Hey guys, this is Kevin from JazTime.com JazTime.com is an online store that buys, sells, trades authentic luxury watches. We make these videos so that our customers can easily choose the best watch for themselves in the comforts of their own home. We offer the lowest prices anywhere online and if you'd like to know the price, simply click on our links in the description below. If you enjoy our videos, we would greatly appreciate it, if you would buy a watch from Jaztime.com, once in a while. Alright, so today we are going to be reviewing the Rolex Deepsea. This is the newly updated Deepsea from the Baselworld Trove 2018. And this is the model number 126660. We're going to be going over the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet clasp, and we'll talk about the movement toward the end of the video. Alright, so for the dial we have the standard black dial. Of course, for the Deepsea, it's similar to the older, recently discontinued model where you can get the James Cameron edition which was a special edition that had a blue to black gradient dial and was to commemorate the Deepsea Challenge. However, this is just the standard, just regular plain Deepsea. So we have the beautiful black dial with the maxi style hour markers. Which are these circular hour markers with the index six, nine and triangular 12 o'clock position. 12 o'clock position hour marker. They're all illuminance meaning that the glow in the dark with a high legible chrome blue, long lasting blue Chromalight display. Meaning, it will glow in the dark for up to eight hours. And, that's of course, very useful as this is a divers watch, a professional divers watch. So, being underwater, being able to see those hour markers underwater will help. Of course, we have the standard, Mercedes hands for the hour. The hour hand, luminous as well. All the hour markers, minutes, seconds, and hands are all fashion 18 carat white gold, to prevent, any tarnishing. So, as I've mentioned this is an updated model. So, what exactly was updated? Well, for the face of the dial, there has been just very minor updates to it. So, if you look at the six o'clock position, you'll see this Swiss made in small text right underneath this six o'clock position index marker. And, specifically for that, they just added a little Rolex crown logo in between the Swiss made. It didn't use to have the little crown logo. The other adjustment that they've made is that the length of the minute and seconds hands have been adjusted for one millimeter length longer to match with the outer indices. And it will line up, more perfectly now. As you can see, the second's hand as it moves around, you can kind of see that it matches very nicely with each little indices as it passes through. Before it was a little bit shorter and didn't quite match. The last update they've done to the face of the dial is that for the original gas escape value, the ring lock system, it's part of the Deepsea casing. They've actually updated the text on it, or rather the font to match the Deepsea Sea-Dweller font. It used to be this, sort of, smaller font like the superlative chronometer. It used to be like that but they've updated to the Sea-Dweller Deepsea name font. Well, besides that, I forgot to mention they would know, of course, at the three o'clock position for the sapphire crystal. It's actually a thicker sapphire crystal. It's a 5.5 millimeter thick sapphire crystal that's scratch resistant. Specifically, there's no cyclops on top of that sapphire crystal as with typical sports pieces, mainly because of that thickness of the sapphire crystal already magnifies the data a bit. So, let's go ahead and move on to the bezel now. So the bezel is a unidirectional, rotatable, 60 minute graduated, scratch resistant, Cerachrome insert and ceramic with numerals. The numerals and indices coated in a platinum. Cerachrome being a fancy way of Rolex saying it's a ceramic bezel watch. So beautiful black ceramic bezel. It's highly scratch resistant and as you can see it's very shiny and reflective. Specifically, the unidirectional portion of the bezel means it only changes one direction. As you can see I can't change it back to the right. I can just simply change it counterclockwise to the left. And that's also used for diving, as well. For divers they can track their oxygen tank levels. So they usually just move the dot to the minute hand and you can track the elapsed time so you can see, oh 10 minutes or 20 minutes have passed. Each little fat indices is five minute increments of 5, 15, 25. But even if you're not a professional diver and you still are looking to use the Deepsea, you can just use it for everyday activities, like running a mile. You can track how fast you run a mile or even just playing along and seeing how long a business meeting is taking. Let's go ahead and move on to the case now. So for the case, we got a 44 millimeter case size. So, from my index finger to my thumb, here That's 44 millimeters in diameter. The case is made out of 904L steel, which is Rolex in house made steel which has an additional corrosion resistance and a nicer shine to it, overall. And it's also nicely sand finishes. As you can see the nice sand finish. Nice brush steel look overall. There's actually been an update to this portion of the case as well. So the case lugs, the lugs are these little two parts that squeeze in that bracelet there. Top and bottom. I've actually adjusted the lugs to be a little bit smaller. Specifically, one millimeter smaller on each side so they can adjust the initial links and the following links for the middle of the oyster bracelet to be one millimeter wider. So overall, if I pull this back a little more, you can see that the tape ring looks much, much nicer, much cleaner now and the watch, even though it's a 44 and very large. You can see it kind of flow into the bracelet much more nicely now. But besides that, we still have the Deepsea size. The side profile, here it is. Very large, very large profile. Probably the largest in the Rolex line, being at 17.7 millimeters thick. This won't fit under your suit cuffs or dress cuffs. This will be a more bold look on your wrist and you'll definitely will be seeing that. Alright, let me show you the other side of the case, as well. You can see, a nice high polish, even on the crown protector as well. Rolex crown logo on the crown itself. The crown is a screwed on Triplock triple waterproofness system, that simply unwinds counterclockwise, as shown. This is the center position of the crown, in which you can wind your watch. 