Hands-on experience: The Best Rolex Deepsea 136668LB watch

In 2024, Rolex launched a pure gold diving watch with a waterproof depth of 3900m. Never mind that you can’t wear a watch that deep without getting crushed – this watch, pure and simple, represents status. The new Cheap Rolex Deepsea 136668LB Replica is big and bulky, and we got our hands on it as quickly as possible.

Even the most ostentatious Rolex has sensible taste. But what is the sensibility or taste for a gold watch that is 44m wide and 17.7mm thick? Wearing it is like strapping a shiny cinder block to your wrist. It’s comfortable in a way that maybe only a AAA Rolex Replica can, but it’s also akin to padding velvet on the same cinder block. The bright blue ceramic Cerachrom bezel shines almost as brightly as the gold case.

Solid gold watches are a thing, and in the past Rolex replica watches for men at least had the decency to offer incredibly comfortable Oysterflex rubber straps for its larger gold watches. No such luck here, and the strap, while oyster-like and comfortable, adds dramatic heft to the watch.

One advantage is that you don’t get that top-heavy feeling when a gold watch is paired with a rubber or leather strap—the strap provides a sense of balance on the wrist. One thing that is impressive is the Oysterclasp with Glidelock tool-less adjustment mechanism. It’s very precise and easy to use, and looks much more mechanical than it is.

If you haven’t noticed, the dial is very blue. A ceramic blue bezel surrounds the matching blue dial, contrasting with the contrasting gold case and making it feel almost electric. The replica watches price gold text on the dial and bezel, coupled with the gold frame, contrasts sharply with the bright blue, adding a touch of warmth and excellent legibility.

It creates a more cohesive look to the entire watch compared to the brushed metal ring. Otherwise, the Deepsea dial is as usual, including gold Mercedes hands and a frameless, cyclops-less date window, which I still can’t get over. Would it be that difficult to just add a gold frame around the windows or even just gold trim?

Interestingly, the Rolex Replica Buy Now case back is made of RLX titanium rather than gold. Rolex did not explain this, but there must be some functional reason for using a titanium caseback instead of a gold caseback, which may be more prone to failure at a depth of 3,900m.
