Top trumps winner for water resistance

Do they? I thought their deepest was 4000m/13300ft?

I believe that is the highest w/r for their production models but they did make a `special' that was taken down to around 40,000 feet.

For their production models, Rolex have their own pressure tank and test every watch before they are sent for sale. Wonder what the answer would be if Advertising Standards asked for proof of the 20,000 feet claim?

Yeah! It was on the outside of a submersible during a record attempt.

There are some very interesting videos all about it, on the Rolex website. https://www.rolex.com/science-and-exploration/exploration-underwater/rolex-deepsea-challenge.html

Yep I remember the Mariana Trench stunt. Was that the James Cameron thing? Anyhow I was just establishing that their deepest for general sale was 4000m. It's all academic of course. Who needs more than about 30m resistance in practice!

Is that 30m as stated on the dial, or actual 30m? 30m on the dial is barely enough to do the washing up :wink:
