Rolex Presents The Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge


It’s the divers’ watch that defies the limits

Filmmaker and explorer James Cameron is well known for many reasons, but perhaps his most notable achievement would be directing the 2012 blockbuster hit, Avatar. This year, he is directing the sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water and to celebrate that, he is releasing, in partnership with Rolex, a timepiece made for divers.Rolex

It is none other than the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge, a watch inspired by his very own experimental watch adorning his wrist on his historic 10,9098 metre descent into the Mariana Trench on 26 March 2012. This was a milestone in the world of Rolex divers’ watches and it is guaranteed to be waterproof up to 11,000 metres.

Crafted from RLX titanium and equipped with a helium escape valve as well as the Ringlock system, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge is capable of accompanying divers in any environment, be it open water diving, submersible dives or even in hyperbaric chambers. This watch can take it all.Rolex

Moreover, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge has all the credentials to back up its toughness. Years of research went into making this marvel of horology able to withstand the immense pressure of the deep blue sea and still look jaw dropping. Every single part of this 50m watch was built to never crack.

Additionally, the timepiece pays homage to explorers of the abyss as it features the words “Mariana Trench” engraved onto the case back along with the dates “23-01-1960” and “26-03-2012,” which tribute the two dives into the Trench by Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh in 1960, and Director James Cameron in 2012.

This is also a nod to the fact that on both expeditions, the divers took experimental Rolex watches with them. What’s more, the new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge marks a new milestone in engineering and technical prowess, a value shared by Rolex engineers and deep-sea explorers.

Furthermore, being waterproof has always been at the core of Rolex’s watchmaking expertise and so this watch pushing the boundaries of that quality further than ever before sets an unprecedented high for the watchmaker and is a reflection of the almost unrivaled success of Director James Cameron’s filmAvatar.
