    As a guy who doesn’t get anything rated less than 100M wet I can’t help you.

    That's why people have posted underwater photos of dive watches—simply to show what they look like underwater. Other than that, why would anyone feel the need to post photos of dive watches underwater? We know they can go underwater without any problems.

    But we don’t know if water resistant watches can, despite what their water depth rating suggests. So it would be informative for collectors to know this in case they want to buy a particular model.

    So any underwater photos of such watches would demonstrate they they are indeed water resistant and in some cases even "dive-resistant".

    I agree.

    Photos of watches that can go to a depth of 30 meters don’t seem to have been tested that much in real world underwater scenarios—at least the photo evidence for this is lacking, or very rare.

    I’ve seen countless threads here of people posting photos of dive watches underwater but not photos of 30 meter watches (including Seiko dress watches, Timex field watches etc).

    This thread could prove very useful in that respect.
