I mainly only collect Diver or diver style watches and yet have never been on a dive in my life in fact I even take my watch off when I wash the pots just so that it does not get wet ....... is that an OCD scratch

I understand where you are coming from I mean a watch with 100m on the front should be ok up to a depth of 100m but I doubt that a single figure throughout the brands would work also pretty difficult to instigate .. for example who would be the authorising party that would decide what unit is to be used and what that unit would represent.

the only dive watches to truly consider are ISO rated, any others are just watches that can get wet so anyone diving with them do so at their won risk, probably 99% of dive watch purchases whether ISO rated or not will never get used for what they were intended so not really an issue IMO......real divers will only use the real thing as lives depend on it
