    That's an expensive test expedition,,, great to see the watch can stand 3x the rating...

    i dont know the point of the test, since no human can go wearing any dive watch i that depth anyway without being in a special submariner capsule or something anyway.


    they might make the crystal much thicker latter and we'll see people walking with these even more bulky dive watch with 5000m-6000m rating and 20mm thick with a suite =).

    So, the result of this experience was that we can't trust a watch if it is supposed to be used beyond its own specifications?! I would never have guessed...

    yeah back to the definition of 'used' and 'ab-used' (abnormal-used) hehehe..

    i've seen torture test for watches, like smashing g-shock as hard as one can to wall or concrete just to test its shock resist , or roll a car over it, boil it, burn it and so on.. nothing interest me.., i much prefer if they put the watch on their wrist - and do the test hehehe.. see if the wrist/wearer survive as good as the watch =P

    Well, they could start doing these tests on all watches rated 1000m and above to see which are the "Most Over-engineered".

    The winning model's sales will spike and a race to see who manages to have the highest "actual" depth rating will then ensue.

    That's why I wear this when I swim:



    When the second hand stops running, it's a good warning sign to head to the surface. I don't want my crystal to break!!
