Introducing The Rolex Sea-Dweller In Two-Tone Steel And Yellow Gold Ref. 126603

Introducing The Rolex Sea-Dweller In Two-Tone Steel And Yellow Gold Ref. 126603

Snappy Take

Rolex’s large delivery this year is, straightforwardly, a big discharge. We’re getting an update to the exemplary Sea-Dweller, this time in a two-tone Oystersteel and 18k yellow gold setup. In fact, the watch is a lot of a similar ref. 126600 Sea-Dweller that Rolex delivered back in 2017 ( and that Ben checked on here ). It’s 43mm across, has a cleaned clay bezel, actually uses the exemplary helium get away from valve on the left half of the case, and is controlled by the beefed up type 3235 development. It’s a hard core Rolex sports watch, just with another brilliant shade added to the mix.

Rolex alludes to this combination of metals as “yellow Rolesor,” which is only their method of saying that the watch combines components made of their exclusive Oystersteel amalgam and components made of 18k yellow gold. It’s basically a more pleasant method of saying “two-tone.” The Sea-Dweller’s case and external wristband joins are made of steel, while the bezel ring, crown, and focus arm band joins are strong gold. Furthermore the hands and lume encompasses on the dial are yellow gold the bezel markings are gold-filled, and the “Sea-Dweller” signature has a cool plated tone as well. The lume is Chromalight that sparkles blue. 

Introductory Thoughts

The clever thing about this watch is that while I’m certain it has incalculable instrument watch stalwarts wringing their hands, grinding their teeth, and fuming with reason situated annoyance, this is a watch that apparently ought to have existed some time in the past. Must I advise you that right off the bat, Rolex commended its submerged time keeping accomplishments by making two-tone jump looks as prizes of sorts. On the off chance that you return and watch our Talking Watches with René Beyer , you’ll hear his tale about his dad accepting the two-tone Deep Sea Special you see beneath straightforwardly from Rolex after a comparable watch arrived at the lower part of the Mariana Trench tied to the outside of the bathyscaphe Trieste. Furthermore, that was in 1960, when the Submariner was as yet a generally unique contraption.

As far as this watch itself goes, it’s not one for weak willed or wrist. Rolex doesn’t give a particular load to it, yet at 43mm x 15mm, the watch is weighty in steel. Add those gold wristband interfaces and you have a watch with some quite genuine wrist presence. I’m energized to give this one a shot less in light of the fact that I’m persuaded that I’ll wind up feeling like I need one and more since I believe it will be one hell of a pleasant encounter. There’s something that feels somewhat offensive and flippant about wearing a gold games watch, and a two-tone Rolex is something extraordinary anytime. We’ll have live pics of this one soon enough, so I’ll hold off on passing any greater judgment until then.
