The Oris Carlos Coste Chronograph Limited Edition - Cenote Series
Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1976, Carlos Coste is a world record breaking free diver. He started training in 1998 and achieved his first national record the same year. In 2003 he became the first person to break the 100 metre barrier in the free immersion category. In 2006 Carlos set the world record for free diving in the variable weight category with a mammoth depth of 140 metres in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt on May 9th 2006. Carlos was injured in late 2006 whilst pursuing a world record in the no limits category. He resumed full training a year later and has set various national records since his return. He continues to train hard and push himself to the limit in competitions.
In 2010, Carlos Coste established a new Guinness World Record for freediving, by completing a 150 metre underwater swim using no apparatus through Dos Ojos, a colossal cenote (cave network) that twists for 31 miles under Yucatan, Mexico. The Venezuelan was armed with only a torch and a monofin when he made the death-defying dive and now Oris have honoured this great achievement by creating a special Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series watch.
