    Two-Handed Backhand a Shock Issue for Nice Automatic?

    I just went off the deep end and bought myself a really nice automatic watch, an Air King, and I'm wondering if the impact of a hard-hit two-handed tennis backhand is an issue. Thoughts?

    I play leauge and tournament tennis 3-4 days per week and also hit a two handed backhand. I wear a Sub LV, Oris and have worn Omegas, and have never had an issue.

    While swinging/hitting the ball is probably OK, I'd be concerned what would happen if the ball were to hit the watch.

    If an automatic spoils cos it can't take shocks from sports,then u wouldn't want such a watch any way. Looks like it's a win-win situation ;)

    I've worn Ebel Quartz Discoverys 24/7 for about 15-20 years. Done everythign with them on: swimming, snorkling, scuba, lots and lots of tennis, weight training, fly fishing trips to tropic saltwater flats, etc...and they all keep on ticking.

    I don't think you'll have a problem.
    Lots of dive watches.

    Yes, like a mechanical watch is going to survive a game of football or basket ball...

    If one is wearing a watch of most any kind during a FB or BB game, I ask them to take it off. They are contact sports, and as a former intramural rugby player, Ive seen enough damage dished out without any help from watches, rings, what have you.
