An exhaustive explanation concerning the waterproofness of watches for men and women to clarify the indications often engraved on the bottom of box watches.
Often confronted with the questions as for the waterproofness of a watch in store it seemed to us necessary to clairifier this established fact.
A tight watch without other indication only means that this product resists the spatters of the water but can be immersed on no account in the water.
A watch for example the manufacturer of which says that it is tight to 3 ATM or 30 meters is not absolutely resistant under the water in this depth.
Indeed, it is practically impossible to come down under the water with this type of watch.
We joined you this below a board which recapitulates the possibilities of your watch to compare with the indications of the manufacturer.
