Hey guys, this is Kevin from, and today I'll be reviewing the brand new, newly released at Basel World 2017, the Rolex 50th anniversary Sea-Dweller. The model, the reference number for this watch is 126600. We'll being going over the price, the dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp, and we'll take about the movement towards the end of the video. Alright, so as of September 2017, you can get this watch at a authorized Rolex retailer for $11,350. Of course, as this watch is new, and is a hot piece right now, there will be a wait list for it. So our pricing as of market value demands is currently $13,600 as of September 2017. Alright, so let's go ahead and move on to the dial now. So the dial is just your very basic Sea-Dweller dial. We have the maxi hour markers, which is these circular hour markers with the index at the six, nine, and the triangular 12 position. They're fashioned in 18 carat white gold to prevent any tarnishing, and the white. It has a luminescence, it's luminescence filled. So it has a Chromalight with long-lasting blue luminescence. One main thing to note, actually two main things to note, the first one being the red text at the bottom, we have the Sea-Dweller name in red, that is the 50th anniversary addition. They've added that single line of red text to the Sea-Dweller name as a sort of homage to the previous model which was the 1665, the original models, which were introduced in 1967. A little quirk about that is that there's, it's interesting that they've done a one single line red text where as the mainly discussed vintage models of the Sea-Dweller is a double red line text that would say Sea-Dweller slash Submariner slash 2000. So it's interesting that they chose that model, the single red line text because there are very very few examples of the single line red text of that reference number of that time. And by very very few, I mean there's only about six or so confirmed cases of a single red line text Sea-Dweller name. That's why it's interesting that they've chose the single red line text instead of the double red line text that more people talk about. However, the red text itself was actually removed in the 1970s, so it's pretty cool that they've brought that back. Another thing to note is that the Sea-Dweller on the sapphire crystal we have a cyclops lens now. As previous models such as the Sea-Dweller 4000 or even the Deep Sea models it was, I won't say it was impossible but it was hard for them to put a cyclops lens on that sapphire crystal mainly because the crystal was too thick and too dome, so it didn't allow that cyclops lens to actually be of use. But now they actually got over that technological hump that they actually added that cyclops lens on that sapphire crystal, and now we have that nice magnification and easier viewing of that date. Alright, so moving on to the bezel now. The bezel is a uni-directional rotator with 60 minute graduated scratch resistant, which Rolex calls the Cerachrom, which is a ceramic bezel, which is the ceramic that they use, rather the name for it. The numerals and the graduations are platinum coated as well. One thing to mention about the ceramic bezel is that, I did mention is scratch resistant, is incredibly scratch resistant. And the black on the on the ceramic itself, that will last throughout its lifetime, so that black will never fade. So that's nice to know. Moving on the the case. We're looking at an updated case size of 43 millimeters, up from the previous model which was 40 millimeters. So from my index finger to my thumb here we have that 43 millimeter case. One thing to mention is that the hour markers are a little bit larger to have nice proportions to that up-sizing of the case. The case itself is made out of Rolex's 904L steel, which is an in-house made steel. It has additional corrosion resistance, and also brings out a very nice shine when you high polish as you can see from the side here of the case. See that very nice high polish, travels very nicely, patterns very nicely with the bracelet. In the center of the casing we do see this little circular indentation here, and that's what's called the helium escape valve. Basically, when the Sea-Dweller was first, rather not the Sea-Dweller itself, but original Rolex watches and Tudors and such, they tested the watches in depressurization chambers, and they noticed that these sapphire crystals would pop out after a certain point because there would be so much pressure from the helium gases in the depressurization chamber that would get into the watch itself. The gas, the helium gas, would not escape out of the watch quickly enough, so it would build up that pressure and pop that crystal out. So they came up with this helium escape valve which at a certain pressure point will actually open up and allow the helium to escape the watch, therefore not, you know, of course as the name states, depressurizes the watch itself as well so that sapphire crystal does not pop out. So, additionally on the other side of the case we have that nice high polish