The James Cameron Rolex is characterized by a unique blue gradient dial – aka D-blue – that was developed by Rolex to mimic the transition of the ocean water from its furthest depths to its surface. The connection between the famed director and the DeepSea dates back to 2012 when Cameron became the first person to solo dive to the Mariana Trench. The DeepSea was developed as a deep saturation diver and is capable of withstanding depths of up to 12,800 feet, making it a natural choice for Cameron’s history-making dive. To commemorate their presence during that dive, Rolex released the D-Blue ref. 116660, which features an exclusive dial and a bright green logo in the same color as Cameron’s submersible. The ref. 126660 followed a few years later and is equipped with a very desirable ceramic bezel insert, a larger maxi dial, a 904L-grade Oystersteel finish, and a brand new calibre 3235 Perpetual movement with a Chronergy escapement.
