An Interview with Scott Cassell – Giant Squid, Sharks and Luminox Watches
Luminox make smart diving watches perfect for telling the time no matter how dark and murky the depths are. They have recruited the services of expert diver Scott Cassell as a brand ambassador and they have even named a small range of their watches after him including the 1525 Deep Dive Special Scott Cassell dive watch and the 3054 Colormark Special Scott Cassell dive watch. Here is the Video Interview of Scott Cassell
Scott is a fascinating guy with lots of stories to tell, not only about his pride to be a representative of Luminox, but about his fantastic adventures as an oceanographer and a marine conservationist. He’s worked as a counter terrorism dive instructor, he’s hunted poachers and he’s even worked with National Geographic, Animal Planet and the BBC on some of their underwater projects.
I managed to catch up with Scott on his recent visit to the UK and we spoke about his recent 30 mile scuba dive, his amazing career underwater and his new partnership with Luminox. He now has a small range of watches from Luminox that carry his name and feature a logo from one of his two companies (Sea Wolves Unlimited and Undersea Voyager Project) that he created to help to conserve the under sea world and its inhabitants.
He’s been attacked by giant Humboldt squid, man eating sharks and poachers, he’s been run over by a boat, been in helicopter crashes (yes, plural… crashes) and yet Scott remains a gentle character with a kind manner and a charm that puts you at ease. He was a pleasure to talk to and his enthusiasm for the undersea world, marine life and watches is utterly infectious.
