Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 Watch Marks 50th Anniversary Of The Sea-Dweller
the 2017 New Baselworld 43mm new Single Red Rolex Sea Dweller for 50 anniversary NOW with cyclops!..
What may seem like a few minor design changes here and there actually mean a lot of serious firsts with the new-for-2017 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary model reference 126600, making this replacement of the Sea-Dweller 4000 one of the more important releases of Baselworld 2017.
First and foremost, let’s begin with the tech specs, as with this new reference 126660, the Rolex Sea-Dweller has received five major updates: first, it has grown from 40mm to 43 millimeters wide, making for a very considerable difference between the Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary and the Submariner (which is 40mm). Second, it received a cyclops over the date, a first for a Rolex Sea-Dweller and as controversial an update as the growth in size.
The Rolex Sea Dweller Single Red 50th Anniversary 43mm watch is a combination of Rolex Sea Dweller 4000m + Rolex Deepsea 44mm+ Rolex Submariner watch. It will definitely be the top seller of 2017.
The new Rolex Sea-Dweller’s 904L Oyster bracelet is fitted with an Oysterlock safety clasp, Fliplock extension system for an added 26mm of reach along with the Rolex Glidelock system for 2mm-increment fine adjustments over a distance of 20mm. Typical Rolex Sea-Dweller feats such as the black Cerachrom bezel with PVD-applied platinum numerals, flat front sapphire crystal and 1,220m of water resistance enforced by a helium escape valve inside the left side of the case (see its components below) remain present.
From my personal 7 years Rolex watches seller experience, the old size Sea Dweller was not selling very well. People rather buy the Submariner, as those look have become much more iconic then the old size look alike Sea Dweller ref 116600. They’re now indeed looking to much the same. I could life with a bigger size of 43 mm diameter but not with the cyclops. The Sea Dweller never had a cyclops because it could not withstand the bigger pressure and loosen from the crystal. Maybe Rolex found a solution to this problem and integrated a cyclops inside the crystal?
But apparently selling Rolex has become more important then being historical correct thus the Rolex marketing department decided differently by adding the cyclops as most probably some study showed that the modern Rolex buyer wants the cyclops. Anyways, at least the Sea Dweller is single red again for it’s 60th anniversary!
When Rolex adds the 43 mm instead of the old 40 mm Sea Dweller you will see new diameters of 43 & 44 mm. Which will make the Sea Dweller different again then the Submariner.
It’s called the Ref 126600 and priced at $10.800 ask your dealer to reserve one for you!…
