ROLEX DEEPSEA SEA-DWELLER CERAMIC BEZEL





ROLEX DEEPSEA SEA-DWELLER CERAMIC BEZEL

  ROLEX DEEPSEA Ceramic bezel and how it is fitted to the case









Rolex have changed the way the bezel is held in place to the now discontinued
Sea-Dweller 16000 that used click springs and washers to hold the bezel on.
The DEEPSEA bezel is sitting on four spring loaded ball bearings positioned at approx
2 ,5 ,7 ,and 11 o'clock, The one at the 7 o'clock position has the clicker on it.The bezel
is held in place by what appears to be some kind of plastic white washer,.. The washer is only
touching the ball bearing with the clicker which is placed closer to the crystal than the other three .


This system makes the bezel spring up and down a little on the case.giving it a much
looser fit than the original Sea-Dweller was,The bezel is smooth and clicks are positive,
It doesn't take much effort to turn the deepsea bezel don't know if this is a good thing as
it can easily be moved accidently forward which will only shorten the time of a dive so it
is quite safe but can be annoying ,Overall it is still a very nice bezel that Rolex have on the
DEEPSEA SEA- DWELLER .
