In 1926, Hans Wilsdorf created the Oyster watch which had ever been considered as the world’s first diving watch. The perfect fake Rolex Oyster watch accompanied Mercedes Gleitze to swim across the English channel. After more than 10 hours swimming, the wristwatches still performed well.
In 1953, the wristwatch was born in the world which was water resistant to a depth of 100 meters. It was the official first diving watch that Rolex announced. In 1960, Rolex created a word’s record of 10,916 meters by a Deep Sea Special model. Of course the case of this durable imitation watch is very thick to withstand the pressure under water.
Seven years later, Rolex cooperated with COMEX to launch the upgraded version of Submariner which had better performance. It was exactly Sea-Dweller. In 1971, the black dial copy Rolex Sea-Dweller was official listing. Meanwhile, the launch of Sea-Dweller set the new standard of diving watches.
