Top best mid tier watches Secrets
Today, talking about sub clocks means pointing directly to a category of timepieces that's normally used for even ten per cent of its potential.
What good is it to get the best, which for him to dive to over 1,000 meters of depth would be as easy as "drinking a glass of water", when the person has secured his wrist to the maximum following a dip and a few strokes, return immediately to couch under the umbrella?
If this is their principal use, it's merely the fault of old habits at least as much as the debut of the so-called divers of the contemporary age that dates back to the center of the last century.
The incorrigible desire to be the protagonist of the best diving watches
Three decades later, in 1953, Blancpain invented the Fifty Fathoms, one of the most iconic timepieces the category can boast, has been tied to Jacques-Yves Cousteau's wrist to challenge the depths of their well-identified abysses in "The Silent World", a famous documentary -movie also winner of an Oscar award.
Continuing, I feel that even non-fans will remember well among the very 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 very first cases that reveal how - fiction or fact - for more than fifty years, the media - driven by the watch sector - determined that the diver watches ought to be the very first to personify the concept of man-adventure. Maybe it's also from that day the manufacturers when it came to describing their versions started to use the phrase: "appropriate for any event".
The 007 change, sadly also the mythical "Mr. Q "- the inventor of all of the mechanisms of the most famous spy in the world, and obviously also the opinion whose role has been played with the Omega Seamaster for many decades.
But beyond their real use in this large family whose roots would only have to deal with "hard greater than steel", today there are also models so bejeweled to dread even when you have to wash the palms.
But a real diver's watch has normally always had a whole lot to say technically speaking. Let's just mention the features and constructive philosophies of these here references.
I've a long-standing friend who's an expert diver and who, during his diving at the Persian Gulf, makes 100 percent of his diving watch - including that valve for the escape of gaseous mixtures which are breathed at high depths.
A real wrist sub Has to Be able to ensure the following performances:
Excellent visibility throughout the dip
A protection against magnetic fields superior to the standard
Resistance to impact and salt water
Accurate verification of the performance of the system that reports the dive time
An in-depth evaluation of the efficacy 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 greatest, the best sub could be ultimately 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 (about 50 meters), which appears to be redundant, but this is not so when it is done a trivial swim at the sea. It would be better to avoid diving, particularly if ours couldn't even rely on a screw-on crown, better still when secure on the sides by the classic two shoulders.
And the security on the watertight status of this underwater timepieces?
Precisely for people who'd never use them for professional purposes the ideal is to have the ability to rely on a device that visually signals about the dial in the event the crown isn't 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 very few versions, which honestly I do not understand why.
You may have worn your diving diver's watch in your wrist to visit the sea and as a result, after adjusting the moment, have left to twist the crown snugly. It is the most frequent case.
Suggestion - When you've worn the costume decide on the fly : either leave your diver someplace safe or obligatorily create a final but fundamental check on the trimming of the winding crown.
Now that we've seen together a bit 'of problems linked to the time that has to satisfy the water, and given the necessary information, I reveal you that - so far - are for me the best dive watches.
They are not many: I have divided them into two classes. The sequence in which they appear doesn't signify any ranking.
