The Rolex Sea-Dweller was released in 1967 as a professional diving watch. This watch can withstand pressures of an astounding 1,220 metres. A unique helium escape valve feature allows it to function even at this depth. This is a necessary feature for saturation divers, who breathe a mixture of air and helium during their dives. These tiny helium molecules were typically able to slip into diving watches, but this innovative valve trapped them and prevented them from ruining the watch.
Not content to stop there, Rolex upped the ante in 2008 with the Rolex Deepsea. This watch truly lived up to its name, able to withstand pressures of up to 3,900 metres. This watch is a monster too, with a 44mm size. The incredible function of this watch is enough to make it worth its weight, so Rolex never went too fancy with the design aesthetics. Most of these only come in stainless steel, although the most recent models have a two-tone option with yellow gold.
