Rolex Sea-Dweller DeepSea Review

Rolex Sea-Dweller DeepSea Watch 

The Rolex Sea-Dweller DeepSea watch is nothing short of a sea monster! Rolex finally caved to the large watch trend and came out rocking a 43mm replacement to the Sea Dweller ref#4000. The Sea-Dweller DeepSea diver’s watch is equipped with a revolutionary Ringlock System, it is built to withstand the immense pressure exerted by water at an extreme depth of 3,900m (12,800 feet). Some of the new improvements come from the movement and the bracelet. The DeepSea uses Rolex’s work horse 3135 automatic movement with the new Paracrom hairspring. The bracelet is a feet of technology, the new Glidelock clasp system is amazing. There has been rumblings for years about their clasp and the Glidelock system puts that conversation to rest. The watch has a large presence at almost 18mm thick and domed sapphire crystal.

Pros - Improved movement, great clasp, will stand the test of time.
