ROLEX Deepsea Dweller – GPGuide “Limited 01/01” Edition

This Rolex Deepsea Dweller is a “Limited 01/01” edition, made specifically for GPGuide !

The Rolex Deepsea is water resistant to a depth of 3,900 metres (12,800 feet) and built to meet the exacting demands of professional divers. This robust, precise and reliable Professional model unveiled in 2008 illustrates Rolex’s mastery of waterproofness, acquired over decades of real-life experience stretching back to the heyday of underwater exploration. It is steeped in the pioneering spirit that led Rolex to invent the Oyster and develop, in the 1950s and 1960s, divers’ watches like the Submariner and the Sea-Dweller. The Rolex Deepsea owes its name to the Deep Sea Special, the experimental Rolex watch that in 1960 successfully travelled to the deepest point in the oceans, a depth of 10,916 metros.

Custom “DLC” Coating

Diamond-like carbon, or DLC, is amorphous carbon plasma – a material that exhibits astounding properties that for years have been benefitting a variety of industries including aerospace, military, medical and automotive- industries that constantly demand new heights of material innovation.

Possessing the most desirable physical characteristics of diamond – hardness, slickness and durability – and with a sleek beauty, an exquisite finish ranging from charcoal grey to jet black, DLC can be regarded as diamond without its crystalline structure. As it is applied in plasma form, it can be used to coat and enhance virtually any metal, providing a unique and flawless finish of the highest standard.
