...his Rolex, of course:

Key graph:

His goal with his next dive is to tackle a much older record. A half century ago, in a technical feat never equaled, the United States Navy sent two men down nearly seven miles into the Challenger Deep, their vehicle 60 feet long.

The more things change...




Best,

Can't remember that picture, honestly!

But can remember the buzz earlier today I got many emails of new Deepest Dive - Cameron Project.
You see, Lt. Don Walsh is close by advising Cameron on submersible & endless experience, let's hope
all will work out and James will hit the bottom of the sea! Just as Jacques Piccard & Lt. Don Walsh in 1960 did!
