To discover unknown territories. To confront the unexpected. The manufacturer has always been there for explorers. It offers them a new tool endowed with outstanding performance.
On March 26, 2012, film director James Cameron defied the abysmal depths of the Mariana Trench by attaching an impressive steel fake Rolex watches to an articulated arm positioned outside his submarine. The body-built watch braved the hellish pressure encountered at -10,908m, returning to the surface in perfect working order. Ten years later, the crowned manufacturer introduces the Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge whose technical specifications are inspired by this historic prototype. To ensure resistance down to a depth of 11,000 meters, the 50mm diameter case in RLX titanium is equipped with the Ringlock architecture. The case features a 9.5mm thick sapphire crystal, a nitrogen-enriched steel compression ring, and a titanium caseback secured by a screwed ring. The presence of a helium valve and a Triplock crown equipped with three sealing zones also contributes to the remarkable performance.
At the heart of this veritable strongbox beats the 3230 caliber. This self-winding movement incorporates the latest innovations such as the paramagnetic Parachrom balance spring. It offers a comfortable power reserve of approximately 70 hours. As with all of the manufacturer’s timepieces, this Superlative Chronometer-certified diving watch boasts a chronometric precision of -2/+2 seconds per day. Equally at home in the deepest depths, the Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge accompanies you on all your land adventures with its wristband machined from the same material as the case, finished with an Oysterlock buckle, and its Glidelock extension system.