again. Travels very nicely with the bracelet. We have the Rolex Crown logo on the crown. As we move on to the crown now, the crown is a screw down trip lock, triple water proofing system. It unscrews counter clockwise as shown. And in this first standard position, you can actually wind the watch about 15 to 20 times from a dead stop is all you need to get the watch going. A simple tug of that same crown will allow you to change the date instantaneously as shown. And an additional and final tug of the watch will bring you to the final position in which you can set the hands bi-directionally as shown. One thing to mention is that second hand will stop allowing for precise time settings such as through an atomic clock online. You can set it down to the exact seconds. Of course, pushing your crown back in will start that seconds hand once more. Make sure you screw the crown nice and tight against the case so it keeps this watch water resistant for up to 1,220 meters or 4,000 feet. Alright, moving on to the bracelet now. So the bracelet, very beautiful oyster bracelet. Has the brush steel or sand finish throughout all the links, on the clasp as well. No high polish on the center pieces at all, just all sand finish, brush steel, as it is a diver's watch, a sports watch. So very nice. The clasp is just a folding oyster clasp as shown. You pop off that little safety which is this hinge. Pop open that folding oyster and there we are. We have the clasp with the Rolex name embossed on that high polish clasp plate. And one thing to mention about the clasp is that it allows for additional adjustment. So specifically it allows for a total of 46 millimeters of adjustment. And I'll go ahead and show you the first 20 millimeters. So you'll have to pull the bracelet out at a 45 degree angle. See, pops off very easily. See these little rivets, allows for two millimeters of adjustment up to 20 millimeters, so all the way out. This is how it would look with that 20 millimeters all the way out. And the additional 26 millimeters comes from the additional extension which is a flip lock extension. As shown, you see this little flat piece that came out. Just go ahead, again, 45 degree angle upwards, and that adds additional 26 millimeters with these three additional flat links. And the reason for that is for because this is a divers watch, this is made for the addition of fitting these watches on to wetsuits very quickly, very easily. But I mean for everyday use, it's actually very nice as well as you can adjust on the fly if your wrist gets too hot or swells up, you can adjust for a little more comfortability, and vice versa, if it's too cold you don't want your watch shaking around everywhere on your wrist, you can adjust for that as well. As long as giving it as a gift to a friend or maybe to your son, you can hand this watch over to him, and you can adjust it on the fly as well to their wrist as well. So very nice feature to have. No complaints here. Moving on to the movement now. So this movement is housed in this oyster case backing. We have the Sea-Dweller name with the helium escape valve text embossed onto that sort of high polish on that part of the oyster casing. The movement itself has been updated as well, so it's a upgrade from the 3135 movement, which it was previously when it was a Sea-Dweller 4000 model. But now it's Rolex's caliber 3235 movement, which is a perpetual mechanical self-winding movement. Still 1 COSC certification specifications, which is the plus two minus two seconds a day. This movement was actually based on Rolex's flagship model, which is the date eight press which has the 3255 movement, and this is the 3235 movement. What they added into the 3235 movement is that they've added what's called the Chronergy escapement which is a skeletonized escape wheel made out of a nickel phosphorous alloy. The skeletonization of the escape wheel helps with the reduction of inertia for more efficient energy usage, and the choice of the nickel phosphorous alloy helps with the significant resistance to magnetism. So highly magnetic resistant watch, and that's in pair with blue pair comb hairspring as well, which is a silicon made hairspring. So additionally the movement has an updated power reserve as well. Originally the previous was 40 hours, now we're looking at a 70 hour power reserve. So you can put this watch down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday evening, it should still be keeping time just fine. Alright, so let's go ahead and get this watch on my wrist now. Show you guys. Go ahead, again, folding, safety, nice. Down, 'kay, and there's a watch on my wrist. As you can see, it's so much extra extension on the wrist there. So I can go ahead and adjust that, show you how it looks, probably without all the way out. So, once again, 45 degree angle, snap inwards, snap back in, nice and secure. One thing to mention, I do have an average man size wrist. I have a 7 inch wrist. As you can see, there's still a little bit of room left over from the standard setting there. And there we are.
