Another impressive looking watch to add to your collection. I do like the large numerals on the dial and the hands which are easy on the eye for checking the time.

When it says it has 1000 foot WR does that mean each watch will have been pressure tested to make sure it complies with that specification? I’m just curious as for the majority of people it’s unlikely it would ever be needed and therore it isnt put to the test by the wearer.

i know some makers test every watch for WR, but i dont know with this maker, its more likely they test an amount out of each batch to keep an eye on QC although 99% will probably never see water Very Happy

That would make sense and given that spec is printed on the dial there would have to be some form of checking to ensure compliance. It’s not something that could be verified by most users though no doubt some watchmakers would have the equipment to pressure test it if required. Very Happy

i have a friend with the equipment for testing WR and i got him to test a cheap diver with 200m WR years ago just to see what it would really take and the seals held to just under 500m..nearly 300m over spec, i think it was an old pulsar, i think a lot of so called divers watches are built to a known spec without testing as they work on paper, but i would imagine the likes of Seiko test every watch as anything they make 200m and over are classed as ISO spec