15 to 20 winds is all you need to get the watch started once more. Simply pulling out the crown to the next position will allow you to adjust the days instantaneously. Keep your eye on the three o'clock position. You can see how easy it is to change the date. And then pulling the crown out to the final position will stop the second's hand. You can see the second's hand there. And stop. And that allows for precise time setting, such as to an atomic clock online, can set it down to the exact second for precise time setting. And of course, you can set the time bidirectionally as well. Pressing the crown back in will start that second's hand once more. And always make sure to screw the crown, nice and tight against the case, as you want to keep the crown nice and protected between the crown protector and for the water resistance of the watch being a Deepsea. The most professional divers watch we're looking at the water resistance of 3,900 or 300, um apologize, 3,900 meters or 12,800 feet of water resistance. One thing I forgot to mention is the helium escape valve. So, you can see how it says the original gas escape valve is actually located here. With this little circle indice on the side of the case. And basically, what that is, as divers go deep sea diving, they have to come back up and in a depressurization chamber. And that chamber has a mixture of gasses, specially the helium, that can actually go into the case of a watch and pop the crystal out due to the pressure built up in the watch. When the helium escape valve reaches a certain bar pressure, this actually releases a helium gas out, therefore protecting the watch from having the crystal damaged by having it popped out from the pressure. Alright, so moving on. Going to move onto the bracelet now. Once again, very beautiful oyster style bracelet. Nice hand finish throughout. You can see that the middle links are a little bit larger than the outer links now. That is just to make the whole, overall flow from the case to the bracelet much nicer. You can see from the clasp the Oysterlock. Nice hand finished throughout and the other side of the bracelet as well. Nice hand finished. Great tapering from the first three links for a nicer fit and overall look on the wrist. Moving on to the clasp, like I said there's a safety folding Oysterlock. That's the safety, this little hinge here that sits on top of the folding oyster that opens up as so. Has the nice Rolex name embasant to the high polished clasp plate there. For the clasp itself, there's actually a few new features for the clasp. For underneath the clasp, we have the Glidelock extension system. You can see there's little rivets underneath the clasp and that actually allows for two millimeter increment adjustments for up to a total increment adjustment of 20 millimeters. That can be accessed, by simply, pulling the bracelet out at a 45 degree angle and at the top of the clasp you just pull on this little middle portion. You can see the little riveted edges pulled off and you'll be able to adjust forward or inward. Okay, and the additional feature is that you can see this flat links here. This is actually for the diver's portion. So if you we're putting on a wetsuit, you can actually just flip off these links to adjust for a little bit more length for the wetsuit adjustment. So, pretty nice overall. We wouldn't have to take this watch to a jeweler to have them adjust the links just to have the watch fit on your wrist perfectly. You can just do all of those micro adjustments and it'll fit great. Standard bracelet size is usually seven and a half inches for Rolex watches for male sports pieces. Alright, so let's go ahead and move on to the case now, or rather the movement. So here's the case back. A very beautiful case back with a Sea-Dweller Deepsea name on it, the Rolex crown logo, and the water resistance, as I stated before 12,800 feet or 3,900 meters. The movement has been updated, as well, from the previous model. The previous model used to run the 3135 movement which was a tried and tested movement by Rolex for beyond 10 years. They've tested that movement but now they've finally decided to update it into the 3235 movement which is still a self winding movement, in house made by Rolex. It has the Swiss specs of the -2/+2 seconds a day. That's where it gets its superlative chronometer officially certified at the six o'clock position on the front of the dial. But they've actually done the extensive testing beyond what they've done for the 3135. Before on the 3135 they used to just test the movement outside of the casing of the watch to get it within those Swiss specs of the -2/+2 seconds a day. But now they've actually tested it outside and also inside the watch, as well, so they put the movement in the watch and made sure that the movement in the watch can reach those Swiss specs of the -2/+2 seconds a day. So, absolutely wonderful tune up from the previous predecessor but also adding a few other things as well. Before, we used to have the industry shock absorbers which were the Kif shock absorbers. Now, we have Rolex's in house made high performance paraflex shock absorbers which absorb up to 50% more shocks than the previous shock absorber that I mentioned. The escapement has been changed to the escapement, is now a chronergy. Escapement, which is a Rolex's in house made escapement. They're trying to, in house make everything now. The escapement is skeletonized to prevent inertia. So it keeps the precise time setting but also made out of a nickel-phosphorus that pairs with the previous oscillator which was a pair of magnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and adds to the resistance against magnetism for the watch as magnetism can severely change precision of the watch of time keeping. But, because it added that escapement we now have a larger power reserve for the watch. The previous movement, the 3135, had a power reserve of 48 hours. But, now we have a power reserve of 70 hours. Meaning, you can put this watch down Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday afternoon and it will be keeping time just fine. Besides that, the movement is still the same internally, in terms of functions. We still have the instantaneous changing of the days, stopping the seconds hand, and just general functions of the seconds, minute, and hour hand as well. Alright, let me go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist now. So folding oyster, safety down. As you can see, large clasp. Beautiful tapering of that oyster bracelet. Here's the front facing of the watch. Absolutely beautiful watch just very standard Rolex sports pieces but very bold. Also, you can feel the weight of that Deepsea on your wrist. You can see that profile as I move it over to the side as well. You can see it sits very high off the wrist, as well. But overall very beautiful watch.
