THE ROLEX SEA-DWELLER
A MARRIAGE OF GOLD AND OYSTERSTEEL
Rolex played a pioneering role in the development of special ceramics for creating monobloc bezels and monobloc bezel inserts. Not only are these new materials extremely corrosion-resistant and virtually scratchproof, their colours are also of a rare intensity and unaffected by ultraviolet rays.
On the new version of the Sea-Dweller, the unidirectional rotatable bezel is fitted with a 60-minute graduated cerachrom insert in black ceramic that allows divers to safely monitor their dive and decompression times. The moulded, recessed graduations and numerals are coated with yellow gold via PVD (physical vapour deposition). the bezel’s knurled edge offers excellent grip, to comfortably set dive time even when wearing gloves.
