Rolex Deepsea Versus Deep Blue Depthmaster

Post by koimaster » May 11th 2015, 4:36pm

The Deep Blue Depthmaster is water resistant to a depth of 3,000 metres (10,000 feet). The 49 mm case is made out of 316L stainless steel with thick domed sapphire crystal and unidirectional rotatable bezel with sapphire insert.

These two watches were designed with the singular purpose; to enable extreme divers to make them their first choice watch for diving. However, here is where the similarity ends. From this point on, Rolex incorporates the need for styling to cater for connoisseurs whereas Deep Blue went on the need to make its creation tool-like and affordable for the normal Joe.

Rolex made the effort to create a patented divers extension whereas Deep Blue is contented to use the typical one-size only extension mechanism in the clasp.

The helium escape valve mechanism utilized is also different. For Rolex, its engineers created a gas escape valve fitted with a spring: it opens when the difference in pressure between the inside and outside of the watch reaches 3 to 5 bars, allowing the helium to escape, thereby protecting the watch. For Deep Blue, a manual system is used. A special crown at the 10 o’clock position needs to be manipulated manually if the user feels the pressure require equalization. Although this potentially puts the Depthmaster at risk if users forget to engage the valve when required, the assumption is that only professional divers will ever be in that position anyway and training will make them do the necessary to ensure all their equipment are protected.



The patented Rolex Glidelock fine adjustment system allows divers to adjust the length of the bracelet to fit over a diving suit, without using any tools. A toothed panel under the clasp cover provides an extension of up to 20 mm in 2 mm increments.

This reviewer, Meor Amri Meor Ayob, is in danger of making my shit-list, which has some vacancies lately now that Robert Gattshall has decamped the watch scene in order to make Youtube videos about pocket knives.

Really, what sort of dolt would bother doing a comparo review of a Rollie and a goddamned Deep Blue? I understand that the 3000m DB isn't too bad, but this is like comparing a Pringles can filled with fiberglass to a virginal Catholic schoolgirl with terrible esteem issues. Hey, both will make your dick shoot a load, and the Pringles can has the added benefit of not having to fuck around in court, but still!
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

Stain Betosh, or Stain Bets, or whatever the fuck he calls himself these days, can suck my motherfucking dick. The cadaverous cocksucker has sold the fuck out, particularly when he knocked off the SKX series from Seiko, with his "NATO divers fucking la-la."

At one time Stain or Stan or Betz or whateverthefuck made some OK wartchs for the TeeVee goofs, as well as some decent straps. Comparing his shit to Rolex is like comparing my fucking dick to Ron Jeremy's.

WTF?!?!
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
