Rolex has been a master of form elegantly following function. And that invicter-sized watch was designed to be strapped to the exterior of Cameron’s Deep Sea Challenger.

As such I don’t think it would be “hating” or even negative to note that, perhaps for the first time in Rolex history, it was not designed to be worn by a human. And I would lust after the thing if I was a submarine. But I’m not a submersible so I’m happy enough to view it as a technology exercise.

Still, I feel oddly compelled to fish my Tuna from the bowels of the watch box - maybe take it for a spin. I suppose the fact that Rolex could pull it off without overly exceeding the size of the Tuna is plenty impressive.

It is an engineering feat. I don't believe poor Tow-bea believes it is real. Perhaps the hot sun down under got to him. Or too much vegemite!

Just wanted to jump in and note that Rolex really knows how to keep us on our toes! While it might not be the most practical choice for everyday wear, I find the concept intriguing. Let the haters hate, but we all know Rolex still wears the crown. However, I lean more towards simpler and affordable watches myself. For me, a watch isn't just a luxury accessory; it's a crucial part of my daily routine. That being said, I recently came across a patek philippe replica that genuinely surprised me with its exceptional quality, functionality, and technical features. It's impressive how it ticks all the boxes and fits seamlessly into my lifestyle. Sometimes, you can find the perfect balance between style and practicality without breaking the bank.
