How to Find The Right Water Resistant Watch For You

Check out these water resistant watches

30, 50, 100 or 1000 metres... What water resistance mark is suitable for your needs?

Buyers generally have several motivations when buying a watch. For example some consumers just require a timepiece that looks aesthetically pleasing and suits their image. However others require a professional watch for extreme sports.

Over the last few years many questions have been asked about the definition of water resistance in watches. Most timepieces state they are only resistant to water depths of 30 or 50 metres. Although, in reality, they are probably not even suitable for light showers, bathing or use in swimming pools.

 If you require this facility it is recommended that you invest in a timepiece that has been specifically designed for swimming or diving activities. Ultimately, this means watches that are marked 100m, 200m, 500m and 1000m. It is also important to remember that servicing these types of timepieces on a regular basis is essential to ensure the seal is completely intact.

 In reality some water resistant watches aren’t even suitable for use in swimming pools.

Here are six different types of watches that highlight these points.

Fortis Terrestis Orchestra watch

 Fortis Terrestis Orchestra

The Fortis Terrestis Orchestra is a great looking dress watch with an abundance of style. This watch has a 40mm stainless steel case and complimentary silver dial. Although this Swiss mechanical timepiece is marked 5ATM (50 metres water resistance) it is recommended to keep it away from water all together if possible.

 Zeppelin 100 Years

The Zeppelin 100 Years is a stylish watch that offers a lot of bang for your buck. What makes this timepiece so distinctive is the meticulous silver dial with contrasting black numerals. However, just like the Fortis Terrestis Orchestra, this watch is also only resistant to a depth of 50 metres and therefore isn’t suitable for swimming or bathing.
