Roman Frischknecht - suited and ready for action
The Oris ProDiver Chronograph - our safest diver's watch
Roman Frischknecht is the only Swiss professional offshore diver. He has worked as a professional diver for over ten years since serving his apprenticeship in the locks and docks of Bremerhaven, Germany. Originally inspired by books about the sea he read as a child, Roman now works underwater all over the world. As well as diving, Roman is a wet welding expert and a qualified hyperbaric technician. His job requires him to spend weeks at a time offshore, often in a saturation chamber.
Roman joined Oris at Baselworld in 2009 to help launch the new Oris ProDiver Chronograph. He took part in the international press conference and gave a diving demonstration in the River Rhine. Roman is Oris’ professional diving partner and wears the ProDiver Chronograph to work. The innovative Rotation Safety System (RSS) makes the ProDiver our safest diver’s watch to date and the perfect underwater instrument for a professional diver.
