2014 Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000

Along with a host of new models which includes the brand new ‘Pepsi Bezel’ GMT-Master II watch, Rolex has unveiled the new version of its professional diving watch, the Sea-Dweller, which comes with a new reference 116600. The latest iteration looks almost the same as its older versions, especially the Sea-Dweller 16600 which went out of production in 2008. The original Sea-Dweller watch was introduced back in 1967; it was designed with the help of the US Navy and French Comex divers, with its iconic helium escape valve enables it to withstand extreme pressure under water. The Sea-Dweller 4000 features the latest innovations by Rolex which includes a new Chromalight display for long-lasting luminescence, a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, and new Oysterlock safety clasp.

The 2014 Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 sports a 40mm case in 904L steel, a date display with no magnifier and 4000 ft (1220 M) of water resistance. It features the same Rolex 3135 movement that is found in the 116610 Submariner Date and has a power reserve of 48 hours. The pricing and its availability is yet to be confirmed officially, but we anticipate it’s going to be priced close to the $10,000 mark.
