Fascination About cool watches under 300
Today, speaking about sub clocks means pointing directly to a category of timepieces that is normally employed for even ten per cent of its potential.
What good is it to get the best, which for him to dive to over 1,000 meters of depth would be as easy as "drinking a glass of water", when the individual has secured his wrist into the max after a dip and a few strokes, then return immediately to lounge under the umbrella?
If this is their main 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 desire to be the protagonist of the best diving watches
Three decades later, in 1953, Blancpain devised the Fifty Fathoms, one of the most iconic timepieces that the group can boast, has been already tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to challenge the depths of the well-identified abysses at "The Silent World", a famed documentary -film additionally winner of the Oscar award.
Continuing, I believe that even non-fans will remember well among the very first Rolex Submariner appear several times with Sean Connery, Agent 007 in the movie Goldfinger shot of 1964. Tied into his wrist due to his fabric strap became a legend. It turned out to be a mythical reference 6538 no-guard, to know each other without the crown protector shoulders, imitated a bit by everyone.
These are only a couple of the first cases that show - fiction or reality - for over fifty years, the press - driven by the watch industry - determined the diver watches should be the first to personify the idea of man-adventure. Maybe it is also from that day the brands when it came 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 mechanics of the most famous secret agent in the world, and clearly also the opinion whose function has been played by the Omega Seamaster for several decades.
But beyond their actual use within this large family whose roots would only have to deal with "hard more than steel", now there are also models so bejeweled to dread even when you need to wash the palms.
However, a real diver's watch has generally always had a whole lot to say technically speaking. Let's just mention the features and constructive characteristics of these fascinating references.
I've a long-standing friend who's a professional diver and who, throughout 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 real wrist sub Has to Be able to ensure the following performances:
Fantastic visibility during the dive
A defense against magnetic fields superior to the norm
Resistance to impact and salt water
Accurate confirmation of the operation of the device that reports the dive time
An in-depth evaluation of the efficiency of its movement, either quartz or mechanical
But the tests did not end here: now professional diving watches must adhere to certain rules like those described by ISO 6425.
To get a common mortal usage, what we know is the greatest, the best sub may be in the end a watchable to provide features much milder and easier to handle.
I remember this in order to only immerse the surface in maximum security, a timepiece should be certified to withstand a pressure of 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters), which seems to be redundant, but this is not so when it's done a trivial swim in the sea. It'd be better to avoid diving, particularly if ours could not even count casio scuba watch to a screw-on crown better still if secure on the sides by the classic two shoulders.
And the security on the waterproof status of the underwater timepieces?
Just for those who'd never use them for specialist purposes the ideal would be to be able to rely upon a device that visually signals about the dial in case the crown isn't completely screwed, and the watch is therefore read more at a blatant condition of non-security.
Unfortunately, this really is the primary reason why an abyssal super dip watch might have to be hurried into a service centre, before seawater entering risks compromising any here mechanism indefinitely. This function already exists, however on very few versions, which frankly I don't understand why.
You might have worn your diving diver's watch in your wrist in order to visit the sea and as a result, after correcting the time, have left to twist the crown tightly. It's by far the most frequent case.
Suggestion - As soon as you've worn the costume pick on the fly : either leave your diver someplace safe, or obligatorily create a final but basic check on the tightening of the winding crown.
Now that we have seen a bit 'of issues related to the time that has to meet with the water, and given the essential advice, I reveal you which - to date - are for me the best dive watches.
They're not many: I have split them into two classes. The order in which they appear does not signify any ranking.
