We make these videos so that our customers can easily choose the best watch for themselves in the comfort of their own home. We offer the lowest prices anywhere online, and if you want to know the price of a watch, simply click on the links on 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. All right, so today we're going to be reviewing something a little bit special. Today we're reviewing the Rolex Deepsea James Cameron D-Blue. This is the newly released- newly released updated model from the Baselworld 2018 show, reference number 126660. We'll be going over the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. All right, so let's go ahead and jump right into the dial. So for the dial for the James Cameron version, is a beautiful blue to black gradient dial, with the Deepsea name in green, and this is special because this watch was made to commemorate the Deepsea Challenger, in which James Cameron took his green submarine, which we have the green Deepsea name, into the Mariana Trench, with a specialized- specialized Deepsea version that Rolex made for him. So this is not the original- not the watch James Cameron originally took down. This is a version of it that they commemorated him with. So that dial, very beautiful dial, Deepsea name in green. We have the date at the three o'clock position. With no Cyclops lens on top of that crystal, as typical sports pieces have. The Cyclops isn't on top of that sapphire crystal for easy viewing of the date, and that's because for the Deepsea, this is a professional diver's watch. The size of the crystal in this case is 5.5 millimeters thick, so that thickness of the crystal already provides some magnification for that date to make it easier to view. We have the maxi-style dial, which is the circular hour markers with the index six and nine o'clock positions, and the triangular 12 is at twelve o'clock position. But as I mentioned this is the more updated model of this Deepsea. So what has changed that they- that they needed to give this watch a new reference number? Well, for one thing, one small change is at the six o'clock position, you'll see the Swiss Made at the very bottom. They have actually added the Rolex crown logo in between that Swiss Made. The other change is that for the minute and seconds hand, so these minute and seconds hand, they've actually extended it by a millimeter, so it matches the outer indices at the edge of the watch perfectly instead of being short a little bit from it. And the other change that they've done is that for the original gas escape valve, the ring lock system, they've changed the font of that to match the Deepsea font, so the font that they use for the Deepsea in the green, that's the font on that outer edge of that ring lock system. It used to be the font that they used on the superlative chronometer. As you see, the six o'clock position. They used to use this font, but now they use the Deepsea font. So those are the changes they've done to the dial of the watch. No noticeable changes to the front face of the watch. Besides that, one thing I forgot to mention, that this watch is luminous in the dark with the hour markers being a highly legible chromalight display with long-lasting blue luminescence for up to eight hours so divers have easier viewability if they go deep sea diving. The hour markers will glow, so they have a very easier time reading it in the dark. Moving on to the bezel now, the bezel is a beautiful unidirectional rotatable sixty-minute graduated scratch-resistant cerachrom insert in ceramic cerachrom being Rolex's fancy way of saying a ceramic bezel. The numerals and graduations are coated in a platinum for extra resistance and durability. Overall, very beautiful. The ceramic itself is already very scratch-resistant, and it keeps a sort of high-polish look that really adds to face of the watch. It brings a little more shine to it. The scale- the 60-minute scale starts from the peridot. Each thick indices is a five-minute increments, so five, fifteen, twenty-five, with Arabics at the every ten, so ten, twenty, thirty, forty. And that's to track elapsed time. As I mentioned, diver's watch. Divers would track how much time they have left in the oxygen tanks, which leads to the reason why it's a unidirectional bezel, unidirectional meaning one way. It only turns one way, as you see, I turn it to left. We can't turn in back the other way, and that's for safety precautions such as, like I said, if a diver's tracking elapsed time on their oxygen tank, you can track that elapsed time on how much you have left. So if you have twenty minutes left of oxygen, you can see the minute hand go over to the 20-minute mark. But if you were to accidentally bump it the other way, let's just say, so if you were to bump it the other way, it actually can't turn at the moment, then you could get a false reading, and that could be fatal. But if you're not a professional diver and you're wondering, well, what use does this have for me, well, you could still use to for everyday activities such as tracking how fast you run a mile or even checking how long a business meeting will take. We're gonna go ahead and move on to the case now. The case is a 44-millimeter case size, so if my index finger to my thumb here, that's 44 millimeters in diameter. The Deepsea is a very, very large watch, so that 44 millimeters in diameter is matched with the thickness of the case, which is 17.7 millimeters thick, one of Rolex's thickest watches, so this won't fit under your suit cuffs, shirt cuffs very nicely, but it will be bold, and it will stand out. And you can see, very nice high polish on the side of the case, with this little ring indentation on the side, and that's actually why this is a professional diver's watch. This is called the helium escape valve, so when divers go deep sea diving, they have to come to several points in the depressurization chamber as they come up from the water. That is depressurizes- depressurizes the chamber by using certain gasses, helium being one of them but also another mixture of gasses. But the helium can actually go into the watch and pop the crystal out just due to the pressure. The helium escape valve is a ingenious system in which the watch switches at certain bar pressure. The spring will activate and let that helium out so you leave the watch undamaged. Now, for one thing I want to mention about the case, is that with the update to the dial they actually updated the case. The lugs of the case are evenly slimmed down now, and that's actually because they've added a millimeter increment of thickness to the center link of the oyster bracelet. So they slimmed down one millimeter on each side of the lug, added one millimeter to each side of the center link of the bracelet. And that's to keep that overall uniform shape. You can see the tapering, and the case actually matches very nicely now and have a very overall good flow. We're gonna go ahead and move on to the crown before we move on to the bracelet first. So with the crown, we're looking at a trip lock triple water-proof system with a water resistance of 3,900 meters, or 12,800 feet, a testament to what luxury is. You