The sea inhabitant

Have you ever wondered why a Rolex Sea-Dweller is named that way? In other words, what is a Sea-Dweller and where did the name come from?

It is a fact, that Jacques Cousteau was responsible for creating the first underwater house or habitats, as part of Operation Conshelf in September of 1962, near the Marseille coast. The objective of Operation Conshelf was to create underwater habitats for saturation divers to "Dwell" in, on the "Sea" floor. The brave team, Albert Falco and Claude Wesly swam into history when they became the first "Oceanauts" or "Aquanauts" or "Sea-Dwellers [Rolex]" to live or "Dwell" under the sea.
