Choose a Dive Watch

How to choose a dive watch?

It should be take several criteria into account when acquiring a diving watch.

The degree of tightness of your dive Watch:

First of all, it should be interested in the particulars presented by the manufacturer on a diving watch. The world of waterproofing is regulated by a standard DIN (Deutsches Institute as fighting, body producing standards for German industry and which are repeated in all of Europe).

The standard DIN 8310 defined a diving watch waterproof as before “must resist perspiration, splashing, rain for example and still against the inclusion of water for 30 minutes to dive to a depth of 1 meter”.

The housing of the diving watch must be marked “water resistant”, followed by a measure in meter or atm. But this should not be taken literally.

To help you choose your dive watch, here’s a summary of the measures and their uses.

1. Indications on the dive watch: no

Recommended use: the watch is not waterproof, make sure to well remove it as soon as you come into contact with water.

Diving: No.

2. Details of the dive watch: Water resistant 30 m or 3 atm

Recommended use: you can, without problem, wash your hands, do the dishes or take a shower with your watch.

Diving: No.

3. Guidance on the dive watch: Water resistant 50 m or 5 atm

Recommended use: your watch withstands all the daily activities that require a contact with water.

Diving: You can swim with your watch, dive carefully with a mask and a snorkel, but you cannot immerse in a bottle.

4. Information on the dive watch: Water resistant 100 m or 10 atm

Recommended use: your watch withstands all the daily activities that require a contact with water.

Diving: You can swim with your watch, dive carefully with a mask and a snorkel, but you cannot immerse in a bottle.

Example of watch 100 m available from Scubaland:

5. Guidance on the dive watch: Water resistant 200 m or 20 atm or more

Recommended use: your dive watch resists all the daily activities that require a contact with water.

Diving: You can swim with your watch, dive with a mask and a snorkel and bottles.

In summary, if you want to be quiet and safe 100%, prefer a waterproof diving watch 200 meters.

Example of watch 200 m or more available at Scubaland:

  • Chris Benz Auto 500 m diver’s watch
  • Lumitech Beuchat diving watch
  • Diving Depthmeter 200 m Chris Benz watch

A diving watch is necessarily round:

The shape of the dial and the nature of the bracelet are also to be considered. Diving watches have a round face, a thick Crown and are equipped with a unidirectional bezel turning the opposite direction of clockwise. The square brackets do not suit waterproof diving watches.

The glass of the diving watch must also be thick, in order to bear a lot of pressure. Not exceed the diving watch case. The latter is often steel and it is advisable to choose a model of having a background and a screwed Crown dive watch.

Legibility on the dive Watch:

When diving, the light coming from the sky may fade very quickly. The dial of your watch for diving must remain readable, even in the dark. Make sure that the needles, the markings on the glasses and the dial indexes are good glow on your dive watch.

The diving watches are often large for these same reasons.
