Rolex first set water resistance records over 60 years ago, sending its Rolex Deep Sea Special 35,814 feet to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Now, they just blew that away with the Deepsea Challenge, an all-titanium watch built to handle water pressure extremes.
Rated waterproof up to 36,090 feet (200+ feet deeper than the Deep Sea Special), it’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship and luxury, with a 50mm case, 9.5mm sapphire crystal, the unique Ringlock system that makes these deep sea watches so sturdy. But given that it’s made entirely out of titanium, it weighs just 251 grams—40% lighter than had it been made of steel. It’s a timepiece well worth adding as an investment to your luxury watch collection.
