James Cameron Makes it to the Challenger Deep Valley of the Mariana Trench – Rolex Intact

Did you realize how big of a role Rolex plays in modern history? Fifty years ago in 1960, two explorers by the names of Jacques Piccard and Lt. Don Walsh, descended in the Bathyscaphe Trieste, their submarine, to break the all-time human depth record of 35,813 feet. During that dive a Rolex Deep Sea Special was strapped to the outside of the submarine to gauge its durability during that depth and pressure. The divers and the Rolex survived their one-of-a-kind plunge. Fast forward to 2012 and for the first time since that original successful dive and one other man along with a Rolex have again achieved history by reaching the Challenger Deep and returning without a scratch to the surface.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duoface Watch – The Watch for Polo Players

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Duoface Watch was first created in 1931. The design of the watch was specifically for polo players from Great Britain who were stationed in India. The British polo players wanted a watch that was accurate but also strong enough to wear while playing polo without a risk of damaging the watch. Most watches of that time were designed with crystals that were delicate and usually created from glass. The Reverso was designed differently. Since it was designed for rough games of polo, it had to be much more durable.
