    Test complete

    As you folks know, one of our members(ac/dc)posed the question of a watch surviving a cycle in the dishwasher. Well, I just happen to own a dishwasher, I also just happen to own a Rolex Sea Dweller. The dishwasher is a new Kitchen Aid, it takes water from your hot water heater, it then boils it internally, and washes the dishes with the boiling water. It also has a heat cycle that dries the dishes at about 200 degrees. What I did was take my Dweller, put it in the dishwasher on pot scrub, heavy duty, heat dry cycle. Here's the pics.............................



















    As you see, I opened the dishwasher during the wash cycle, checked the temp with an infrared thermometer, it was well over 200 degrees. I the opened it during the dry cycle, check out the steam. After a complete cycle, I took the watch out, which was almost to hot to hold, and rinsed it with cold water. Dried it off, and put it on my wrist. How's it running? Perfectly. There is no doubt in my mind that any modern dive watch would survive this. OK Jimmy Boy, I'll be down to Edisto to pick up my case of VO next week. Your comments or questions are welcome....Thanks....David

    Well done, David. I see no change from the usual here. Jim is still buying the VO. Y'all need help consuming it, don't hesitate to call.
    Alas, time stays, we go.

    Do you have any concern if there will be a refractory response on the gaskets now after exposing to high water heat? I am thinking it's possible the gaskets integrity was diminished and it could leak much earlier than their service interval now (maybe?)
    On the other hand if they make the gaskets in material not unlike o-rings in a car motor, they will be just fine, right? Right.

    mmmm, clean. I think you should have used the spot free rinse cycle though. Good job, I think many people forget just what a quality dive watch can withstand. Maybe I'll put my DOXA in the dishwasher. Then again, maybe I won't ... - David

    Besides the same profession you and I have the same dishwasher and countertops. My father is from Ga. Any chance you have a Miller ancestor?
