Rolex Deep Sea Special: Water resistant to 35,840 feet

Sure, you think you’re pretty special with your Timex that’s water resistant to 100 meters. Maybe you even have a Seiko Orange monster, or something else that’ll go down to 300 meters. They don’t have anything on this Rolex, it’s been down to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, and came back alive.

I’m not a fan of Rolex in general, (ok, except for maybe the Daytona) but this is just an awesome story. If you’re not familiar with the story of the Trieste, it was teh experimental bathysphere that two men piloted down to the bottom of the Mariana Trench 50 years ago. Along with flashlights and a few other necessary supplies, the two men piloting the craft took a very special Rolex with them. On the outside of the ship. No human (or timepiece) had ever gone that deep before, or since. Rolex recently sponsored a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the event, and they allowed a few lucky individuals the chance to view the Deep Sea Special. One lucky blogger had the opportunity to attend, and actually interview LT Don Walsh, one of the two men who piloted the Trieste to the bottom of the sea. He took quite a few pictures which I encourage you to check out, and also wrote an excellent article about his experience.
