Number 25 of a limited edition of 50 examples only, the present watch is offered in absolutely mint condition by its original owner, a veteran of the Royal Navy Clerance Diver Branch who left service in 2015.
To commemorate the formation of the Royal Navy Clearance Diver Branch over 60 years ago, and to celebrate the numerous operations that the Branch has most successfully conducted, both at home and overseas, past and present, Rolex agreed to produce a limited series of only 50 "Royal Navy Clearance Diver Special Edition" Sea Dweller Deepsea Watches. To reflect the heart of the operational community, the case backs feature a high relief representation of the Royal Navy Clearance Diver's crest.
Considered “the most dangerous underwater job in the world”, clearance divers originated as underwater specialists dedicated to the removal of underwater obstructions from channels or harbors. Later the job evolved to include many other activities. Among these, the British Royal Navy – one of only three Navy worldwide – counts also the ghastly task of “human minesweeper”, highly trained individuals whose initial role was to clear sea-lanes to allow landing crafts to approach enemy beaches safely.
