The Rolex Deepsea Replica Challenge, a prototype watch that could withstand water pressure to a depth of 15,000 meters, was strapped on the mechanical arm as well as on Cameron’s wrist.
The Deep Sea Special was virtually unwearable because of its enormous 35-mm thickness and domed, semi-spherical crystal above the dial. The second version was considerably smaller. It was based on the innovative case structure introduced in 2008 for the mass-produced Rolex Replica model, which has pressure resistance to a depth of 3,900 meters.
Fake Rolex introduced a special version of this extreme dive watch with a “D-Blue” dial as a tribute to Cameron’s deep dive. Instead of the completely black dial, this watch has a dial that gradually changes color from dark blue to black, the way the ocean gets darker as it becomes deeper. The Deepsea lettering on the dial is the same green color as the paint on Cameron’s submersible.
The thickness of the case walls and the external dimensions can be increased to the point where a watch can be made with very high water resistance. But Swiss Rolex Replica did not approach the problem this way. From the beginning, the Deepsea engineers’ goal was to create a wearable watch.
The Deepsea is actually designed for a water depth of 4,900 meters, and every watch is tested underwater at this 25-percent higher pressure.
