In 2012, the famous director James Cameron drove a submarine to a submarine to 10908 meters under the Mariana Trench, stayed for about 3 hours, and returned safely after about 3 hours, becoming the first explorer in the world to reach this abyss. In this adventure, Rolex’s deep dive experimental watch also followed the experience together. Although it was tied to the outside of the submarine, it remained typically.
Today, Rolex uses it as a blueprint to create an oyster constant-moving deep-sea challenge RLX titanium table. The new work has a super powerful diving performance, with a waterproof depth of 11000 meters (36090 feet). In the laboratory, the watch has passed the simulation pressure test of 13,750 meters (45,112 feet) underwater.
Another highlight of this watch is that it is made of RLX titanium metal. This is a level 5 titanium alloy selected by Rolex, which has the characteristics of light, solid, and corrosion. At that time, the experimental replica luxury watches accompanied by James Cameron deeply penetrated the Mariana Trench and were made of 904L steel. In contrast, this mass-produced watch weighed 30%lighter and was more suitable for wearing.
To meet the diver’s needs in the dark environment, this watch uses a mellow black dial design with a bright Chromalight display, ensuring the divers can read accurately. In addition, the simple clock mark and time clockwise and tunnels are also served by this goal.
Cerachrom ceramic bezel supports unidirectional rotation for 60 minutes, which allows divers to accurately and safely grasp the diving and decompression time. The Patent RingLock system is designed to resist deep sea pressure. This enhanced case structure has three parts:
A thick arched blue crystal mirror
A nitrogen alloy steel pressure ring
An RLX titanium bottom cover
At the same time, the newly equipped oyster strap is also made of RLX titanium, ensuring the watch’s integration. Thanks to the ROLEX Glidelock extension device and the oyster discount extension chain, this watch can be comfortable to wear 7mm diving clothes with a thickness of 7mm.
The bottom cover of the watch is also engraved with digital inscriptions, “26-03-2012” represents the time of James Cameron’s adventure of the Mariana groove, and “23-01-1960” means the first driving submarine to Maliana, The bottom of the trench. The interior has a 3230 automatic chain movement, all Rolex research and development.
The diameter of the case is 50mm, and the thickness is 23mm, of which the thickness of the sapphire crystal mirror is 9.5mm. It is worth mentioning that this watch breaks the profound record of waterproofing and Rolex’s first titanium watch. Can it become a model of diving imitation watches under the blessing of various forms?
