    Is the SUB5000T tested according to ISO 6425 diver standard???

    Hi,

    I am thrilled of the new SUB 5000T but...

    is it ISO 6425 rated?

    This standard is what seperates the boys from the men
    in respect to "true tool diver" watches.

    The main test is 125% of written depth for 2 hours!!

    That means it would be tested to 6250 ft for 2 hours
    in a pressure chamber.

    Any input on above? DOXA are you hear?

    Also what about the tech specs....
    weight, diameter, crystal thickness, backside thickness, height??

    Lets get some answers put up asap.

    Tks

    How really, truly important are those standards to the market out there I wonder?

    I'm not sure how important ISO rating is for this watch... even if it fails at half its rated depth it still deeper than anyone would ever need!

    All depth rating means to me is that the watch has more water-resistance measures in place and that it is much less likely to flood while diving.

    I was watching Mike Fletcher and the Seahunters the other night and he dove to 100m. Not even close to the depth rating of the 5000T, and that was some DEEP diving.
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Let's not forget the now famed magazine test (printed in two separate magazines nearly a year apart), where a 750T was tested beyond it's maximum depth. While the watch stopped functioning when substantially beyond it's rated depth, it maintained it's water tight integrity. It also resumed functioning as depth was lessened to nearer it's rated depth.

    May not be relevant to the 5000T, or to ISO testing standards, but I'd call that a pass.
    Regards, T Bone.

    Here's a fascinating website by an ex-Royal Navy/offshore commercial diver, he mentions taking his Rolex Submariner down beyond its rated depth. Really interesting stuff!

    I had a look at that page. The Uncle John is now a Cal-Dive vessel and when I was on a job two years ago I seen her nearby lots of times. I have a good friend who has been in saturation on the Uncle John and that is the same bell from other pictures I have seen. Cal-Dive needs to put that system in dry dock to refurbish it badly from what I have heard.

    Cool page.
