A Review Of dive watches under 200
Now, speaking about sub clocks means pointing straight to a category of timepieces that's normally employed for even ten percent of its possible.
What good is it to get the best, which for him to dive to over 1,000 meters of depth would be as simple as "drinking a glass of water", if the individual has secured his wrist into the maximum following a dip and a couple of strokes, return instantly to lounge under the umbrella?
If that is their main use it's only the fault of old habits at least as far as the debut of the so-called divers of the contemporary era that dates back to the center of the last 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 that the group can boast, has been already tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to battle the depths of their well-identified abysses in "The Silent World", a famed documentary -film also winner of the Oscar award.
Continuing, I believe that non-fans will remember well among the first Rolex Submariner look several times with Sean Connery, Agent 007 in the film Goldfinger shot of 1964. Tied into his wrist turned into a legend. It was a mythical reference 6538 no-guard, to understand each other with no crown protector shoulders, imitated a little by everybody.
These are only two of the very first cases that reveal how - fiction or fact - for more than fifty years the press - driven by the watch sector - decided the diver watches ought to 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 shift, sadly also the legendary "Mr. Q "- the inventor of all the mechanisms of the most well-known secret agent in the world, and clearly also the watch whose role was played by the Omega Seamaster for several decades.
But beyond their actual use in this massive family whose origins would only deal with "hard more than steel", today there are also models so bejeweled to fear even when you need to wash the hands.
However, a real diver's view has generally always had a lot to say technically talking. Let's just mention the characteristics and constructive characteristics of these fascinating references.
I've a long standing friend who is a professional diver and that, during his diving in the Persian Gulf, makes 100 percent of his diving watch - like that valve for the escape of gaseous mixtures that are breathed at large depths.
A True wrist sub must be able to ensure these performances:
Excellent visibility during the dip
A protection against magnetic fields superior to the norm
Resistance to impact and salt water
Accurate verification of the performance of the system that reports the dive time
An in-depth test of the efficacy of its motion, either quartz or mechanical
But the tests didn't end here: now professional diving watches must adhere to specific rules such as the ones described by ISO 6425.
For a common mortal use, what we know is the best, the best sub could be in the end a watchable to provide attributes much milder and easier to manage.
I recall this in order to only immerse the surface in maximum security, a timepiece ought to be certified to withstand a pressure of at least 5 ATM (about 50 meters), which appears to be redundant, but this is not so when it is done a banal swim at the sea. It'd be better to avoid diving, especially if ours couldn't even rely on a screw-on crown, better still if secure on the sides from the classic two shoulders.
And the security on the watertight status of the underwater timepieces?
Precisely for people who'd never use them for professional purposes the ideal would be to be able to rely upon a system that visually signals on the dial in case the crown is not completely screwed, as well as the watch is consequently in a blatant state of non-security.
Sadly, this really is the primary reason why even an abyssal super dive watch may need to be rushed to a service center, before seawater entering risks virtually any mechanism forever. This function already exists, but on hardly any versions, which honestly I do not understand why.
You may have worn out your diving diver's watch in your wrist to go to the sea and as a result, after adjusting the moment, have left to twist the crown tightly. It is the most common case.
Suggestion - When you have worn the costume decide on the fly leave your diver somewhere safe, check here or obligatorily make a final but fundamental check on the tightening of the winding crown.
Now that we've seen a little 'of problems related to the time that must satisfy with the water, and also given the necessary advice, I show you that - so far - are for me the best dive watches.
They're not many: I have divided them into two categories. The sequence in which they appear doesn't signify any ranking.
