The Submariner was Rolex' pride and joy. On September 30, 1953, Mr Auguste Piccard and his son Jacques Piccard had piloted their new bathyscaphe to a world depth record of 10,335 feet. The watch, a 6204 Submariner, had accompanied the two on their quest, altough it had not been of much use. It had been fixed to the outside of the craft. At a depth of 3,150 meters, or 10,335 feet, the watch had been subject to a pressure of over 600 atmospheres or two tons per square inch. It had survived this grueling test and had returned to the surface, after two and a quarter hour venture, in the same condition as when it had entered. The watch was thereafter the watch was sold as "the diver's friend"!
