Detailed Notes on best underwater watches
Today, talking about sub clocks means pointing straight to a category of timepieces that's normally employed for even ten percent of its potential.
What's it to get the best, which for him to plunge to over 1,000 meters of depth would be as simple as "drinking a glass of water", when the person has fastened his wrist into the max following a dip and a couple of strokes, return instantly to lounge under the umbrella?
If this is their principal use, it is only the fault of old habits at least as far as the debut of the so-called divers of the modern age that dates back into the middle of the previous century.
The incorrigible need to be the protagonist of the best diving watches
Three years later, in 1953, Blancpain invented the Fifty Fathoms, among the most iconic timepieces the group can boast, was already tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to battle the depths of the well-identified abysses in "The Silent World", a famed documentary -movie also winner of the Oscar award.
Continuing, I feel that even non-fans will remember well one of the very first Rolex Submariner look several times with Sean Connery, Agent 007 in the film Goldfinger shot of 1964. Tied into his wrist became a legend. It turned out to be a mythical reference 6538 no-guard, to understand each other without the crown shield shoulders, imitated a bit by everyone.
These are just a couple of the very first cases that show - fiction or fact - for over fifty years the press - driven by the watch industry - decided the diver watches should be the first to personify the idea of man-adventure. Maybe it is also from this day the brands in regards to describing their versions began to use the term: "appropriate for any occasion".
The 007 change, sadly also the mythical "Mr. Q "- the inventor of all of the mechanisms of the most well-known spy in the world, and clearly also the opinion whose role was played by the Omega Seamaster for many decades.
But beyond their actual use in this massive family whose origins would only deal with "hard even more than steel", now there are also versions so bejeweled to fear even once you have to wash the hands.
But a true diver's watch has normally always had a lot to say technically talking. Let us just mention the characteristics and constructive characteristics of those fascinating references.
I've a long-standing friend who is an expert diver and who, during his diving at the Persian Gulf, makes 100% of his diving watch - like that valve to get the escape of gaseous mixtures that are read more breathed at high depths.
A True wrist sub must be able to ensure these performances:
Excellent visibility throughout the dip
A protection against magnetic fields superior to the standard
Resistance to impact and salt water
Accurate confirmation here of the operation of the system that reports that the dive time
An in-depth test of the here efficacy of its movement, either mechanical or quartz
However, the tests did not end here: now professional diving watches must adhere to specific rules like the ones described by ISO 6425.
For a common mortal usage, what we know is the best, the best sub could be ultimately a watchable to offer attributes much milder and easier to manage.
I recall that in order to simply immerse the surface in maximum security, a timepiece ought to be certified to withstand a pressure of at least 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters), which seems to be redundant, but this is not so when it is done a trivial swim in the sea. It'd be better to avoid diving, especially if ours couldn't even count to a screw-on crown, better still if secure on the sides by the classic two shoulders.
Along with the safety on the watertight status of the underwater timepieces?
Just for those who'd never use them for specialist purposes the ideal would be to have the ability to rely upon a device that visually signals about the dial in case the crown isn't completely screwed, and the watch is consequently at a blatant condition of non-security.
Unfortunately, this really is the primary reason why an abyssal super dip watch might need to be rushed to a service centre, before seawater entering risks compromising any mechanism forever. This function already exists, however on very few versions, which frankly I don't understand why.
You may have worn your diving diver's watch in your wrist to go to the sea and consequently, after adjusting the moment, have left to twist the crown tightly. It's the most common case.
TIP - When you have worn the costume pick on the fly : leave your diver somewhere safe or obligatorily make a closing but fundamental check on the trimming of the winding crown.
Now that we've seen together a little 'of problems linked to the time that must satisfy the water, and also given the necessary information, I show you that - at least so far - are for me the best dive watches.
They are not many: I've divided them into two classes. The order in which they appear doesn't represent any position.
