Deepsea Challenge

The reaction to this watch reminds me of the reaction to the DeepSea when introduced in 2008. It was a love at first sight for a wearable watch, a masterpiece of engineering. I got the black one then, even run the NY marathon that year with the DSSD on my

Deepsea Challenge

I recently had the opportunity to handle the first titanium release from Rolex. Photos seen ahead of the visit had me curious, so the opportunity was most welcomed. First impression was a surprise at how wearable it felt. Not as a city dweller of course,

Deepsea Challenge Incoming and Some Thoughts [LONG] :-))))))))))))))))))))))

Hey guys, as I mentioned in my earlier threads, I liked this new release a LOT. I had a long-term appreciation for the crazy 1960 Deepsea Special, and the 2012 Deepsea Challenge, and used to think their coolness is just off the charts!! When Rolex announc

Another pictorial series of Rolex Sea Dweller 1665.

Not a double red, which is my absolute favorite when it comes to the Sea Dweller, but a nice one, with some great patina on the indices. Ok, the plexy is a bit scratched and the second hand misses some tritium, but nothing which cannot be solved, here. Be

All you guys concerned about the wearability of the Deepsea Challenge

I'll just say this ... If you can, try to get the watch sized and fitted for YOUR wrist and see for yourself before you reach any conclusion. Today we got 3.5 links removed from the bracelet, and it’s so, so comfortable, it was hard to give it back! My fr

Some pics of the new Deepsea Challenge

This is what I read in a rolexmagazine article ... " But while the Deepsea Challenge attached to the manipulator arm of Mr. Cameron’s submersible in 2012 was rated to an eye-popping 12,000m, I noticed the rating of the 2022 model had been reduced by 1,000

Some pics of the new Deepsea Challenge

A vast, vast majority of watches fit the real-world wearability criteria (basically, fitting under a shirt cuff and no lug overhang etc.). Then there's another category of watches that may not be as "real-world" in the above sense, but they are built for

Two beasts of the deep, but are they real world watches, or just curiosities?

... or passionate of the brand. I bought the Pam 341 re issue when I had a lucky chance of finding a NOS example five years ago. It is absolutely unweareable for my 7 inches wrist (well, I actually CAN wear it but looks ridiculous on my wrist, but sometim

Some pics of the new Deepsea Challenge

Got a chance to check out the new Deepsea Challenge! I was very interested in it as soon as it came out last week, because it has two main things I wanted in a Rolex diver: (1) matte black dial, (2) fully lumed no date dial like the legendary sub. The fac
