Rolex Deepsea Challenge Part 2

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Fifty-two years ago Rolex made watchmaking history when it joined the bathyscaphe Trieste, crewed by Swiss oceanographer Jacques Piccard and U.S. Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh, as the Swiss-designed bathyscaphe descended to the then deepest-known point in the ocean.

On March 26th of this year, the iconic watch house of Rolex teamed up with James Cameron to visit the earth’s deepest and perhaps most alien realm, the Mariana Trench and this time to a depth 35,756 feet under water. It will be remembered in history as the Deepsea Challenge project.

The Rolex Deepsea Challenge wrist watch was mounted onto the robotic arm  of Cameron’s Deepsea Challenger submersible. The Deepsea Challenge watch has the same in-house made Rolex Caliber 3135 automatic COSC Chronometer movement as the Rolex Submariner Deepsea watch originally introduced in 2008, it is larger in most all ways and was especially created by Rolex for this project.

What was Mr. Cameron wearing on his wrist? Why a regular Rolex Deepsea watch of course!

The New Ladies Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Special Edition

Monday, May 2nd, 2011


Rolex presents the new Ladies Oyster Perpetual Datejust Special Edition

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Special Edition is more sensual and more dazzling than ever. This bold incarnation of a feminine classic, in its 34 mm 18 ct EVEROSE gold case, enriches a collection already offered in yellow and white gold.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Special Edition, with its smooth bezel set with 12 brilliants and its GOLDUST DREAM dials with delicate gold motifs on black or white mother-of-pearl, is the first 34 mm model produced in 18 ct EVEROSE gold. This new model is an addition to the DATEJUST SPECIAL EDITION collection, already offered in yellow and
white gold.

Seductive charm of EVEROSE gold

The 18 ct EVEROSE gold of the case, bracelet and bezel sets the tone from the outset: an exclusive Rolex alloy, captivating in its inherent lustre and nobility. A mixture of serenity and vitality, sobriety and audacity, it exerts an
irresistible power of seduction and gives the watch its strong personality. Around the bezel sparkle 12 brilliant-cut diamonds, elegantly showcased in 18 ct white gold settings. The effect is luminous, exquisite, enchanting.

Dream dials
Dazzlingly delicate, the GOLDUST DREAM dial is a subtle, refined marriage of white or black mother-of-pearl and gold dust. The mother-of-pearl is embellished with a new nature-inspired motif and an exquisite design in pink gold dust applied in a fine layer via a patented PVD process which preserves the mother-of-pearl’s natural structure while giving it a highly original metallic sheen. The slightest ray of light illuminates this magical dial with iridescent reflections that make the fine strata of the mother-of-pearl shimmer in a subtle play of light. Each of these dials, with a large gem-set numeral at 6 o’clock, is a unique, refined work of art, striking in its delicate splendour.

Distinction and precision
The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Special Edition stands out thanks to its gracious, curved lines, its feminine form and its new, elegant invisible clasp. It is also an Oyster with peerless precision and reliability, a waterproof
chronometer equipped with a PERPETUAL rotor self-winding mechanical movement. A trusted companion under all

The lady who wears this watch looks ahead, stepping confidently towards her future. She glances at her watch, living the present to the full, her sights already set on expanding horizons.
