Showing Off Rolex DEEPSEA D-Blue Model
I recently published a huge story on James Cameron and the launch of the exciting all-new Rolex DEEPSEA D-Blue, which commemorated his amazing Deep Sea achievement. The photo below is the first one I have seen of James Cameron holding his DEEPSEA D-Blue, and it appears courtesy of TimeAndWatches.com, which published an amazing interview which I highly recommend you read.
“They may have introduced this new model, but Rolex don’t chase whims, they don’t chase pop culture. They really like tradition, their support of exploration science is tremendous and they love the fact that being part of this exploration closed the ellipse on the Bathyscaphe Trieste expedition in 1960 (the first manned vehicle to reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench), because they had a watch then that went down on the outside of that vessel too.”
–James Cameron [On The Rolex DEEPSEA D-Blue]
“My first watch was a Rolex Submariner. Like I said, it’s pretty simple. I just always saw Rolex as the best dive watches. I mean, they invented the dive watch back in 1926. I just always associated the Rolex Submariner with divers...I've always had a Submariner on my wrist. I've worn one every day for 30 years.”
Speaking of wearing a Rolex Submariner for the last 30 years. The photo below of James Cameron was taken 17 years ago when he was directing Titanic back in 1997. Notice he is wearing his trademark Rolex Submariner.
