With the current trend of watches with increasing water resistant levels, I thought that I would pass along the story of the ultimate dive watch -- The Rolex Deep Sea Special. This watch was developed back in the 50's and 60's by Rolex to test the limits of dive watches to the furthest extent. This culminated on January 23, 1960 when Jacques Picard made his record breaking dive in the "Bathyscaphe" to the bottom of the Mariana Trench off of the coast of Guam.

Here is a link to an excellent article about this watch, Mr. Picard and other significant facts/history in the world of sea exploration.

Oh yeah...here's some pictures of the Rolex Deep Sea Special (not mine, from article):
