    Re: Beater recommendations/water resistance question

    Love the Casio's being shown. Nice.
    I own 3 Casio's and all of them are rated 100-200m.

    But,,,,Any 100m WR watch will suffice for swimming.
    Lets just say the list of 100m rated watches is endless.
    Where do we start ? So many brands to choose from.
    My favorite is a Seiko Solar 100m WR for swimming.

    I did own a Pulsar 50m quartz that fogged up after a swim ??
    The screw down back needed a new gasket after 3 battery changes.
    Problem solved. Swim with it often now,,, and no issues.
    But, just a note that any quartz battery change requires careful gasket inspection to make sure the WR is maintained.

    impossible or unreliable.


    Although watches with screw down crown potentially more reliable if done right (second gasket under crown).
    It's not critique of choice just addition to discussion.
    That is a very good point, thankyou. I may be wrong, but I usually am more reassured by a watch that has a screw down crown, as that feature adds extra protection to one of a watches most vulnerable spots.

    Casio suggestions are excellent but I have had my Vostok in the pool with no issues but the crown is "wonky." So make sure it is sealed; Name:  6936D570-D899-4165-850D-3D2E65CB970B.jpeg

    100m of water resistance I think is not just fine for swimming, also for snorkeling, free diving and such.

    Screw down has same set of gaskets as regular crown and in case it old design/extra protection additional one at crown itself.
    Cheap watches have no additional gasket just regular set around the stem.
    Panerai is example of dive watches without screw down crown.

    So then you don't recommend wearing a 3 ATM watch out in the rain? or in a very humid environment? And is a 3 ATM WR actually 3 ATM underwater or only 2 ATM?
    And yeah I can see the comparison between a watch's water resistance and a truck carrying 25 tons over a 20 ton bridge, perfect analogy. Good to know that a bridge rated at a certain weight limit cannot be exceeded, man that is building to tolerances, right?
    The bridge example is a good one. The bridges are are over tolerance for many reasons. A bridge where I live is currently under going extensive maintenance and part of that is to clean up 400 tonnes of pigeon s**t. That's the equivalent of 230 cars piled on a 1/4 km span. There's a maximum load limit on bridges, not because they can't handle the vehicle loads, but because there are other forces that they must/may also handle at the same time. Wind, water, snow, bird poo... and the load of the truck. Add to that, wear and tear, aging and damage and I'm glad they're setting conservative (safe) weight limits on bridges.

    Watches are no different. If you want to settle on the lowest WR, maybe go talk to a watch maker about how much water damage he's seen over the course of his career.
