Gold is coveted for its lustre and nobility. Steel reinforces strength and reliability. Together, they harmoniously combine the best of their properties. A true Rolex signature, Rolesor has featured on Rolex models since the early 1930s, and was trademarked as a name in 1933. It is one of the prominent pillars of the copy Rolex Oyster collection.
In fact, the Rolex Datejust Turn-o-graph replica is one of timepieces with the longest tradition in the Rolex family. As a member of the creative Professional line of Rolex watches, the first Turn-o-graph was unveiled in 1953, with the 40mm-diameter case, Caliber A.296 self-winding movement and water resistance to 50 meters. It is worth mentioning that it was the first Rolex watch with a rotating bezel for measuring periods of elapsed time, which became popular quickly.
Rolex Datejust collection reveals an elegant temperament and the grand manner. Rolex adopts the quality materials, excelsior craft, and advanced technology to make each piece of series excellent. In addition, all the watches need to go through rigorous tests such as the appearance observation, performance inspection and test on time, to ensure the accuracy and reliablity. Rolex Datejust is not only a model of Rolex watches, but also a watch that reflects the concept of lasting value.
This is an examination of a diving Rolex, but of the deepest of them all: the Sea-Dweller. Kick up your feet, pour a glass and relax, it’s time for a Holiday installment of TBT with the vintage Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665.
The Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 or any Sea-Dweller for that matter. Well, that’s not entirely true. I had seen modern versions of them on the wrists of colleagues and came away with one thought and one thought only; why would any of them fork over the extra cash to buy what, to me, looked like a Submariner with a hole on the side? Of course, I knew about the enhanced capabilities of the watch, but it just smelled an awful lot like conspicuous consumption because, after all, none of these folks were engaging in saturation diving. But I get it, when one has the funds to buy either a Submariner or a Sea-Dweller, I can see how enough people have been upsold over time and cajoled into buying the “top of the line” diver from Rolex even though a normal Sub could handle any recreational dive with aplomb. But for the same reasons that we’ll discuss shortly, it seems I was a bit too hasty in my dismissal of the ultra deep diver.
I had chalked them up to being “much ado about nothing”, but reading is dangerous. Heading to well-known sites like Double Red Sea Dweller and Hodinkee (Louis Westphalen penned a wonderful and easily digested history on the model line), I read about the history of these watches and their significance. Reading about the COMEX history was interesting, but I also came across stories of former astronaut Scott Carpenter’s time as a US Navy Diver and most importantly, his involvement with the Sealab project. The project studied the viability of saturation diving and its effects on humans. Carpenter, at one point, even spent nearly 30 days in the underwater habitat. The watches on the wrists of these aquanauts? Well, they were Submariners at the beginning of the studies and apparently transitioned to Sea-Dwellers. To read it here, it seems that Rolex worked with both COMEX and the US Naval divers over time to develop the Sea-Dweller. When considering the fact that the watches were designed to “live” underwater, the name makes sense.
I can recall two underwater dwellings within a lagoon on the premises. One was actually built by the US Navy in the 1970’s as part of the Marinelab program and it still functions as an educational platform. The second dwelling is “Jules Undersea Lodge”, which exists as the world’s only underwater hotel. It was in the latter underwater chamber where Scott Carpenter introduced a class to help simulate the activities of underwater workers. So, yes, the Sea-Dweller at least has a relation to a place where I resided – albeit for only one week. J I told you, loose connections live within my head, but the end result was that a Sea-Dweller was in my future.
This IWC has manufacture calibre 89361, a chronograph movement with a flyback function. This self-winding movement has a power reserve of 68 hours. The height of the watch is 14.2mm, which is not super thin but for a flyback chronograph, it is fine. It also suits the watch.
It surprised me that IWC didn’t come up with a beautiful combination like this themselves, as they are very keen on bringing out stylish watches. Talking about stylish, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions comes on a very nice brown alligator strap. Although not specifically mentioned in the information we received from Bucherer, it appears to be one of those straps made by shoe-maker Santoni.
When Bucherer teamed up with Tudor for their Blue Editions collection, we received quite some emails and messages from people who wanted one badly but were a bit annoyed that they couldn’t purchase it in the United States. These watches appear only in the Bucherer boutiques in Europe and they are not willing to ship. You really need to pick them up yourself. On the one hand, this keeps it exclusive (although you’ll find them for sale on the well-known online marketplaces in BNIB condition) but on the other hand, it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to the people who want one badly (and thus support your boutiques) and ship them.
With a limited run of just 88 pieces, this IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic Bucherer Blue Editions (it still can be pronounced by taking one deep breath) is not only exclusive by its price tag of €21.900,-, but also by the low number of watches that are available. Based on the classic IWC Portugieser Chronograph, one of my favourite models from this Schaffhausen manufacture, Bucherer added a couple of cool things in the mix. A beautiful red gold case in 42mm with a stunning blue dial. Combined with the red gold hands and hour markers, it is a very nice variant on the existing red gold IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic reference IW390301 with silver dial.
