Advice on Water Resistance
It is imperative that you understand the ATM (Atmospheres) ratings before watch is exposed to water. To start with, remember that water resistant watches are not water proof. A watch which is marked with water resistant rating of 5 ATM or 50 meters should not be expected to withstand a depth of 50 meters under water. These ratings are based on laboratory tests which show the ability of a watch to withstand pressure in a static condition (motionless water) and at specified depth. When swimming under water by wearer, the water pressure is obviously different due to arm movement as compared to pressure in static condition.
Manufactures have their own water resistant recommendations. Below are some general guidelines
We suggest you avoid submerging your watch in water unless it is water resistant to at least 10 ATM. Leather straps will also wear out sooner if exposed to water regularly. Exposure to sea water and sauna can also affect its water resistance. Deterioration will also occur as gasket is aged.
Watches should not be put in a sauna or a hot tub since the exposure to heat can easily make the gaskets lose their shape and ability to keep water and dust out.
Watches should not be worn in the bath/shower. The soap suds reduce the surface tension of the rubber gasket in the watch, which allows water to get in. The soap can also damage the seal itself. So we highly recommend you do not bathe with your watch.
