Diving Watches

  • 24 Jun 2019

The diving watch or submersible watch is part of the standard equipment of a diver. Also for snorkeling it is nice to have a diving watch. There are several types available, there are combined digital or analog models that also indicate depth and dive time, up to models that are more like a dive computer for all types of data that can be viewed and saved. This last type is also called a wrist dive computer. The prices of a diving watch start at around 90 euros and go up to more than 1,000 euros

A characteristic of a classic diving watch is a rotating ring that is also called a bevel. Almost all analog dive watches have one. The ring rotates only to the left and is graduated in minutes. Often large units such as 10, 20, 30, are shown large and / or of different color. The needles and units of time also glow in the dark. The 60 minutes often has a clear marker. This marker is placed, when entering the water, on the large needle of the time marker. This way you can read instantaneously and accurately during the dive how long you have been diving. There are also analogous models in which diving time can be adjusted and read separately.

The depth of these watches depend on their manufacturer, the model and its price, but in general diving watches are resistant to a depth of at least 100 meters. That's fine for snorkeling and shallow dives. Nowadays, most diving watches are water resistant up to 200 meters.

A classic diving watch is heavier than a normal watch. This is because the outside and the bevel have to be made of high pressure resistant material and salt water. The most commonly used materials are stainless steel and titanium. There are also diving watches made of synthetic material. The watch strap is often made of rubber, polyurethane or stainless steel. Note that the strap is adjustable so that it can be placed on top of the diving suit. The glass can be made of acrylic glass, mineral glass or sapphire crystal. Classic diving watches have a threaded crown that allows once out of the water to set the time and date by "screwing the crown up".
