Azimuth Xtreme-1 Watch Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
Precisely what are these? Lozano combines two of the most dangerous sports out there: climbing and diving. He’s ascended some of the tallest peaks in the world, but for his next trick he’ll undertake operation “Absolute Altitude.” The Ojos del Salado stands on the border of Chile and Argentina, and is 6,896 metres above sea level. It is in an incredibly remote location, a part of the world this is still insufficiently explored. Near the top of this active volcano--the highest in the world--sits a pristine lake. Lozano is aiming for the World Record in High Altitude diving. Amazingly, he will be the first individual ever to explore this lake.
Unknown conditions await the explorer. The air will be thin and cold. Help will be a long ways away. Underneath the surface, Lozano will utilise one of the members of the Azimuth Xtreme-1 collection. The groups consists of the Sea Hum GMT, the Sea Hum 3TZ, and the Deep Diver. It’s likely that Lozano will make use of the Deep Diver--also known as “The Explorer’s Watch.”
The Deep Diver comes equipped with an unusual square titanium case. This durability translates into a waterproof depth of 2,000 metres, or 6,526 feet. Super Luminova coats the hands and fills the hour markers. Whether you’re in a blizzard on the side of a mountain or in dark, deep water, you’ll always be able to easily discern the time. This is especially critical for divers; the oxygen doesn’t last forever.
It should be noted that the Xtreme-1 line was created in collaboration with Fernando Lozano. The explorer shared his knowledge with Azimuth, ensuring that the pieces will perform the way adventurists need them to.
