He is said to rarely have his feet on the ground. At the controls
of his airliner, he spends most of his time above 30,000 feet. And
when he’s not flying, he’s venturing far beneath the surface:
Herbert Nitsch is the only freediver to have reached the fabulous
depth of 700 feet! A peerless athlete with a mind of steel, the man
nicknamed “Flying Fish” will soon become the first breath-hold
freediver to break the legendary 1,000-foot barrier. To continue
exploring the frontiers of extreme accomplishments, Herbert
Nitsch relies on Breitling’s ultra-sturdy, precise and high-performance “instruments for professionals” to accompany him in
all the many challenges he undertakes on land, in the air, and
under the sea.
