    Skin Diver Magazine Casio article from 1981

    Thought you guys might be interested in this article from 1981. Just a little more fuel for the endless 'don't get any water on your 50M/100M/200M watch' argument. Thanks to Riley for resizing this for me.
    Cheers, Greg

    It's an interesting read. Sounds like there was a big controversy over these watches in the dive community back then.

    It goes well with this current post:

    Very interesting. I didn't realise the alarm would be audible under water.

    You really do learn something new every day.

    Thanks for the article. Ill be printing a hard copy for my archives.

    Interestingly, the sound of your alarm will not only be just as loud under water as above, but the frequencies will travel farther. The next time you are swimming, have a friend take your watch a distance away and have them sound the alarm. You will be surprised with the results. I have experimented with this test in an Olympic size pool and I could hear the alarm from opposite ends of the pool as if it were right beside me.

    Thanks again for the article.

    He's referring to the vintage Marlins, which are collectors items, from the 80's. Still, with a decent gasket you might be able to dive them without problems.
