Baselworld 2017: New Rolex Sea-Dweller 50th Anniversary with Red Writing. Live Pictures & Pricing.

What everyone was waiting for, a single red Sea-Dweller makes its appearance at Baselworld 2017. The Sea-Dweller ref. 126600 is revisited for its 50th anniversary in a bolder 43 mm case. Rolex is introducing the latest generation of its Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller, a legend among professional divers’ watches created 50 years ago in 1967. The new Sea-Dweller features a larger, 43 mm case and the new calibre 3235, at the forefront of watchmaking technology and employed for the first time in a Rolex Professional category watch. To enhance the reading of the date, it is equipped, also for the first time, with a Cyclops lens on the crystal at 3 o’clock. The dial bears the name Sea-Dweller in red, a reference to the first model. Like all Rolex watches, the new Sea-Dweller carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015 to ensure singular performance on the wrist.
