Hello watch friends!
This week #freshdrops is all about diver's watches, one of the most versatile timepieces out there.
Well they are great tools able to survive anything you throw at them, but equally happy if you want to get more formal or wear them to work. And let's be honest - the majority of diver's watches get looked after very carefully and don't see any water let alone the ocean. But there is something undeniably cool when they are on the wrist - and why they are so popular.
If you are thinking of getting your watch wet, why not aim high and look to set a new world record for the deepest dive in history? You will need to go beyond 10,934 m (35,872 ft). This is the depth reached by adventurer Victor Vescovo in 2020, who took a titanium submersible - and his OMEGA Planet Ocean Seamaster 600M Titanium (see below) - to the Eastern Pool of the Marianas Trench, the deepest place on the planet.
For comparison the deepest depth a human has reached with scuba gear is 332 metres (1,089 ft), while the current record for freediving (using a single breath) is 253.2 m (831 ft).
Happy browsing, and if you want to channel James Cameron or the late great Jacques Cousteau - give us a call!
