Nicknamed the"Rolex Deepsea James Cameron", the Rolex Deepsea D-Blue Dial (Reference 126660-0002) is a ode to James Cameron's historical solo dip in 2012 -- the Rolex Deepsea Challenge -- which required him to more than 11km deep into the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

This Rolex Deepsea D-Blue's exquisite two-colour gradient dial changes from blue to pitch-black, in honour of the journey of this filmmaker in the deepest of depths. The Oystersteel case features an Oystersteel bracelet with links, D-blue dial hands and indexes, and a unidirectional rotatable bezel.

The mechanical self-winding Calibre 3235 motion gives this watch a robust 70-hour power reserve. And its domed 5.5mm-thick scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and screw-down winding crown using a Triplock watertight system ensure that the watch has an impressive water-resistance of 3,900 metres.
