Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000

Recommended Posts


         Have you ever been waiting for a new Rolex Sea-Dweller? Recently Rolex launched a new series of new watches, there are well-known professional diving watch Sea-Dweller to the new version. The new model is 116600, the 2014 Sea-Dweller-style appearance is very close to the old Sea-Dweller to make 16600 (which cut off in 2008). The Sea-Dweller-style watch was first introduced in 1967, was designed to meet the needs of saturated diving and reSea-Dwellerrch and development. As a result of the active participation of the US Navy (through the Sea-DwellerLAB II program) and the Comex diver of France, Rolex designed this watch that could withstand extreme pressure in a saturated dive and had a helium valve.

        As a 'tool watch' model, Rolex Sea-Dweller has become a legend of the diving watch, this new course will not break the existing paradigm of success. 116600 case is still 40mm size, 904L stainless steel, no magnifying glass date display, 4000 feet waterproof (1220 M), the improvement lies in the CERACHROM bezel and Gildelock clasp (can extend the length of 26 mm bracelet).

        In many ways, the new Rolex Sea-Dweller makes the type 4000 similar to the Rolex Shui Gui. Sea-Dweller to make water-resistant 1220 meters, compared to 300 meters waterproof water ghost, with thick case and table mirror. While most people who do not really dive so deep, but Rolex always builds its own dive table for the most extreme conditions. Having said that, from the point of view of pure aesthetic, the Rolex Sea-Dweller type has a great advantage over the Rolex's submerged calendar, that is, you can have a magnifying glass's calendar window.

        Sea-Dweller made 4000 watch used by the movement, is the same as the 116610 Submariner calendar (water ghost) the same Rolex 3135 movement. This movement has 48 hours of power reserve, with Parachrom gossamer and certified by COSC. Sea-Dweller-type with extreme waterproof performance, the main source lies in its case and sapphire crystal than the water ghost thick The Sea-Dweller-style waterproofing ability is just between the 1000-foot-depth and deep-Sea-Dweller (DeepSea-Dweller) de12800 feet deep, just to make up the gap between the two areas, suitable for a certain part of the crowd.

        Technically speaking, helium valve (HEV) is a landmark feature of the Sea-Dweller, still in the case of 9 o'clock position to find it. Tiny helium molecules in the process of saturated diving will penetrate the watch, the divers floating process will expand the helium caused by increased pressure inside the table may damage the watch. The helium valve (HEV) expels the expansion gas from the housing, thereby protecting the watch from damage to the overall water resistance. Rolex once again guaranteed that this beautiful luxury can accompany you to travel across the Sea-Dweller to catch turtle.

Adjustable insurance buckle strap

       The Oyster strap is equipped with an oyster-type buckle that prevents the buckle from opening unexpectedly, as well as a double stretch system, even wearing a diving suit with a thickness of 7 mm. Oyster-style folding chain extension can extend the strap extension of 26 mm, Rolex Glidelock buckle can be the band to each step 2 mm gradually extended, up to about 20 mm, this fine-tuning function is quite convenient There will not be more than a loose, less a tight feeling. Neither need to use other tools to assist.
