RARE WATCHES: VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA: PART 2: ROLEX DEEPSEA CHALLENGE
Last week, we had a rare hands-on session with the Rolex Deep Sea Special and talked about its groundbreaking and amazing story of the first manned dive into the bottom of the Mariana Trench in 1953. Today, we continue with the story. This time, Rolex repeated the feat with a watch which is much more wearable, and whose trickle down technology made improvements to the Rolex Deepsea Sea Dweller. The watch is the Rolex Deepsea Challenge. The dive was made in 2012, in a special submarine with legendary Canadian filmmaker legend James Cameron as pilot. This is the story.
