He had to give his arm and shoulder a break from wearing that damn heavy thing!He was wearing his DSSD during the entire event at the Museum of Natural History in NYC, when his documentary was shown and the watch was unveiled. Here he is with Reggie Brack, who heads up private watch sales for Christie's.
These two watches just have too many lines of text (or too much stuff going on), too:Just kidding! I am being facetious of course. But I dunno. That blue/green DSSD doesn't look half bad at all in the metal.
The crazy massive proportions + bracelet that tapers down to 18mm (maybe 16mm even, like a SubC) are the same. So if it didn't work back then the new dial won't change that IMHO...
Here you go. The first DSSD blue/green that made landfall in NYC, beside my "DSSD red." Better pic (I guess): It ain't a bad looking monster in the flesh, ya know... "Only for display, sir! We don't even know when any will be available for sale..."
Now official on Rolex.com. Day! Zap! Night! Boom! Hahahahaha!
I haven't seen it in person. I suspect that the dial is blue/black in the same way that the SubC LV's dial is green/black given different lighting conditions. The green lettering appears to be similar to some facet of Cameron's ship. My first reaction is "WTF" - like most of you - but I need to see this one in person. I keep checking myself given my experiences with other watches. How many collectors said "WTF RED LETTERING?" when red Subs appeared decades ago? I would...
From TRF:
 I'm not sure.  But it is already some form of movie tie-in with James Cameron's DeepSea Challenge documentary - so it's a bit "un-Rolex" of them to do.  What is this?  A "limited edition" DSSD? We shall see.
 There is an event tonight in NYC.   And yes, it IS a new DSSD of some form.
It was a fun lunch gathering!
