Water Resistant Watch: Maintenance and Proper Use in Water
The summer is here, holidays for many of you have already begun or for others start shortly. The suitcases with the necessities are being prepared. Your favorite watch is one of them. But do you have a waterproof watch to withstand diving in the sea and water sports?
Let’s take things from the beginning. Each watch has a different water resistance, which is determined by the manufacturer. Most watches are water resistant, which means that they have water resistance, such as accidental contact with water, like water of rain or wash our hands. Real waterproof watches, those that can be immersed in water, wear them at sea or doing water sports should be specifically labeled.
Keep your waterproof watch dry
There are many times that our watch has ‘picked up’ water while we thought it was waterproof. Theoretically, washing our hands at a normal water temperature, our watch does not have a tightness problem.
How Waterproof Is My Watch?
Not all men’s watches are suitable for swimming or diving. A truly waterproof watch has 10 ATM, 10Bars or 100 M and upwards on the dial or back. For diving the watches with 20 ATMs and for Scuba Diving with 30 ATMs are more suitable.
Watches with 10 ATM
Watches with 20 ATM
Watches with 30 ATM
Any watch that shows a smaller number than that, needs special attention with water. In the table below you can see what each indication means:
