Christian Redl Beats World Free-Diving Record
February 12th, on the small frozen Weissensee lake in the Austrian Alps, Christian Redl, world specialist in free diving under the ice, dove to an amazing depth of 61 meters below the ice. The previous record was set at 56 meters below.
With an ice thickness of 31cm, Christian’s dive lasted one minute and 51 seconds in a two degree Centigrade water temperature. What a fantastic and exceptional performance!
Christian Redl, who has been kept from training for almost a week due to a bad cold, was close to canceling this attempt to beat the world free-diving record. In the end, Christian decided he would dive. Now, he’s the new World Champion in under ice free-diving.
Edox, the Swiss watchmaker whose history is marked by countless inventions — some of which remain unsurpassed up to this day — is Christian Redl’s official timing partner. Sturdiness, extreme conditions, technological expertise and reliability are the keys to their joint philosophies. The diving watch worn during this new world record was the Iceman I Limited Edition, available worldwide.
