Aquanaut John VanDerwalker received this Rolex Submariner for use during the TEKTITE missions. Preserved in extraordinary condition, this watch is historically important for its place in saturation diving history and extraordinary provenance. During TEKTITE 1, VanDerwalker and his three fellow aquanauts set the new world record for a long duration saturation dive. Offered by the original owner, this is the first time this Rolex has been offered on the market.
This lot includes a plastic scale model of the TEKTITE habitat that is signed by Mr. VanDerwalker and a selection of TEKTITE ephemera.
