Rolex DEEPSEA Sea-Dweller: Review + Hands-On Video
The Rolex DeepSea Sea-Dweller, model 116660 (aka 116660-BKSO) is powered by the Rolex caliber 3135 mechanical automatic winding movement. It is a Certified Chronometer (COSC). The case is constructed from ultra high-quality 904L stainless steel with the Rolex patented Ring Lock System and a titanium caseback. At 44mm (approximately 48mm with crown) and a thickness of about 18mm, the DEEPSEA weighs in at 215g grams.
The black dial features a date at the 3:00 position. The bezel is the new Rolex Cerachrom (ceramic) style and rotates uni-directionally. The stainless steel Oyster bracelet has the new Rolex Glidelock clasp with the Rolex Fliplock dive suit extension link. In case you want to change over to a NATO strap, the lug width is 21mm. The dome shaped sapphire crystal is 5mm thick. And the DEEPSEA has an incredible depth rating of 3,900 meters or 12,800 feet! This watch is equipped with a helium escape valve and a screw-down crown.
The Rolex DEEPSEA Sea-Dweller that is featured in this video includes the original Rolex boxes, papers, warranty card and tags. The condition is like new. While the retail price (at the time of this post) is $9,800, we are asking much less for this V series originally purchased in 12/10.
