Christian Redl, extreme freediver and holder of the world record for diving under ice with a depth of 200 feet, has decided to test his limits once again.
To support him in setting a new record, Redl would be wearing the Iceman II Limited Edition from Edox. The watches are a 203 piece limited edition to signify the depth of the lake .
The challenge is at the Gokyo Lakes, which are a sacred shrine of Hindu and Buddhist philosophies, are situated in Nepal at an altitude of between 15, 400 and 16,900 feet and are the world’s highest freshwater lake system.
At this altitude, walking and ascending summits become superhuman tasks. Planning every detail, and undergoing rigorous training, he will subject himself to real-life tests to evaluate the transformation of his metabolism during freedives at this high altitude.
The Gokyo project will reach its culmination from October 6 to 27.
