Grand Slam winner Gary Player – who has won nine Majors on the Regular Tour and nine on the Senior Tour – is one of the most successful golfers in the history of the sport. As well as being the World's Most Traveled Athlete, Player has won 165 tournaments on six continents over six decades and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. Along with Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus he became known as one of "The Big Three" golfers of his era – from the late 1950s through to the late 1970s. He turned professional at 17, after being encouraged to play golf by his father, who told him he might one day own a Rolex. Today, his Rolex is a reminder of the adversity he faced, how far he has come and of his father. @gary.player #Rolex#DayDate#EveryRolexTellsAStory

In 2012, the Rolex Deepsea Challenge experimental watch made history. It accompanied film-maker and explorer James Cameron on his solo dive to the deepest part of the ocean, at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, some 11 kilometres (6.8 miles) below sea level. During its development, the watch was tested in a special hyperbaric tank at pressures up to 1,500 bars, corresponding to a depth of 15,000 metres (nearly 50,000 feet); this is 25 per cent greater than the depth at which the watch is guaranteed waterproof. Entirely developed and manufactured in-house, the Rolex Deepsea Challenge is an example of exceptional engineering. #Rolex#RolexDeepsea#TBT

The new-generation calibre 3235 powers the Rolex Deepsea for the first time. Its oscillator is fitted with the exclusive blue Parachrom hairspring, which is 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. Thanks to its new barrel architecture and the Chronergy escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 extends to approximately 70 hours. #Rolex#RolexDeepsea
