Rolex has collaborated with filmmaker James Cameron on the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Problem, a divers’ watch in RLX titanium assured to a depth of 11,000m.
The watch was impressed by an experimental piece that accompanied Cameron on his journey into the Mariana Trench on 26 March 2012, a ten,908m descent that noticed the watch connected to the manipulator arm of Cameron’s submarine

The brand new watch is able to surviving equally difficult environments with progressive and practical design parts. Surplus fuel can effortlessly escape from the watch because of a helium escape valve, whereas a Ringlock system – a patented design of the case structure – lets the watch face up to excessive stress. Crafted from RLX titanium, a grade-five titanium alloy celebrated for its distinctive robustness and lightness, the timepiece is each technically spectacular and comfy to put on.
Slimmed-down proportions make the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Problem appropriate for each day put on. A chic crystal silhouette lends the watch a neat kind, whereas extension programs on the bracelet imply the watch could be worn over a diving go well with as much as 7mm thick.
Engraving on the case again pays tribute to the 2 experimental dives that impressed the watch: the 1960 voyage of oceanographer Jacques Piccard and US Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh on the Trieste; and James Cameron’s solo 2012 journey.
Whereas each expeditions had been accompanied by experimental Rolex watches, this new piece hones the unique design, at 30 per cent lighter and able to withstanding the whole lot from open-water diving to submersible dives and hyperbaric chambers.
