Diver watches are characterized by a high level of water resistance. Those designed for professional divers are characterized, for example, by a sizable size, a specially reinforced, high-pressure-resistant envelope, or a dial with highlighted, very clear most important elements - indexes and hands.
Aqualung diving watches - what water resistance?
Water resistance of the watch is determined by a special designation. Very often the waterproof class is placed by the manufacturer on the dial. If it is 100 m (in other words: 10 Bar), it means that the timepiece will not be threatened by swimming or diving without an aqualung and oxygen cylinder. The 200 m (20 Bar) level already allows underwater activity with an aqualung. For the more advanced there are diver watches with a waterproof rating set at 300 m (30 Bar): you can dive in them with an oxygen cylinder even at a depth of several tens of meters. The best professional men's diver watches, which are used by diving professionals, are characterized by a water resistance class higher than 300 m. So the principle is simple - the higher the waterproofness, the more opportunities to use the timepiece underwater.
Professional diving watches - choose the best brands
Men's diver watches can be found in the collections of top timepiece manufacturers from around the world. Among them, it is worth highlighting, for example, G-SHOCK, a brand derived from the famous Casio, which for years has been producing extremely popular sports watches, loved by all enthusiasts of physical activity. High water resistance is characterized by timepieces from the Prospex Diver series of the well-known Seiko brand. Noteworthy are models bearing the quality mark of PADI, the international organization of professional diving instructors. This is a testament to true reliability.
