Baselworld 2017: Rolex introduces 50th Anniversary Sea-Dweller with a Cyclops Lens

Introduced in 1967, Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller has been one of the most iconic timepieces of the brand. On its 50th anniversary, Rolex is celebrating the momentous occasion by unveiling the latest generation of its Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller. The updated Sea-Dweller comes with a larger, 43 mm case and Rolex’s new calibre 3235 movement, as well as a Cyclops lens on the crystal at 3 o’clock to enhance the reading of the date. Equipped with a patented black Cerachrom bezel insert in a virtually scratch-proof and UV-protected ceramic case, the black dial features “Sea-Dweller” in red, a reference to the first model.
