ZRC Diver watches

Vintage ZRC diver watches

These French diver watches were made famous by Jacques-Yves Cousteau ; commonly known in English as Jacques Cousteau & his team of divers.  He was a French naval officer, explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He co-developed the Aqua-lung, pioneered marine conservation and was a member of the Académie française.

Cousteau described his underwater world research in a series of books, perhaps the most successful being his first book, The Silent World: A Story of Undersea Discovery and Adventure, published in 1953. Cousteau also directed films, most notably the documentary adaptation of the book, The Silent World, which won a Palme d'or at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival. Besides the ZRC, there are many other interesting diving watches worn by the team

For who love bigger watches, this ZRC Spatiale will be the ideal one as its bigger then the version 1,2.
