Omega has just announced that earlier this year, adventurer Victor Vescovo set a new world record for the deepest dive, taking his submersible Limiting Factor 10,928 meters below the ocean’s surface into the Mariana Trench. And, importantly, strapped to the outside of the Limiting Factor was a new experimental Omega dive watch, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional. In fact, there were actually three Ultra Deep Professionals on the dive – one on each of the main vessel’s robotic arms and an additional one of a detachable lander vehicle. This is now the deepest diving watch of all time, taking the record previously held by the bathyscaphe Trieste, its pilots Captain Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard, and the legendary Rolex Deepsea Special. They reached a depth of 10,916 meters back in 1960, meaning Vescovo and Omega have gone 12 meters deeper.
