Getting a luxury watch does not mean that you are going to spend money on any luxury watch just because they are made by an important brand or manufacturer. You need to be aware of the fact that you should be looking for some special and key features before you even think about getting a luxury watch. Now, in this article, I want to specifically focus on the features you should be looking for if you are ever considering getting a dive watch. These watches are different from your regular luxury watches so, these are the characteristics you should look for when getting dive watches.
Now what should a dive watch should be equipped with?
There are some basic things luxury swiss dive watches should have to make then fit into the category of dive watches. A must have for these type of watches is there should have some sort of device that lets you pre select time periods which should be up to 60 minutes in most dive watches. Now, the watch’s bezel should have a 60 minute scale showing on the watch and this scale should have a mark every five minutes. I bet you just told yourself, dang, I think I remember owning a dive watch at one point in my life and I did not even realize I had one. I know I did!
Another key and obvious feature for this kind of watches is that they should be water proof since you are also going to be very involved with the water as you dive. Now, how can I know if my watch truly is water resistant? They should be able to be under 12 inches of water with no problem for at least 50 hours. Crazy right? Also, they should be able to resist temperatures that range from 64 degrees up to 77 degrees Fahrenheit.
Now, also another key factor that should be considered is that these watches should be able to somewhat resist falling on hard ground. This is called the shock resistance standard.
