There are blue marker and yellow 0 to 15 minutes in the blue circle of the outer rim of the dial, which is very striking and shows the utility of watch function. The platinum fluorescence stereo time scale and the royal oak pointer set off each other. The different shape of the pointer corresponds to the indicator function. What’s more, the scale of the outer bezel of the wristwatch has been specially designed to ensure a clear reading of 300 meters underwater. It is equipped with 3120 automatic winding movement and power storage can be up to 60 hours. Excellent waterproof design makes the waterproof performance of the watch more reliable.

The bottom cover is tightly closed by a Rolex watchmaker with special tools to completely seal the case. The crown, which used the triple lock waterproof system of the Rolex patent, is tightly coasted to the surface of the case. With the new patent Glidelock buckle, divers can extend the bracelet to 18mm, while the telescopic bracelet can be extended to 26mm. And most importantly, the new Sea-dweller 4000 watch is equipped with a 3135 automatic winding mechanical movement developed by Rolex. And swing components are the heart of the wristwatch.

The watch with the professional waterproof depth of 3,000 meters (10, 000 feet) accompanies the explorer to feel the ultimate charm of the deep ocean. The dial is designed for rare yellow. At the 6, 9 and 12 o ‘clock position of the yellow dial, the large luminous scale and hands are still legible even when diving into the dark depths of the sea. It is worth mentioning that this watch uses the unidirectional ratchet rotating bezel, screw-plug antiskid crown and the safety relief valve. So, the water resistance of 3,000 metres is incredible. When the internal pressure reaches 3 atmospheres, the pressure-reducing valve automatically releases the accumulated helium gas in the watch to avoid the case blasting. Besides, carrying authenticated by COSC automatic winding mechanical movement, and with each hour 28800 second-highest pendulum frequency, 25 jewel bearings, power reserve not less than 42 hours. Whether on land, in the deep sea or in the sky, the wristwatch is extremely accurate and reliable. Thus, Avenger II combines with strong appearance and exceptional performance, and it is a professional super dive watch.
