The new Oris Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series diving watch commemorates the recent record-breaking achievement established by free diving legend Carlos Coste.
In 2010, Carlos Coste created a new Guinness World Record for freediving, by completing a 150 metre underwater swim using no apparatus through Dos Ojos, a colossal cenote (cave network) that twists for 31 miles under Yucatan, Mexico.
The Venezuelan was armed with only a torch and a monofin when he made the death-defying dive and now Swiss watch maker Oris is honouring this great achievement by creating a special Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series watch.
A standout edition to the Diver’s collection, the new Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series boasts a number of original features to highlight Coste’s incredible feat.
The essential minute counter glows in the dark for ease of reading and to indicate the time spent under water; a triangle on the 2 minute position symbolises that Carlos would be reaching his own breath record of 2:30 minutes for a dynamic dive at this point, whilst a second triangle at the seven minute position highlights Carlos’s record of 7:30 minutes for holding his breath during a static dive.
The top ring of this super-functional and desirable watch is made of scratch proof ceramic, a plus for all extreme sports aficionados who need their watches to be as resilient as they are.
The numerals and triangle at the zero position are filled with SLN to provide optimum visibility in darkness like that experienced during cave dives.
The case back is graced by the Carlos Coste logo and the limitation number. This professional grade diving watch is water-resistant up to 500 meters.
