Soon, after the successful dive from James Cameron to 11 KM down deepest point on earth,
Rolex will announce the new, 45 mm Rolex DeepSea Challenger, with domed crystal, to the world.

Could it look like this? This week we will know...

Maybe like this ( with photos hoped original DeepSea Special crystal ) on side view of the steel model on the left, only 2mm bigger, in 45 mm...




The 43 mm 'normal' DeepSea already had the 'Domed' look...


That's probably why Luc..

Now officially

" Timepieces such as the Rolex Deep Sea and the state-of-the-art, experimental Rolex DEEPSEA CHALLENGE, carried by James Camerons submersible, are the product of nearly a century of finely tuned know-how and innovation. They attest to the pursuit of perfection and the finest engineering. Nonetheless, Rolexs affinity with the deep does not stop there. It extends to active and sustained sponsorship of renowned marine researchers and ocean exploration, supporting excellence in the advancement of human knowledge."

"In the same vein, James Camerons DEEPSEA CHALLENGE is taking us on a new journey, revealing the secrets held by the ocean floor for centuries and shedding light on the deepest frontier accessible to mankind."

Seems like Comex has to make Rolex a new pressure tank ( instead of 3900 M to 11.000 M ) to test them accordantly..

With all the Rolex marketing power that's on this project, I bet you this one will be for sale, for all of us, soon!
