24.06.2008 - A master class from Carlos the Meistertaucher
Oris recently organised a special diving event with world freediving champion and Oris ambassador Carlos Coste in southern Italy.
In the beautiful region of Puglia Oris guests from Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, France and the UK were invited to learn all about the sport of freediving. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to get a master class from the real Meistertaucher!
Carlos dedicated his energy and enthusiasm to offer an expert insight into his underwater world. The event began with an overview of safety equipment, which included a workshop with watches from the latest Oris Divers collection.
Carlos then taught his team the basics in relaxation techniques, and then led them through some simple exercises in the safe and protected environment of the pool area. Each guest went into the water wearing a watch from the new Oris Divers Collection.
At the end of the three-day event the training was put into practice as the team headed off to dive in the sea – something many of them had never done before. But with Carlos on hand to offer helpful tips and advice there was nothing to worry about.
At the end of the event Philipp Käser, Vice President of Oris, who also attended the event, commented: “It’s amazing how much you can learn about diving in a short time when you have a world class expert to teach you. Our guests have learned first hand how important a good quality watch is when diving – and they’ve learned that from one of the best in the world.”
