Celebrity adventurer James Cameron achieved the deepest dive on earth  1 Comments


James Cameron Completes Record-Breaking Mariana Trench Dive

James Cameron working together with National Geographic had today surfaced safely after a trip down the Mariana Trench over 10,000 metres deep in a newly designed vertical torpedo shaped submersible called the Deep Sea Challenger. With him was Rolex's new experimental watch - also called the Deep Sea Challenge. A monster of a watch with a case of 51mm wide and height of 28mm rated for a depth of 12,000 metres.  No news yet of the condition of the watch after the dive but it is expected that the watch, which was strapped to one of the working arms on the submersible would have found the dive well within its performance envelope.
