Ceramic Bezel and Luminescent Display
The 60-minute graduated, unidirectional rotatable bezel of the Rolex Deepsea enables divers to precisely and safely monitor their dive and decompression times. It is equipped with a patented black Cerachrom bezel insert manufactured by Rolex in a virtually scratchproof ceramic whose colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays. The graduation is coated via PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) with a thin layer of platinum. The sleek black dial features large Chromalight hour markers and hands, filled with luminescent material that emits a long-lasting blue glow for excellent legibility in dark conditions.
The dial’s luminescent Chromalight display is an innovation that improved visibility in dark environments, an essential feature for divers. Hour markers in simple shapes – triangles, circles, rectangles – and broad hour and minute hands enable instant and reliable reading to prevent any risk of confusion underwater.
Rolex uses Oystersteel for its steel watch cases. Specially developed by the brand, Oystersteel belongs to the 904L steel family, alloys most commonly used in high-technology and in the aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential. Oystersteel is extremely resistant, offers an exceptional finish once polished and maintains its beauty even in the harshest environments.
All Rolex watches are assembled by hand with the utmost care to ensure exceptional quality. Such high standards naturally restrict Rolex production capacity and, at times, the demand for Rolex watches outpaces this capacity. Therefore, the availability of certain models may be limited. New Rolex watches are exclu-sively sold by Official Rolex Jewelers, who receive regular deliveries and independently manage the allocation and sales of watches to customers. La Campanina Capri is proud to be part of the worldwide network of Official Rolex Jewelers and can provide information on the availability of Rolex watches.
Symbols of the long-shared history between Rolex and deep-sea explorers, the Oyster Perpetual Rolex Deepsea and Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge models are ultra-resistant professional divers’ watches. They are waterproof to a depth of 3,900 metres (12,800 feet) for the Rolex Deepsea, launched in 2008, and 11,000 metres (36,090 feet) for the Deepsea Challenge, presented in 2022.
