If there’s one Rolex model that’s worthy of being called the “tank” of their collection, it’s the Sea-Dweller. This deep-diving watch became the big brother to the Submariner way back in 1967, and the model has been evolving since then.
The Sea-Dweller is one of the most technically impressive and advanced dive watches in the world. Its foundation is based upon the iconic Submariner. However, it possesses stronger capabilities, like an increased depth rating. It is a durable tool watch, and it brilliantly showcases the Rolex brand’s timeless aesthetic.
The Sea-Dweller features a distinctive black dial and large luminescent hour markers. Capable of resisting pressures at up to 4,000 feet (12,000m) below the surface with a unidirectional 60-minute rotatable bezel, the Rolex Sea-Dweller is amongst the ultra-resistant divers’ watches engineered by Rolex for deep-sea exploration.
In 2012, Rolex took the title as the deepest diving watch on earth, as the prototype Deep Sea Challenge ventured to the very bottom of the ocean. The Rolex Sea-Dweller line of watches may not be as diverse or expansive as the Submariner collection. It’s because the brand specifically designed the line for professional saturation divers and made a point to keep the collection as tool/utility-focused as possible, with a two-tone variation only joining the lineup in 2019. We have many outstanding models in the Sea-Dweller collection, browse through them, and buy a watch that can be your partner in crime for all your adventures.
