ROLEX Sea-Dweller 4000

The (1967) Sea-Dweller is back

ROLEX Sea-Dweller 4000 How to “Kill two birds with one stone”: or how to fill a gap in your product portfolio and re-edit a watchmaking legend, a Oyster that has played a key role in Rolex's history. Furthermore, Baselworld 2014 will be remembered as the fair where remakes have been the protagonists. At Baselworld this year the watchmaker from Geneva has filled the gap between the Submariner and the Sea-Dweller DeepSea, and has revamped the classic Sea-Dweller, which was replaced by the super-diver DeepSea back in 2008, a timepiece, the latter, maybe not too fit for everyone's wrist.

ROLEX have not just launched a tuned up Submariner (the ROLEX Sea-Dweller 4000 is water resistant up to 1220m) but has fully drawn inspiration from the 1967 original Sea-Dweller. Take just a look at its highly curved sapphire crystal, it clearly reminds the original 1967 timepiece. Moreover, the 1967 Sea-Dweller has been the first timepiece ever to introduce the helium escape valve, a technical feature that has been patented by ROLEX.

Maybe, to be honest, the only thing that's missing on the ROLEX Sea-Dweller 4000 is the red lettering at 6 o' clock. Otherwise it encloses all the technical features of a modern ROLEX Oyster which are indeed their pillars: the 904 steel 40 mm wide case, the in-house manufactured 3135 caliber, the Cerachrom bezel, the Triplock crown just to mention a few.
