Rolex Deepsea Challenge Private Reception at William Barthman

(by Joe Meny)

The renowned ocean explorer and movie maker James Cameron made history on March 26, 2012, when he carried out the world’s deepest solo dive in the Mariana Trench, nearly 11,000 meters beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean. The Rolex Deepsea Challenge, a highly advanced experimental diving watch, was attached to his submersible. Rolex confirmed its position as the leading watchmaking brand in waterproofness. William Barthman Jewelers celebrated this page in human and watchmaking history with a private reception at its downtown Manhattan location at 176 Broadway.
A combination of cocktails and a buying crowd made for a fun and exciting evening. Attentive waiters made sure hors d’oeuvres were readily available as the crowd moved from one display to the next. It was clear there was a ‘buzz’ in the air, mostly emanating from the primary showroom of Rolex watches located toward the back of the store. A beautiful and exquisite display of the current line of Rolex watches shared the evening’s spotlight with a model of the bathyscaphe “Trieste”, which achieved the first manned dive into the Mariana Trench 52 years ago.
Since Rolex invented the Oyster in 1926, the brand has always been in the forefront of waterproof watches. The Rolex Deepsea Challenge watch, created in 2012, continues to bear witness to the iconic aesthetics that Rolex is internationally known for. For this, and all your Rolex watch needs, be sure to visit William Barthman Jewelers on lower Broadway in downtown Manhattan, or their Brooklyn store located at 1118 Kings Highway.
