Since ancient times, humans have always held curiosity but have not dared to offend easily. After all, the waves of waves are ruthless, and the dark depth of the deep sea is mysterious and unable to detect the abyss of wisdom. Until the development of diving technologies, which was born in response to the needs of the First and Second World Wars, post-war development was booming. Many outstanding marine scientists and deep-sea explorers showed their skills in the 1950s and 1960s to actively explore the last virgin land of the earth – Research on the ocean’s abyss. Rolex played a vital role in this exploration process.
The British Swimming feat of Mercedes Gleitze Swimming Over the British Geely Strait was published in “Daily Mail,” An ample space also reported the first oyster waterproof meter wearing in his hands.
Expedition-related literature, modern French novelist Jules Gabriel Verne’s book “20,000 Miles under the Sea”, then led the first world marine map by geographical scientists by Prince Prince Albert I in the early 20th century. They all show human curiosity and exploration of human beings. As for the relationship between Rolex and the ocean, the earliest time to go back to 1926. At that time, the brand launched the world’s first waterproof and dust-proof oyster watch, and the following year, the British Swimming Mercedes Gleitze was worn for more than ten hours to overcome the Geothy Strait.

In 1960, US Navy captain Don Walsh and Swiss marine scholar Jacques Piccard took Trieste’s deep sea detection boat to Rolex on the submarine plug. The “Challenger Abyss,” reaching 10,911 meters to Mariana Trench, broke the world record. This concept watch can still be accurately left after ashore, showing excellent powerful performance.

In 1957, US military physiologist Bond proposed the concept of saturated diving in the air with inert gas to avoid the diver’s nitrogen anesthesia that occurred after a certain depth. Through saturated diving, humans can dive deeper and stay longer. Since then, French marine scholar Jacqus-Yves Cousteau launched a resident underwater plan.
The participating scientists can only stay in the water for several days from the beginning, increased for weeks, or even more than a month. The United States also issued a water resident plan named “Tektite” in 1969, allowing female scientists, including well-known marine biologists and explorer Sylvia Earle to work in a high-pressure cabin of 15 meters in water for 58 days. , Set a record for the most extended stay on the bottom of the sea. And they all wear ROLEX models.
Hollywood director James Cameron took a single submarine Deepsea Challenger, to sneak into the Mariana Groove. Finally, he dived to 10,908 meters, breaking the world record for a single-person deep submarine.
After the millennium, ROLEX continues to adventure. The most famous challenge is the 2012 brand, National Geographic Association, and renowned director James. James Cameron conducted the Deepsea Challenger program. At that time, James Cameron took a single submarine Deepsea Challenger into the Mariana Trench and set a world record of 10,908 meters (35,787 feet) under the Pacific Ocean. As for the experimental watches replica hanging on the submarine arm shaft Deepsea Challenge, they can still go ashore and write a new chapter for Rolex history.
