The men's 10 metre platform, also reported as plongeons de haut vol variés (English: varied high diving), was one of five diving events on the diving at the 1924 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was actually held from both 10 metre and 5 metre platforms. Divers performed four compulsory dives - standing inward plain dive, standing backward dive with twist, running forward somersault dive and running reverse somersault dive (5 metre platform) - and four dives of the competitor's choice for a total of eight dives. The competition was held on Saturday July 19, 1924 and Sunday July 20, 1924.

Twenty divers from ten nations competed.
