Oris Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series Watch Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
Oris has created a special timepiece in honour of Carlos Coste the Guiness World Record holder for freedriving.
Carlos Coste completed a record 150-metre underwater swim using no apparatus in 2010. He swam through Dos Ojos in Mexico a cenote that twists for 31 miles.
The Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series timepiece has been added to the Oris Divers collection. The numerals are filled with SLN to provide visibility in darkness (a reference to the darkness of cave dives) and the top ring is made of scratch-proof ceramic; a tribute to the resilience needed for extreme sports.
Other features include: a glow-in-the-dark essential minute counter to indicate Costes time spent under water; a triangle at the 2 minute position to symbolise his breath record of 2.30 minutes for a dynamic dive; and a second triangle at 7 minutes to symbolise his static dive record of 7.30 minutes.
