For those of you who don't know already, in 2012 Cameron - with the support of Rolex and a few other brands - successfully solo dived and subsequently explored the Mariana Trench, the deepest point of the earth's ocean (10,908 meters underwater.) We know, we've said it before; we are not vintage watch experts - not by any stretch of the imagination! Nevertheless, every now and then something particularly intriguing comes across our desk which we just have to share with you, such as this extremely rare Rolex Deep Sea Sea-Dweller (wow, try saying that three times fast!)

Like the original, the new replica rolex Deep Sea Sea-Dweller D-Blue Dial has received mix reviews. This is largely attributable to the fact that with the exception of the distinctive dial color the watch is pretty much exactly the identical as Deepsea Sea-Dweller, which many people believe that it is too large and chunky to be practical for daily wear. Nevertheless, several fans have also questioned the arguably gimmicky dial design and the decision to even innovate a special watch for James Cameron in the first place, particularly given that he is not even a Rolex ambassador.

Many of you will no doubt be familiar with the infamous Submariner and Sea Dweller models produced by Rolex replica watches, arguably two of the brand's most popular and ageless collections ever. What makes this piece particularly special nevertheless is that according to the auction house it is from the first round of Sea Dweller D-Blue Dial manufactured in the latter part of 1967.

As with the original model the in-house, COSC-certified automatic Calibre 3135 is responsible for providing the power. The dial of the Deep Sea Sea-Dweller D-Blue Dial is meant to represent that, offering a subtle yet striking visual representation of the ocean's depth. It was attached to the manipulator arm of the Deepsea Challenger submersible which carried Cameron down into the depths of the ocean, and like the great man himself, survived the ordeal unscathed. Accompanying Cameron on this journey, among other things, was a specially designed Rolex prototype known as the Deepsea Challenge which was engineered to withstand depths of up to 12,000 meters. Things start off a lovely blue near the surface where light can reach and slowly descend into pitch blackness as you dive deeper and deeper. It's almost saying "Man wasn't meant to go this far down but we did it anyway."

As you can see above the piece will be sold complete with the chronometer certificate as well as all other certificates/papers and the original box. Whether this will impact on the final sale price is anyone's guess as what drives value in the world of vintage replica watches is a fickle concept indeed. The piece up for auction is rather unusual as not only is it a no valve prototype but the dial is actually from a later model. The year of the dial matches up against the date the watch was first sold and so it seems highly likely that this piece was one of those originally returned to Rolex after the failed tests in 1967 and then updated by the brand for the Deep Sea Sea-Dweller launch in 1971.
