Diving record made official for Omega
When explorer Victor Vescovo took Omega to the bottom of the Challenger Deep in 2019, his dive was recognised as the deepest ever. Today his achievement has been officially recognised by Guinness World Records, certifying that his journey to a depth of 10,925 metres is the “deepest single-manned dive” ever made. Victor Vescovo recorded this new world record as part of the Five Deeps expedition, which took him to the deepest of the five oceans. On his descent to the Challenger Deep, he took with him three examples of the innovative Seamaster “Ultra Deep”, one of which was attached to the automatic arm of the Limiting Factor submersible and another to a data collection unit called the “Lander”.
