The OMEGA Seamaster Apnea

Frenchman Jacques Mayol was known as the “human dolphin” and started his association with OMEGA in 1981, when he tested the new Seamaster 120 watch on his record-breaking free dive to a depth of 101 metres, beating by one metre his famous record of 1976 when he broke the magic 100-metre barrier. These dives were part of a long-running rivalry with Italian diver Enzo Maiorca (the first man to breath-hold dive below 50 metres) lasting over ten years, which saw freedive depths double within a decade and provided the inspiration for Luc Besson’s film”The Big Blue”, which led to notoriety for both Mayol and Maiorca.
