BLAKEN’s expertise in customizing Rolexes is unparalleled, and its updated version of this vintage Double Red Sea-Dweller is quite impressive. An iconic release from 1971, this timepiece has a hermetically sealed Oyster housing, a black Cerachrom bezel, platinum digits and indices, and a hand-painted dial with red lettering. The mechanism is of course powered by a COSC-certified Chronometer self-winding movement. As a special finish, each watch is individually numbered and engraved at the back. According to the German company, It’s a watch where “classic meets modern.”
