WATER RESISTANCE

On Occasions, when we go to buy a submersible watch, we think that the meters that indicate on the resistance to water are the meters that a clock can be submerged but ... it is not correct.


The following table shows the different ways to measure water resistance.

PRECAUTIONS / TIPS

The most common reasons why your watch can get water are:

 

- Deterioration of the sealing joints of the watch due to abrupt changes in temperature, old age, chemical products, etc.

- Having the crown of the watch removed.

- Misplacing the back cover of the watch by changing the battery.

- Extreme Temperature Changes.

 

Tip: check the water resistance of your watch, either every year or with every battery change, since in the opening process we can not be sure that it remains as strong as the first day.
