Rolex brand’s very first titanium timepiece, the Replica Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge. Rolex has resisted the trend towards new and modern materials for its cases and bracelets in the past, but this debut timepiece takes the brand forward. The Deepsea Challenge doesn’t just break past Rolex traditions of classic precious metals for its cases, but also in every other way.
First, the dive watch has a water resistance of 11,000m (36,090ft), or approximately seven miles, the depth of the Challenger Deep, the deepest point of the Mariana Trench. The trench, located in the western Pacific Ocean, is the deepest point in the world.
Of course, no one needs a dive Cheap Rolex Replica that will survive the crushing pressure of 11km below sea level, but it’s delightful to know that this watch will survive it should it accidentally slip off your wrist during a dive around the Mariana Islands.
The Deepsea Challenge breaks the brand’s own record-setting Deepsea Sea-Dweller watch, which is rated at 3,900m. Housed in grade 5 titanium that’s monikered RLX titanium, it has the brand’s helium escape valve and Ringlock system that’s present in all of its diving models. Rolex Replica Watches chose RLX titanium because it can be polished to a mirror finish, is highly durable and lightweight but also hypoallergenic and corrosion-resistant.
The new watch also takes Rolex Replica models to a new size at 50mm, the largest wristwatch the brand has ever produced. It’s unclear why the watch size had to be increased to 50mm compared with the existing Deepseas at 44mm, but given that Omega’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep released earlier this year is also oversized at 45.5mm with a water resistance of 6,000m, we can assume it’s likely due to a pressure requirement.
UPDATE: Rolex confirmed that the 50mm case size is necessary for the water resistance and the reason for using RLX titanium. The company also added that this is the largest case size ever used for a Rolex watch in their catalog, and is 23.3mm thick with a 9.5mm thick sapphire crystal.
On the dial, the inner bezel is enlarged, with “Original Gas Escape Valve” and “Ring Lock System” printed under the crystal. The Quality Replica Watches titanium bracelet bears Rolex’s Glidelock and Fliplock extension link systems to enable wearing over a 7mm diving suit.
The watch is powered by the Calibre 3230, which bears Rolex’s Chronergy escapement and Parachrom hairspring. It has a power reserve of 70 hours and is resistant to magnetic influence, with a Superlative Chronometer accuracy of +/- 2 seconds a day.
To test the Rolex Replica Watches water resistance, Rolex worked with Comex (Compagnie Maritime d’Expertises) to develop an ultra-high-pressure tank that can reproduce the pressures of 13,750m underwater in order to meet ISO 6425 requirements.
