After several years of development Rolex watch was finally able to release fashion

After several years of development Rolex was finally able to release what I believe to be the brand's first serious mechanical dive watch. This is a bit ironic as the brand is well-known for their durable timepieces popular with none other than the Rolex. For most of the brand's existence I think they mostly played with Swiss quartz movements but the last few years has seen a mechanical Rolex http://www.malloyveneer.com/rolex-daytona-replica-best-seller.html watch here and there. One of them is this very capable 1500 Series pieces also known as the Rolex.

According to Rolex the watch is rated. This rating has mostly to do with water resistance, but also is the overall rating that a watch must meet to be considered a serious dive watch. Such ratings were established in order to separate watches that merely look like dive watches and ones that actually are dive watches. In this case the Deep Dive Automatic wants you to know it is a serious diving tool - whether or not you ever intend to submerge with it. For skeptics there is always the engraved diving bell style helmet on the rear of the case.

Even on the natural rubber strap the watch is large and heavy. This piece feels solid and weighty. The tonneau style case makes the 44mm wide size feel larger, but being in PVD black helps visually reduce the mass a bit. Though it is a darn cool looking watch on the replica Rolex Day Date II. 44mm wide is a bit of a misnomer given the large crown and guard structure. It is funny how 44mm wide can seem to large or small depending on the style of the case.

The prominent bezel in black is marked with silver numerals and markers. The non-white text helps the bezel design not over-power the dial - which Rolex wants to be the main attraction. Here you'll get your choice of a few colors mixed with a healthy amount of tritium gas tubes for luminant. There is also a tube at the 60 minute mark on the bezel. This particular model is the ref. 1505, being the "bumble bee" version in black and yellow with some white. It is my favorite, but other versions are available.

You'll find the dial to be particularly bold, as the hour markers are richly filled in with color. The protruding gas tubes as well as the angled flange ring make for a deep looking dial that isn't flat. Plus, the central part of the dial is recessed just a little bit to follow the hour hand track. Often times on dive watches with different color hour and minute hands the minute hand gets the more "obnoxious" color (such as orange). Here Rolex was clever and make the hour hand yellow with the minute hand being a softer white color. In the dark you can see the minute hand not only because it has double gas tubes but because it is colored blue versus green.
