Details, Fiction and durable watches under 100
Today, talking about sub clocks means pointing straight to a category of timepieces that is normally used for even ten per cent 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 easy as "drinking a glass of water", when the individual has secured his wrist into the max following a dip along with a couple of strokes, return immediately to lounge under the umbrella?
If this is their main use, it's merely the fault of old habits at least as far 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 group can boast, has been tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to battle the depths of their 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 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 everyone.
These are just two of the first cases that show how - fiction or reality - 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 this day the manufacturers in regards to describing their versions started to use the term: "appropriate for any occasion".
The 007 change, unfortunately also the legendary "Mr. Q "- the inventor of all of the mechanisms of the most famous spy on earth, and clearly also the watch whose function 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", now there are also models so bejeweled to dread even once you need to wash the palms.
But a real diver's view has normally always had a whole 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 that valve to get the escape of gaseous mixtures that are breathed at high depths.
A real wrist sub Has to Be able to ensure these performances:
Fantastic visibility throughout the dip
A defense against magnetic fields superior to the standard
Resistance to salt and impact water
Accurate confirmation of the operation of the device that reports the dive time
An in-depth test of the efficiency of its movement, either mechanical or quartz
But the tests did not end here: today professional diving watches must adhere to specific rules like the ones described by here ISO 6425.
To get a common mortal usage, that which we know is the best, the best sub could be in the end a watchable to offer attributes considerably milder and easier to handle.
I recall that in order to only immerse the surface in maximum safety, a timepiece should be here certified to withstand a pressure of at least 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters), which appears to be redundant, but this isn't so when it's done a trivial swim in the sea. It would 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.
Along with the safety on the waterproof 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 about the dial in the event the crown is not completely screwed, and the watch is therefore in a clear condition of non-security.
Sadly, this really is the principal reason why even an abyssal super dive watch might have to be hurried into a service centre, prior to seawater entering risks virtually any mechanism indefinitely. This function already exists, but on very few versions, which honestly I don't understand why.
You might have worn your diving diver's watch on your wrist to visit the sea and as a result, after adjusting the time, have forgotten to screw the crown tightly. It is the most common case.
Suggestion - When you have worn the costume decide on the fly : either leave your diver someplace safe or obligatorily create 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 essential advice, I show you that - so far - are for me the best dive watches.
They are not many: I've divided them into two classes. The sequence in which they appear doesn't represent any ranking.
