The Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue 116660 replica watches are really cool in the flesh. Rolex said it was the first of its kind and possibly the last of its kind – a watch specially designed to be in honor of an event and for a person. About two weeks ago, Rolex did something very unique for the brand, and that was to release a new version of an existing watch in honor of James Cameron and his journey to one of the deepest parts of the ocean in his aptly named Deepsea Challenger submersible. Now, we have some hands-on pictures of the retail version of the Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue watch, which is already available at Rolex retailers.

We previously mentioned Rolex cheap fake watches that it was an oddity for Rolex to release a timepiece outside of their normal Baselworld watch trade show schedule. Rolex admits it was a unique thing for them to do, but praised the overall goal of the project and their desire to try new things. Rolex is a brand with an image so strong that many agree it is their main job is to preserve rather than promote. At the same time, any company interested in keeping the hearts and minds of its customers close must always offer something new.
The Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller D-Blue watch (Deepsea D-Blue for short) is certainly new, but also very familiar – a running theme with most fresh things we see coming from “the Crown.” The dial is new, the theme is new, and the release strategy is new. What is the same is the Deepsea watch model itself, and as of right now, it still has the same “116660” reference number of the standard black dial Deepsea timepiece.

We’ve never really done a hands-on of the Deepsea before, so in addition to talking about the new D-Blue variant in honor of James Cameron, I’d like to discuss the Deepsea a bit in general. It is, in short, one of the more quirky Rolex Oyster Professional watches, but nevertheless highly desirable and lovable.
Let’s start by talking about the new D-Blue dial itself. As you know, the design of the dial is meant to mimic the voyage of James Cameron in his Deepsea Challenger submersible mission from 2012. The blue to black gradient of the dial is meant to resemble ocean water that gets black as you go deeper because sunlight can only penetrate so far. The green color of the “DEEPSEA” label is the same color as the Deepsea Challenger submersible. James Cameron himself is an avid watch lover and has been a Rolex guy for a while. His main watch seems to be a Rolex Deepsea.
In this edition of Watch What-If,” designer Niklas Bergenstjerna takes a look at the 2014 Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 replica dive watches , and imagines what it would be like for this icon-inspired diver to have been inspired by other natural frontiers. In a sense, the concept is “what if the Sea-Dweller 4000” was not a dive watch at all, but rather inspired by water, land, air, and space? Of course, at heart, the design of the Rolex Sea-Dweller is all about diving, so this is a mere artistic taste of what it might look like rendered as though it were inspired by something else.

Above is what Bergenstjerna calls the “Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Land,” inspired by just that. In his words it is “a watch sprung from the deep woods. It has surfaces from the trees with earth tone colors. What about exploring the wild wearing a gold watch with a cork dial? Sure, why not! The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Land is the ultimate ‘gold-digger’ watch!”
The next one is inspired by the sky, namely space. This is an almost kitschy look at the achievements of space travel and how Rolex stainless steel case fake watches have been a big part of that celebration. The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Space is “a watch for the guys who took a giant step for mankind!” Be it in space or otherwise. It is “the no. 1 Star-Watch to wear when being among Stars!” It plays with the concept of luxury and stars (as they are part of the texture of the gold).

Is a dive watch inspired by water? Yes and no. The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Water concept is just that and take inspiration from flowing liquid and sea creatures. Niklas imagines this Sea-Dweller design as “Damascus steel with the illusion of a flowing almost liquid metal surface. It has a dial with a close-up shark skin pattern. The ultimate dive watch should look shark sharp! This is a sea creature watch to maybe love or fear. Or both!” It is an interesting and polarizing concept that once again borrows from natural textures and aesthetics.
Have you been waiting for a new Rolex Sea-Dweller cheap replica watch? Among a series of new models, Rolex has announced a new version of their famed professional diving watch, the Rolex Sea-Dweller. Carrying the new reference 116600, the 2014 Rolex Sea-Dweller sticks very close to the look and feel of past iterations of this historic diver with very close ties to the Rolex Sea-Dweller 16600 which was discontinued in 2008. The Rolex Sea-Dweller was originally launched in 1967 as a response to the expanding world of saturation diving. Thanks to input from the US Navy (via the SEALAB II program) and French Comex divers, Rolex designed a watch that was capable of withstanding extreme pressure and expelling the helium gas that can seep into the case during a saturation dive.

An excellent example of what people mean when they say “tool watch,” the Rolex Sea-Dweller is is the stuff of dive watch legend, and Rolex stainless steel case replica watches didn’t mess with the established formula for this updated version. Still sporting a 40mm case in 904L steel, a date display with no magnifier and 4000 ft (1220 M) of water resistance, the 116600 keeps up with the modern line-up thanks to the inclusion of a Cerachrom bezel and a Gildelock clasp with a 26mm diving extension on the bracelet.

In many ways the new Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Ref. 116600 is similar to the Rolex Submariner diving fake watches, but after a few months working out at the gym to bulk up. The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 Ref. 116600 case is water resistant to 1220 meters versus the 300 meters of the Submariner, and sports a thicker case and sapphire crystal. While most people who dive won’t really need that extra water resistance, Rolex like to make its diving watches suitable for the most extreme conditions. Having said that, from a purely aesthetic standpoint a great benefit of the Rolex Sea-Dweller over the Rolex Submariner Date, is that you get to have the inclusion of a date window, without having the sapphire crystal magnifier lens on the crystal.
