Rolex Deepsea Challenge, Defy Limits with this All-titanium Record-breaker

What started in 2012 with a prototype that survived a dive into the Mariana Trench is now a reality with the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge reference 126067 in RLX Titanium, Rolex’s first-ever watch made entirely from grade 5 titanium with a record-breaking 11,000-meter (7 miles) water resistance.

The Rolex Deepsea Challenge has a diameter of 50mm and a thickness of 23mm and weighs 30% lighter than the original prototype. It features Rolex’s patented Ringlock system, helium escape valve, and a 9.5mm domed anti-reflective coated front sapphire crystal. The dial sports a matte “intense black” satin finish with 18k gold hand and hour markers and features Rolex’s Chromalight display.

The three-piece Oyster bracelet made from solid RLX Titanium links allows for 20mm of tool-free adjustment in 2mm increments with an Oysterlock folding safety clasp and a built-in Rolex Glidelock extension system. It is further enhanced with the 26mm Fliplock extension link.

Powering the Rolex Deepsea Challenge is the 4Hz Rolex Caliber 3230, a self-winding movement with an extended power reserve of around 70 hours. It has a Rolex overcoil hairspring, a large variable-inertia balance wheel, gold high-precision Microstella nuts, a traversing balance bridge, and “high-performance” Paraflex shock absorbers.The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge reference 126067 in RLX Titanium retails for $26,000.
