    Great stuff, Oyster! Some people have all the luck. Access to even more 'toys' to test his other 'toys'.

    Reminds me of another member over at TURF who's seen the Titanic in a deep sea submersible.

    Simply incredible. :thanks

    I understood that he is working for the french oil company TOTAL. He also thanked Bruno in his review, moderator and co creator of Chronomania (french watch forum) , which review of the Rolex SD (http://bruno.cracco.free.fr/montres/...ler.16600.html) was probably at the origin of hundreds of sales for Rolex.

    Hi,

    yeah, looks spectacluar, but what is the benefit? This dive depth was the normal ranking for the Seadweller (4000ft/1200 m = 122 Bar). And the watch got no problem. I think, thats not sensationell. Ok, some watches may be "overranked" and they die before its limit. But Rolex? No.

    Now to our lovely brand SINN, and our top U-series.
    Ok, the test at Sinn factory was not in real water dive conditions, ok, but the pressure tube bar instrument was exact regulated and the body from the X-model (with rubber membran on back) reached 1203 bar without damages. And our U2 watch complete is good for 250 bar pressure.

    Anyway, I accept the feeling of such a real life test. I think, we all would be happy to do such a test with our watch and we would love it after the test more and more....

    But - dont forget the big thx to our Timothy for his wonderful "travel and experience" reports with conditions, that we never have in central europe (cold & snow). He was the first (and only) tester for this extreme conditions, and not only I bought a U2 after reading this test.....

    cheers

    Re: 1200m watch test in the sea

    I call it fun.B-) That´s what this forum is all about. You don´t need it, that´s for sure, you even don´t need a Rolex or a Sinn to know what time it is. You can use your cell phone. But I love to see what my watch could do, and I would be very happy to test my own Sea Dweller in this test. And don´t forget the Sea Dweller went down to 1200m more than 20 years ago. That was a time when all of the divers watches could go down to 200m or 300m. Rolex still is the only watch that has been down to the Mariana Trench, this was 1960 when they went down to 10 916m .Even my UX will not work in this depht.:-D
