The (original) Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller is back

The Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 fulfills two objectives: it fills a gap in the range and relaunches a legend, an Oyster that has historical significance for Rolex replica watches and for sports watchmaking. After all, Basel 2014 will be remembered as the year of revivals. In Basel, the Geneva-based company bridged the gap between the current Submariner and the Sea-Dweller DeepSea and re-proposed the Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000, a model it had eliminated in 2008 in favor of the super diver, an exceptional watch, but not suitable perhaps to all tastes and, above all, to all wrists.

On this occasion, Rolex has not only re-proposed a more professional Submariner (the Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 is waterproof up to 1220m) but has taken inspiration from the original 1967 model. Just look at its curved glass which is reminiscent of the original model. Because the one from 1967 inaugurated the introduction of the helium escape valve during the decompression phase, an innovation for which Rolex holds the patent.

If you want to be picky, the only thing missing from the fake rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 is the red writing at 6 o'clock. Because, for the rest, it is a compendium of the consolidated technologies of the Geneva house which also represent its pillars: 40mm case in 904L steel, the entirely in-house caliber 3135 certified chronometer by the COSC, the Cerachrom disc on the bezel, the Triplock winding crown, just to name a few.
