Fascination About cool watches under 300
Today, talking about sub clocks means pointing straight to a class of timepieces that is normally employed for even ten percent of its potential.
What's it to get the best, which for him to plunge to over 1,000 meters of thickness would be as simple as "drinking a glass of water", if the individual has fastened his wrist to the max after a dip along with a couple of strokes, return instantly to lounge under the umbrella?
If that is their principal use it's only the fault of old habits at least as much as the debut of the so-called divers of the contemporary era that dates back into the center of the last century.
The incorrigible need to be the protagonist of the best diving watches
Three decades later, in 1953, Blancpain invented the Fifty Fathoms, among the most iconic timepieces that the category can boast, has been already tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to battle the depths of their well-identified abysses in "The Silent World", a famed documentary -movie also winner of the Oscar award.
Continuing, I feel that even non-fans will remember well among the first Rolex Submariner appear several times with Sean Connery, Agent 007 in the movie Goldfinger shot of 1964. Tied to his wrist due to his fabric strap became a legend. It turned out to be a mythical reference 6538 no-guard, to understand each other without the crown shield shoulders, imitated a little by everyone.
These are only two of the first cases that reveal how - fiction or reality - for more than fifty years the media - driven by the watch sector - decided the diver watches should be the very first to personify the concept of man-adventure. Perhaps it's also from this day that the manufacturers in regards to describing their models started to use the term: "suitable for any event".
The 007 shift, unfortunately also the legendary "Mr. Q "- the inventor of all the mechanics of the most famous secret agent on earth, and clearly also the watch whose function was played by the Omega Seamaster for many decades.
But beyond their actual use within this massive family whose origins would only deal with "hard even more than steel", now there are also models so bejeweled to fear even when you need to wash the hands.
However, a real diver's view has generally always had a whole lot to say technically speaking. Let us just mention the characteristics and constructive philosophies of those references.
I have a long standing friend who's a professional diver and who, throughout his diving at the Persian Gulf, makes 100% of his diving watch - including that valve to get the escape of gaseous mixtures that are breathed at high depths.
A True wrist sub Has to Be able to guarantee the following performances:
Fantastic visibility throughout the dive
A protection against magnetic fields superior to the standard
Resistance to impact and salt water
Accurate confirmation of the performance of the device that reports that the dive time
An in-depth evaluation of the efficiency of its movement, either quartz or mechanical
However, the tests did not end here: today professional diving watches need to adhere to certain rules such as those described by ISO 6425.
To get a common mortal usage, what we all know is the best, the best sub may be in the end a watchable to provide features much milder and easier to handle.
I recall that in order to only immerse the surface at maximum security, a timepiece should be certified to withstand a pressure of at least 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters), which appears to be redundant, but this is not so when it's done a banal swim at the sea. It'd be better to avoid diving, particularly if ours couldn't even count on a screw-on crown read more better still when protected on the sides by the classic two shoulders.
And the security on the watertight status of the underwater timepieces?
Just for people who would never use them for specialist purposes the ideal is to be able to rely on a device that visually signals about the dial in the event the crown is not completely screwed, and the watch is therefore at a clear state of non-security.
Unfortunately, this is the principal reason why even an abyssal super dive watch may need to be hurried into a service center, before seawater entering risks virtually any mechanism indefinitely. This function already exists, but on hardly any versions, which honestly I do not understand why.
You may have worn your diving diver's watch on your wrist to visit the sea and consequently, after adjusting the time, have forgotten to screw the crown snugly. It's by far the most frequent case.
TIP - As soon as you've worn the costume pick on the fly either leave your diver somewhere safe, or obligatorily create a final but fundamental check on the tightening of the winding crown.
Now that we've seen a little 'of issues related to the time that must meet with the water, and also given the essential advice, I show you which - so far - are for me the best dive watches.
They are not many: I've split them into two classes. The order in which they appear does not represent any ranking.
