller have the highest “class” in the current Rolex steel-shell sports watch, and the change is quite strong. Undoubtedly, it is bound to become another popular item in the Rolex diving watch, attracting fans to snap up.
