In 1960, Rolex accompanied the submersile bathyscaphe Trieste on the historic U.S. Navy dive to the Mariana Trench, reaching 35,800 feet onto the ocean floor. More than 50 years later Rolex is doing it again! Rolex has partnered with National Geographic to go back to the Mariana Trench for a second time. Check out the video here for more information on the expedition and this amazing watch!
The Rolex Deepsea Challenge is an experimental diving Oyster Perpetual certified waterproof up to 40,000 ft! This watch was entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex to resist the extreme pressure in the deepest reaches of the ocean. The Deepsea Challenge watch is the deepest diving watch in the world!
