Now, talking about sub clocks means pointing directly to a class of timepieces that's normally employed for even ten per cent of its possible.
What good is it to possess the best, which for him to plunge to over 1,000 meters of depth would be as easy as "drinking a glass of water", if the individual has secured 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 decades later, in 1953, Blancpain devised the Fifty Fathoms, among the most iconic timepieces the group can boast, has been tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to battle the depths of their well-identified abysses at "The Silent World", a famed documentary -film also winner of an Oscar award.
Continuing, I believe that even non-fans will remember well one of the first Rolex Submariner look several times with Sean Connery, Agent 007 in the movie 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 - fiction or fact - for more than fifty years the media - driven by the watch industry - decided that the diver watches should be the first to personify the concept of man-adventure. Perhaps it is also from that day that the brands when it came to describing their models 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 role has been played by the Omega Seamaster for many 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 need to wash the palms.
However, a true diver's watch has generally always had a lot to say technically talking. Let us just mention the features and constructive characteristics of those references.
I've a long standing friend who's an expert diver and that, throughout his diving at the Persian Gulf, makes 100 percent of his diving watch - like check here that valve to get the escape of gaseous mixtures that are breathed at high depths.
A real wrist sub must be able to guarantee the following performances:
Excellent visibility during the dive
A protection against magnetic fields superior to the norm
Resistance to salt and impact water
Accurate confirmation of the performance of the dive watches under 100 system that reports that the dive time
An in-depth evaluation of the efficacy of its motion, either quartz or mechanical
However, the tests didn't end here: now professional diving watches must adhere to specific rules such as those described by ISO 6425.
For a common mortal use, 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 in maximum security, a timepiece ought to be certified to withstand a pressure of 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters), which appears to be redundant, but that is not so when it is done a trivial swim at the sea. It'd be better to prevent 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.
Along with the security on the waterproof status of the underwater timepieces?
Precisely for those who'd use them for specialist purposes the ideal would be to be able to rely on a device that visually signals about the dial in case the crown is not completely screwed, and the watch is consequently in a blatant state of non-security.
Unfortunately, this really is the principal reason why an abyssal super dip watch might 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 models, which honestly 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 the most frequent case.
TIP - When 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 must meet the water, and also given the essential information, I show you which - at least so far - are for me the best dive watches.
They're not many: I've divided them into two categories. The order in which they appear doesn't signify any position.
