An Unbiased View of mens scuba diving watches
Today, speaking about sub clocks means pointing directly to a class of timepieces that is normally used for even ten percent of its possible.
What's it to get the best, which for him to dive to over 1,000 meters of thickness would be as simple as "drinking a glass of water", when the person has fastened his wrist into the max following a dip along with a few strokes, then return instantly to couch under the umbrella?
If that is their principal use, it's merely the fault of old habits at least as much as the introduction of the so-called divers of the modern era that dates back to the middle of the last century.
The incorrigible desire to be the protagonist of the best diving watches
Three years later, in 1953, Blancpain devised the Fifty Fathoms, among the most iconic timepieces the category can boast, was already tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to challenge the depths of the well-identified abysses in "The Silent World", a famous documentary -film also winner of an Oscar award.
Continuing, I believe that even non-fans will remember well one of the first Rolex Submariner appear several times with Sean Connery, Agent 007 in the film Goldfinger shot of 1964. Tied into his wrist due to his fabric strap turned into a legend. It turned out to be a mythical reference 6538 no-guard, to know each other with no crown shield shoulders, imitated a bit by everybody.
These are only a couple of the very first cases that reveal how - fiction or reality - for over fifty years the media - driven by the watch industry - decided that the diver watches should be the very first to personify the idea of man-adventure. Maybe it's also from this day the manufacturers in regards to describing their versions began to use the phrase: "suitable for any occasion".
The 007 change, unfortunately also the legendary "Mr. Q "- the inventor of all the mechanisms of the most famous secret agent in the world, and obviously also the watch whose function was played with the Omega Seamaster for several years.
But beyond their actual use in this large family whose origins would only have to deal with "hard even more than steel", today there are also versions so bejeweled to fear even when you have to wash the palms.
But a real diver's view has normally always had a lot to say technically speaking. Let's just mention the characteristics and constructive philosophies of these fascinating references.
I have a long-standing friend who is a professional diver and who, during his diving in the Persian Gulf, makes 100% of his diving watch - including that valve for the escape of gaseous mixtures that are breathed at large depths.
A True wrist sub Has to Be able to ensure these performances:
Fantastic visibility throughout the dip
A defense against magnetic fields superior to the norm
Resistance to impact and salt water
Accurate verification of the performance of the system that reports that the dive time
An in-depth evaluation of the efficacy of its motion, either quartz or mechanical
However, the tests did website not end here: today professional diving watches must adhere to specific rules such as those described by ISO 6425.
To get a common mortal usage, what we know is the best, the best sub may be ultimately a watchable to provide attributes much milder and easier to manage.
I remember that in order to only immerse the surface at maximum security, a timepiece ought to be certified here to withstand a pressure of 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters), which seems to be redundant, but that is not so when it's done a trivial swim at the sea. It'd be better to avoid diving, especially if ours could not even count on a screw-on crown better still when secure on the sides from the classic two shoulders.
And the safety on the waterproof status of the underwater timepieces?
Precisely for those who'd use them for specialist purposes the ideal is to be able to rely upon a system that visually signals about the dial in case the crown is not completely screwed, and the watch is therefore at a blatant state of non-security.
Unfortunately, this is the principal reason why an abyssal super dip watch may have to be rushed to a service center, prior to seawater entering risks virtually any mechanism indefinitely. This function already exists, but on very few versions, which frankly I don't understand why.
You might have worn out your diving diver's watch on your wrist in order to go to the sea and consequently, after correcting the moment, have left to twist the crown tightly. It's by far the most frequent case.
TIP - As soon as you've worn the costume pick on the fly either leave your diver somewhere safe, or obligatorily create a closing but basic check on the tightening of the winding crown.
Now that we have seen together a little 'of issues linked to the time that has to satisfy the water, and given the necessary information, I reveal you that - at least to date - are for me the best dive watches.
They're not many: I've split them into two categories. The order in which they appear doesn't signify any ranking.
