Rolex Deepsea
Take the Deepsea into the depths of the ocean!

The Rolex Deepsea is the update of the legendary Sea-Dweller series.

How to improve perfection? This is the exact question Rolex perfectly responded to in 2008 with the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea 116660, which was designed as an update to the Sea-Dweller. When the watch was presented at Baselworld 2008, it quickly became the star of the show and polarized the fan community. The ripple that the Deepsea caused was so great it even met with a media response outside the watch market. At that time, the Deepsea was by far the most water-resistant watch with 3,900 m (and a "reserve" of 1,000 m) produced in series. The region from 1,000 m to 4,000 m into which the Deepsea can reach is called Bathypelagial. While divers have to struggle with the complete absence of light and 400 times higher pressure, they also face temperatures that are around the freezing point.

This was not the first time Rolex had ventured into these depths. In 1960, a diver was able to dive down to 3,350 metres with the Rolex Deep-Sea Special. The start for the Sea-Dweller was the Rolex Comex (Ref. 5514), which is now traded second hand for around 50.000€. This watch was produced at the beginning of the 60s in cooperation with the French diving company Comex. At that time saturation diving had more or less established itself, as they searched for oil in the sea. During decompression, the watches could no longer withstand the pressure inside the case and burst the crystal from the watch. Proceeding from the Submariner, Rolex developed a watch with a helium outlet valve. This feature should be standard in the Sea-Dweller series since then and forms the basis for all other models of the series.

3 Good Reasons To Buy A Rolex Deepsea 116660 With Black Dial

  • Elegant but robust diver's watch without distracting gimmicks

  • With a water density of up to 4,000 m you will be pleased at any depth

  • The watch for nonconformists: with Deepsea you become an opinion leader

You can buy the Sea-Dweller Deepsea 116660 Black Dial pre-owned from 8.600 €.

If you are thinking about buying a Rolex Deepsea 116660 Black Dial, you should be well informed about its optical and technical features, which justify the price of a Rolex 116660 with a black second-hand dial for 8,600€. At the beginning there are the dimensions: with a case of 44 mm, a height of 18 mm and a weight of 220 g, the Deepsea comes with the massive charisma you'd expect from a functional watch. The glass does not feature the cyclops above the date display. Not that Rolex didn't want to, but it would still take a few years until the 50th anniversary of the series to make it technically happen.

Otherwise, it holds all the features you would expect from a Rolex diver's watch: Helium outlet valve, unidirectional rotating Cerachrom bezel with 60-minute graduation, screw-down triple lock crown and legibility thanks to Chromalight guarantee maximum functionality even under difficult conditions. Another new feature is the patented Ringlock system, which also separates the Deepsea from the Sea-Dweller and allows it to reach depths of up to 4,000 metres. The pressure is redistributed onto the 5 mm thick raised sapphire crystal, a steel compression inner ring and a 3 mm thick titanium bottom. Like the Submariner, the 3135 calibre beats inside in the updated version with a Parachrome spiral. The calibre has been in use since 1988 and stands out due to its robustness and versatility. From Submariner to Datejust and Sea-Dweller, it quickly established itself as a Rolex calibre for all purposes. Many will also be pleased that Rolex uses the Glidelock system for the bracelet, which is also used on the newer Submariner. As a result, the bracelet can be extended by up to 18 mm, which opens up new flexibility not only for diving but also in everyday life.

Price comparison: Rolex Deepsea 116660 vs. Rolex Sea-Dweller 116600

Pre-owned you can buy a certified used Sea-Dweller 116600 from already 10.560 €. The Deepsea has a RRP of 11.200 €, on the market for used watches you can find 116660 Black Dial models for 8.600 €. If you want to invest in one of the models, you should consider the difference of almost 2.000 €.
