For the first time, Rolex has incorporated two classic designs of the brand into the dial of the new sea-dweller diving watch. The first is the red lettering of the SEA-DWELLER brand series in the lower part of the watch. Features pay tribute to the first sea-dweller watches. The second is the Rolex date display magnifying glass. The previous sea-dwelling diving watch did not have a calendar magnifying glass.
