The Rolex Deepsea was designed for extreme underwater exploration. Architectural complex case into three parts and enables Ringlock system to resist it the colossal pressure at depths up to 3,900 meters (12,000 feet). Rolex Deepsea has. A bezel inlaid with a substantially disc-shaped scratch Cerachrom black background and titanium Rolex DEEPSEA is equipped with a unique bracelet designed with a dual extension for a perfect fit on any wetsuit.
Architecture was developed complex case into three parts and patented by Rolex Deepsea. Called Ringlock system, the design is a lesson in technical superiority. To begin, nitrogen alloyed stainless steel is virtually indestructible inside. The backbone of the clock can withstand the pressure that would crush a submarine. Amazingly provide reinforcement on the outside of the clock, a thickness of 5 mm, domed sapphire crystal protects the face. Aluminum oxide of high purity that can withstand three tons of pressure to 3,900 m (12,800 feet). Finally, so that a substantial degree-5 joints caseback titanium alloy clock, it practically impenetrable.
To go before returning to the outside, a professional diver returns to the surface after a deep dive must spend time in a decompression chamber, where you can breathe a gas mixture with helium.
Helium leaks in the chamber, a very light, volatile gas anywhere in the clock. Clock escapes at a rate slower than the reduction of the pressure in the chamber, so that the helium pressure in the clock so?great that irreparable damage is caught occur.
After studying these parameters Rolex engineers created with a helium valve spring: it opens when the pressure difference between the inside and the outside of the clock reaches 3-5 bar, which allows helium escape and protect the clock.
The case of architecture, the Rolex Deepsea can withstand enormous pressure of the water at great depths on a striking feature of the rear of the base. Of a titanium alloy held against the pressure ring imperceptible superior performance of this flexibility harder alloy highly resistant so that the pressure of the water itself to hermetically seal the case, the depth reached detail requiring components more closely together. Harder materials, but not as flexible as ceramics are cracking under the pressure.
To seal the Rolex Deepsea extreme depth of 3,900 meters (12,800 feet), Rolex has installed a specially designed test apparatus. High performance, hyperbaric stainless steel container which is molded in one piece and a weight of 1.3 tonnes, simulates the pressure to 4875 meters (16,000 feet) below the sea level, about 25% greater than the depth, the clock on the dial of the . At this depth, the pressure on the glass and the base of the box is equal to a force of 4.5 tons. This high-tech equipment was developed and by Comex (Compagnie Maritime d'Expertise), a renowned specialist in engineering and technology underwater hyperbaric worked with Rolex for several decades, has produced.
To push the limits of visibility in dark environments, the Rolex Deepsea is a blue glow from three key features of the clock: the score to the graduated bezel, indexes and online hours, minutes and zero seconds.
Built in steel 904L High quality chrome expansion band corrosion resistant double Rolex Deepsea was designed for a life under water. Its patented Rolex divers Glidelock expands the closure tape 18 mm in steps of 1.8 mm, while the exact extension Fliplock links allow the band can be adjusted by an additional 26 mm. This extension provides a remarkable safe and comfortable in most suits for diving.
In 1950, as a rigorous experimental testing of a clock Rolex "Deep Sea Special". In August 1953, the Special Rapporteur of the deep sea up to 1080 meters (about 3543 feet) and 3,150 meters (about 10,334 feet) this year, eventually reaching 3700 meters (approx. 12,138 feet) in 1956. In 1960, with the lessons learned in the implementation of the?first two models, the third Deep Sea Special was designed to withstand the extreme conditions. This is the clock, the bathyscaphe Trieste bound was found in perfect condition after reaching the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench at 10,916 meters (35,813 feet) below the surface of the sea
In 1960, the U.S. Navy experimental bathyscaphe, the Trieste successfully lowered into the Mariana Trench, the deepest known depression on the surface of the earth. With Lieutenant Don Walsh (USN) on the head, accompanied by Jacques Piccard, the Trieste has something incredibly so that always reaches the bar for deepwater exploration increased. Originating from 10,916 meters (37,800 feet), the bathyscaphe was in perfect condition - like the Rolex Deep Sea Special experimental clock is set during the historic dive. Power, cement place in history would Rolex most robust as the creator of the show and most reliable of all.
What we now call a professional diver has gained momentum in the 1960s. There were many difficulties to overcome: decompression sickness, length of immersion, the water temperature and the need for long decompression.
COMEX (Compagnie Maritime d'Expertise), a pioneer in this field and its prestigious reputation in large part to the extraordinary personality of its founder, Henri-Germain played Delauze. This engineer, in the south of France, born in 1929, is a visionary driven by an entrepreneurial spirit.
Seagoing experience as part of their work in high-pressure environments and breathing mixtures COMEX since the late 1980s, expanded to include other hostile environments such as outer space.
DeepSea under the Pole by Rolex Shipping is a pioneering and innovative human adventure that combines ski trekking and scuba diving in one of the harshest climates on earth, the North Pole. The members of the expedition were to Rolex Oyster Perpetual DEEPSEA equipped designed for divers. The goal was this fantastic experience of more than 50 dives under the Polo to take make surprising and exciting photos as many as possible and collect a lot of data on snow and ice measurements wildlife.
