WATER-RESISTANCE TO WATCH

 

The water tightness of the watch meets the standard DIN 8310 and ISO 2281st These standards describe the various types of water-tightness and the test procedure is determined by water leaks. Exceptions are the models, which do not have the words "Water Resist". These watches may not in any way come in contact with water.


Basically, the water resistance according to DIN 8310 / ISO 2281 is not a permanent feature, because the existing seals of the natural aging and wear. Extremely high and low temperatures, solvents and cosmetics accelerate this process is not ensured at the early seals are brittle and porous and the water tightness of the models. Clocks should be used in normal temperature ranges from about 10C ° to 50C °.


Scope: These standards apply to general use of wristwatches watches with a meter indication of the water resistance, however, cannot be directly used in these water depths, as it is the meter data for water tightness is merely a pictorial representation of the test pressure. A watch can withstand the influence of water on the clock with the specified static pressure (e.g. 10 bars) and the theoretical immersion in water at the given depth.


By movements in the water, such as a heated swimming movement or a blow on the water, the dynamic pressure caused beyond the specified static pressure is many times over and affect the entered water resistance.

 

 

Water resistance classification (3 ATM (BAR) / 30 M *) 


The Clock is tested for water resistance to 3 ATM (BAR), which is the pressure of an adopted water column of 30 meters corresponds to the capacity in one square centimeter. making it ideal for daily use such as Hand washing and rain.

 

 

Water resistance classification (5 ATM (BAR) / 50 M *) 


The Clock is tested for water resistance to 5 ATM (BAR), which adopted the pressure of a water column of 50 meters corresponds to the capacity in one square centimeter. This makes it ideal for daily use such as Bathing, showering or washing hands
