Rolex Diving WIS Jean-Michel From France...


Rolex Diving WIS
Jean-Michel From France

My pal, Jean-Michel from France is a diving fanatic and WIS and RIS. How hardcore you ask? I will let you decide for yourself. He recently sent in this video along with a note telling me Open Sea diving season is coming to an end but that diving nuts like him always find spots to dive, and this week he and his pals went diving in a dark lake and made this video.

Jean-Michel points out that around 6:23 he and his pal that are wearing Rolex Sea-Dwellers show off their watches along with their pal wearing an Omega Seamaster. Thanks for sharing Jean-Michel!!!!


Jean-Michel also send in this photo of himself a month ago wearing his Rolex Sea-Dweller at 40 Meters (131 Feet). I guess this could be the wrist shot of the day?


Jean-Michel has been kindly assisting me with details on the current series I am working on about the complete history of the Rolex Submariner and Sea-Dweller. On August 24 he sent me and email saying he liked seeing how I covered "Le Prieur" who founded "The Club Of Divers And Underwater Life" which to this day is the oldest dive club in the world.

Jean-Michel mentioned that day he had gone on a dive with the owner of the club. It is a small world after all!!!

I loved this video, particularly the wrist shots.........of course! I've seen his photos on TRF, but this was really fun. Now, what's going on with open sea diving? Why is it coming to an end?

I think the diving season ends at the end of summer since the seas in the northern hemisphere get rougher in the winter–at least that is my best guess...
