World-famous Swiss watchmaker Rolex has unveiled a standalone Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Challenge diver’s watch that will work at depths of 11,000 meters.

The watch is detected by the bezel, and the dial is covered with a heavy-duty sapphire crystal. 5mm 9.5mm In addition, the winding knob has a built-in exhaust valve through which helium that has entered the watch hh escapes. This protects the mechanism from damage during the decompression process.
Inside the case is placed a mechanism with 31 ribs and self-winding, acting by one person. The Deepsea Challenge has an accuracy of +/- 2 seconds per day. The markers on the black matte dial are made of 18 carat gold with chrome illumination.
Becoming the owner of the unconditional status of watch abilities is not all. Their price is $26,000.
