From April 17, 2013 to May 20, 2013, Rolex held a unique deep-sea exploration themed exhibition in Shanghai, China, it is an unparalleled connection between Rolex and The world’s most cutting-edge deep-sea exploration. This exhibition tells the story of two record-breaking deep-sea expeditions in the Pacific Ocean, as well as the outstanding performance of two Rolex watches.
The Rolex Deepsea Challenge dives 10,898 meters (35,756 feet) below sea level, overcoming the technical challenges of deep-sea exploration and opening a new chapter in deep-sea exploration. The experimental watch is waterproof to a depth of 12,000 meters (39,370 feet) and is designed and built specifically for deep-sea adventures.
Cameron’s expedition is the only time humans have reached this depth since the deep-sea submarine Trieste first did so in 1960. More than 50 years ago, the Trieste, piloted by U.S. Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh and Swiss oceanographer Jacques Piccard, reached 10,916 meters (35,814 feet). The Rolex Experimental Deep Sea Special also took part in the dive, strapped to the outside of the submarine.
They are the only two Rolex watches in the world that have been able to dive to such depths, proving that Rolex remain remarkably waterproof even in the harshest environments known to man.
Rolex has been a loyal partner to deep-sea explorers for decades. Seaworld’s relationship with Rolex dates back to 1926. At that time, Rolex introduced the world’s first waterproof watch, the Rolex Oyster. From the Rolex Perpetual Submariner, a classic diving watch first introduced in 1953, to the Rolex Deepsea, which is waterproof to 3,900 meters (12,800 feet) in 2008, The Rolex has become a symbol of precision, reliability, innovation and water resistance.
