New York, NY--Rolex went on to reclaim the title of the diving watch with the world's highest performance production, as it was found to withstand underwater depths more than any other watch.

According to a report, the Rolex 2022 Deepsea Challenge is the latest production version of the experimental watch, which was attached to the submersible hull and piloted to the deepest point in an ocean — the bottom of the Mariana Trench — by James Cameron in 2012.

The 2022 rendition is Rolex's first all-titanium work. It can resist water up to 11,000 meters or 36,090 feet. The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is 10,935 meters.

To ensure that the watch was ready for such a challenge, Rolex contacted its diving partner, Comex, to build an "ultra-high" pressure tank that could reproduce a test pressure equivalent to the pressure experienced at that depth.

The 50mm watch is 23mm thick; 9.5 mm is sapphire crystal glass, adding to its robustness.

The Rolex Deepsea Challenge is available via Rolex and is priced at $26,000.
