Rolex has just unveiled its newest two-tone Sea-Dweller, bringing for the first time 18K yellow gold into the Sea-Dweller collection. Combined with classic Oystersteel, the Rolesor version of the Sea-Dweller is a perfect blend of function and form, diving down to more than a kilometer under the sea.

Built with a 43mm Oyster case that was crafted from a solid block of corrosion-resistant Oystersteel, the two-tone timepiece features a unidirectional rotating bezel with a 60-minute graduated black insert made from Cerachrom, a special ceramic material developed by Rolex, which is virtually scratch-proof and unaffected by ultraviolet rays. With a matching black dial, the inscription “Sea-Dweller” is painted in yellow to mirror the new inclusion of 18K gold around the watch. The crown is fitted with a Triplock waterproof system, which when coupled with Rolex’s unique and patented helium escape valve, allows this diving watch to reach depths of 1,220 meters. The crystal is made from scratch-proof sapphire, keeping the watch face clear and perfectly intact even in the harshest of environments. At the heart of the watch, the two-tone Sea-Dweller sees a newly-developed Perpetual Calibre 3235 movement, capable of holding a power reserve of 70 hours.

For the wealthy few who love to dive deep, the Rolex 18K Rolesor Sea-Dweller will sell for $16,050 USD later this year.

In other watch news, Tudor has just debuted a new Black Bay P01, inspired by an unreleased US Navy prototype.
