About Men's Sea-Dweller

Rolex Sea-Dweller - The ultra-resistant, professional divers' watch

The Rolex Sea-Dweller is a line of diver's watches by the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Rolex. Standard models from the Sea-Dweller line have an underwater diving depth of 1,200 meters, while the Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA models are resistant up to an outstanding 3,900 meters. The first watch in the Rolex Sea-Dweller line was the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller Submariner 2000 which came to market in 1971. The deep-black gradient dial reflects the depths of the ocean that the Sea-Dweller was designed to travel to, the perfect accessory to those who journey into the abyss. Professional or hobbyist, the Sea-Dweller is the ultimate timepiece for any diver.

Rolex first started the development for the Sea-Dweller in the 1960s, where the needs of professional divers required watches that would work smoothly even at depths of around 300 meters. A prototype of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller Submariner 2000 was produced in 1967, but the final version of the watch would not become available to the public until 1971.

The first Sea-Dweller model could travel to depths of 500 meters, with some of the models being awarded to pioneers in underwater exploration. The Sea-Dweller Submariner 2000 was succeeded by the Sea-Dweller 4000, which could travel to an incredible 1,200 meters, more than double than what was originally capable with its predecessor. Sea-Dweller watches use a helium escape valve to aid in saturation diving.

In 2012, Rolex created the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA CHALLENGE which was given to the film director James Cameron when he took the DSV Deepsea Challenger to explore the deepest surveyed point of the ocean. The watch was designed to function in depths around 11,000 meters - a feat that has not yet been beaten. While most wearers of the Sea-Dweller are not traveling to the icy depths of the Mariana trench, whether you are a professional or hobbyist diver the Sea-Dweller is the perfect companion.
