We have a new nickname for the new Sea-Dweller ! By Guido Mondani is the name "Polyphemus" : the most famous cyclops, son of Poseidon, king of the Sea..

We think it is perfect for the "king of the sea" Rolex Sea-Dweller, now with the Cyclop lens..

What do you guys think about it ?

Well...

I think Rolex named it appropriately. I think SeaDweller will work just fine for most of us.

1) Who is "we"?
2) You have had feedback from TRF about this name when you started a thread there. I'm not sure what your end-game is.

To answer your question, if you are really asking: this is what I think about it.

if its just the cyclopse that people don't like, cant this just be swapped over with a crystal without one?

If there wasn't a cyclopse, would your view differ regarding this watch?

i have no doubts that the creative Departure here will find a

solution for the cyclops problem.......but i think it´s an optical problem, cause the movement is too small so that they has to place the date a bit in the mid of dial. It could be possible, that the dat size looks a bit crazy without the Lupe
cheers

That's what I'd call it.

Maybe end of vintage seadweller

May 13 2017, 11:58 PM 

Yesterday I spoke a lot of Rolex fanatics. All of them are new generation. I believe they are more interested now in new models then the vintage ones. They'd rather be on a waiting list or pay above price for new seadweller then paying a fortune for a 1665.
No more headaches about damaging the vintage dial during service,relumed or not issues etc etc
For me you can call it the endofvintagedweller
