The infamous Rob Palmer ad --- "I don't worry about my Rolex..."

I wonder what Palmer was worrying about the day he took a header down a wall in the Red Sea? His body, and presumably his SD, were never found. The cause of his erratic behavior remains a mystery.

This one is unique. Dr. Sylvia Earle. The same ad is normally used for the Sub, and Sylvia has done many others for the Ladies DJ. Sylvia normally wears her TT DJ.

Here's an extremely rare ad for the extremely rare Double Red Sea-Dweller.

Another 1989. Bill Stone and cave diving. This man is on the cutting edge of exploration.

This is the new Sea-Dweller ad appearing in the dive magazines. Rolex has finally given the SD the Green and Black treatment that the other models have received in modern advertising.

A new variation on an old ad. The ubiquitous Sylvia Earle "Save the Planet" ad, now used to advertise the Sea-Dweller.
