Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600: our review

Every year at the end of March in the corridors of Baselworld, Rolex replica watches uk unleashes the enthusiasm of journalists and enthusiasts. The moment in which the shutters of the windows of his stand are slowly raised as a ritual for followers, a ritual in which all the hypotheses on the new collections made by the international press melt like snow in the sun and leave the word to the evidence.

It is in this ritual that the measure of expectation and expectations that the Genevan brand generates among the crowds is measured, a moment that happens only once a year for this brand.

The world's first watch with a helium escape valve

Last year indicated that half a century has passed since the genesis of the world's most famous underwater sports watch. Not the first professional diver to be marketed because that record belongs to the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, but certainly the most celebrated one.

It was 1967 when the Rolex Sea-Dweller, the faithful companion of Comex expeditions, appeared on the market for the first time and brought with it something new: it was the first wristwatch to mount a small round valve on the side of the case to be able to expel the helium that entered the case during the decompression phase of a saturation dive.

The Rolex Sea-Dweller was therefore not the first diving watch in history, but it paved the way for the modern concept of a professional instrument (and for great depths), introducing the first major innovation that many brands have subsequently adopted.

It therefore made school, just as Japanese divers did school in modern times who eliminated that valve.

A tribute to the first Sea-Dweller

The Rolex fake watches Sea–Dweller 126600 pays homage to the original model, with the Sea–Dweller writing printed in red on the dial, to the delight of collectors and lovers of the brand but, apart from this aesthetic and historical quirk, driven by an evident nostalgic marketing operation , what is the significance of the greatest Sea-Dweller in history?