can go to 12,800 feet with this watch, You'll probably never go down there during your lifetime. Maybe some of you will; maybe some of you won't. But it's just so you can boast that, yes, my watch can actually go down that far without any harm coming to it. But enough about that. Unwinding, the crown comes out counter-clockwise as shown into the standard position at which you can wind the watch. About 15, 20 winds is all you need to get this watch started once more with a total power reserve of 70 hours. When we get over to movement, I'll explain why. Crown in this position will allow you to adjust the day instantaneously as shown. As you can see, I just go clockwise. The day changes very quickly, very easily. Pulling ut the crown to the final position, keep your eye on the seconds hand, we'll stop that seconds hand and allow for precise time setting, such as to an atomic clock online. You can set it down to the exact seconds. For precise time setting, of course, adjust the hands however you like bidirectionally. Pressing the crown back in will start that second hand once more. And always make sure screw the crown nice and tight in against the case. You want it to be keeping that water resistance that we boast at 12,800 feet or 3,900 meters and also between the crown protectors so the crown can't get damaged. Moving on to the bracelet now, as I mentioned, the bracelet was updated in conjunction with the looks of the case. So we have a thicker metal link compared to the outer of the three-piece links. But a satin finish throughout, as this is a sport watch, a nice durable, satin finish and nice, clean look throughout. There's the clasp, a nice hand finish as well and the other side of the bracelet. You can see that tapering down from the lug to the back of the clasp, very beautiful. The clasp itself is a folding oyster safety lock, safety being this little hinge that sits on top of the folding oyster. Folding oyster opens up to reveal this nicely high-polished clasp and blade. This high-polished clasped blade has Rolex's name embossed on there very beautifully. One thing to mention about the Deepsea is this is a diver's watch, as I'm gonna keep reiterating to you. We have something called the glide lock extension link, which can be shown here. You can see the little rivets on the under side of the clasp that allows for two-millimeter increments for a total extension of 20 millimeters in total. And how that's used is you just simply just pull the bracelet out, 45-degree angle. At the back of the clasp, just pull that tab up. You can see the little riveted edges, the teeth there. And you just simply adjust inward or outward as so. But you'll also notice that while I'm doing that, you see this kind of weird links over here where it's nice and flat and look like they're stacked on top of each other. That's actually another extension called a foot clock extension link, which allows the divers to adjust for their wetsuits so you'd be able to open up, this actually has a sticker on it, so I won't be able to open up for you guys, but it opens up to adjust for the wetsuits that divers wear to give yourself a little more comfortability on the wrist. All right, let's go ahead and move on to the movement now. The movement is housed in this beautiful case back here that his Sea-Dweller, the water resistance, and the Deepsea name at the bottom, crown logo is at the six and twelve o'clock position. And it's overall very, very beautiful. The movement is Rolex's in-house made professional mechanical self-winding movement. And it's their caliber 3235 movement, which is an updated movement from the typical movement, which was a typical sports piece movement, which is the 3135, which is a tried and tested movement for over 10 years or even more than that. And that movement was tested for a very, very long time. But they've actually updated to now the caliber 3235. They've actually done away with the old style of testing and put in a new style of testing where they actually test the movement outside of the case and inside of the watch, as well, to keep within that Swiss specs of the -2/+2 seconds a day, so they do very, very strenuous testing for the movement to make sure it keeps within the Swiss specs, which earns the name of the superlative chronometer certification at the six o'clock position you see on the dial there. But it still has the same function as as center hour, minute, and seconds hand, so center, hour, minute, seconds hand. Instantaneous changing of the date. We're at the setting and stopping of the seconds hand, for precise time setting, I was showing you with the crown functions. The other update they've done to the movement, it still has the same type of oscillator, which is the paramagnetic blue parachrom hairspring which allows for additional resistance against magnetism. But they've updated the shock absorption system in this watch so you should use the initially standard KIF shock absorbers, but they have updated to their own in-house made shock absorbers called the high performance paraflex shock absorbers, which Rolex absorbs 50% more shocks than industry standard. The other thing that they updated is the escapement on this watch. They've actually been updating most of their watches with this type of escapement. You will notice that on the newer style Datejust, Sky Dwellers and such. The chronergy escapement which is the- it's optimized for energy- energy efficiency by skeletonization the escapement wheel, for reduced inertia to keep more precise time setting. Also making that skeletonized escapement wheel out of the nickel phosphorus which adds to the resistance against magnetism and paired with the paramagnum blue parachrom hairspring in total to keep that nice- that nice Swiss specs. The power reserve is upgraded because of that escapement addition, which allows this watch to have that power- as I've mentioned with the crown functions earlier, where it has the power reserve of 70 hours. Meaning that you can put this watch on Friday evening, pick it back up Monday afternoon and it will be keeping time just fine. And if you're wondering, what's 70 hours? Well 70 hours is a little bit larger- compared to the previous- the previous movement that they went through, that one was 48 hours so you have an additional 22 hour power- 22 hour power reserve on top of that now. So let me actually go ahead and stop talking about that. We're going to go ahead and put this watch on our wrist now. So go ahead and locate that safety folding oyster. Safety open, fully open, and fold that down. And then there we are, beautiful satin finish on the bracelet. You can see that nice tapering, absolute working gorgeously now that they updated the lugs in terms with the bracelet. As you can see, it still sits very, very high on the wrist so that 17.7 millimeters thickness really showing. And there's the watch on my wrist, absolutely beautiful gradient from the blue to the black. Very unique to this, only this style of Deep Sea, or any Rolex watch has this gradient dial. So something to keep an eye out for. Ceramic bezel is absolutely gorgeous as well. You can see, very reflective and very shiny.
