About the Rolex Sea-Dweller

The Rolex Sea Dweller & Deepsea is at the top of most Rolex fan's "must have" list. Known for it's large case, classic look and deep sea diving capabilities, the pre-owned Rolex Sea-Dweller has taken the luxury watch industry by storm. With ceramic bezels and luminous markers, some are calling the new Rolex Sea-Dweller one of the most innovative watches on the market.

Frequently Asked Rolex Sea-Dweller Questions:

  1. Why Does Rolex Have a Sea-Dweller?

    1. Rolex created the Sea-Dweller to meet the new challenges of deep-sea exploration in the 1960s. While their Submariner was sufficiently water-resistant, the unique conditions of saturation diving would force tiny helium molecules past the seals of divers' watches, and the Rolex Sea-Dweller was designed with a patented helium gas escape valve, which allows trapped helium molecules to safely exit the watch.

  2. How much Does A Rolex Sea-Dweller Cost?

    1. Retail prices for the most recent version of the Rolex Sea-Dweller start out at $11,300 for the stainless steel reference 126600. Prices increase from there for the Deepsea and two-tone steel and gold models. However, due to overwhelming demand and a relatively fixed supply, many Sea-Dweller watches sell for more than their original retail prices on the secondary market.

  3. Which Is Better Sea-Dweller or Submariner?

    1. Neither the Rolex Sea-Dweller nor the Submariner can be said to be “better” than the other. The Sea-Dweller has a higher water-resistance rating than the Submariner and also has a helium-escape valve; however, its larger size makes it slightly less versatile in daily life. While the Sea-Dweller and Submariner are both Rolex dive watches, they were designed for slightly different purposes and each comes with its own list of pros and cons.

  4. How Can You Tell if a Rolex Sea-Dweller is Real?

    1. Like other watches, there are a number of ways to tell whether or not a Rolex Sea-Dweller is real; however, what to look for when authenticating a Sea-Dweller will differ slightly from one reference to the next. Counterfeiters are getting better and better at copying Rolex’s designs each day, and sometimes the only way to confirm that a watch is real is by opening it up and inspecting it with high-powered magnification.
