TimeJunkie commented on WATER RESISTANCE false advertising? ·

Lots of great info in this post thread on a greatly debated topic. IMO there should be a test for products regarding their water resistance. Bigger question: Why so much resistance to water resistance? Watch collectors loves themselves some accuracy, anti-magnetic qualities. Anti-reflective coating, legacy achievement real or embellished, new versions of metallurgy - grades of stainless steel & Titanium, etc.  Overbuilt extremes justify Pilot, Scientific,  Rail, and Dive watches save one category: water resistance. Nobody on this thread is doing a space EVA tomorrow,  taking sorties for the departed Ghost of Kiev, or introducing a new method of fusion reaction next Monday. We all love overbuilt watches that help us justify adding one more to the collection. As someone who is old enough to have relied on a watch to dive with, divers love overbuilt gear. Greater tolerance often equal greater durability & better reliability. Why pooh pooh 100m (or more) of water resistance protecting that killer Spring Drive or Coaxial Movement? It's more protection for the movement you love. The same can be said for Gauss rating. No one has posted 15,000 Gauss is too damned extreme! I say hold manufacturers accountable for inexcusable sub par water resistance ratings on all the danty little dress watches we love. Overengineer water resistance just like the ridiculous tourbillon movement we all gaffaw about in those dainty gold watches. 

BTW, some watches do hit water. This little Titanium gem sees 2.5 hours of pool time 6 days a week & the Pacific a minimum of once a week in the winter & three days a week spring to fall. Swimming, diving, surfing, pool laps, open water miles. 2022 has seen a lot for this watch. Diver aren't all made for booth diving at a Vegas Club
