I've been looking at the Traser & Luminox ranges of watches. I think that unless I can find a great deal on a second hand one, I can only afford the basic Traser P6500 or Luminox 3001-Navy Seals I (plastic case) series.
I prefer the P6500 face and 'non'-Navy Seals face, but the watch is only rated to 30m (100 feet) water resistance, whereas the (supposed) 'exactly the same'-cased Luminox is rated to 200m (660 feet). Both have a case back held with four screws, so how can the depth rating vary so much? A member of another watch forum in the UK had his P6500 pressure tested to 100m a while ago, but is that a fluke?
Has anybody else got a Traser which they wear regularly in the shower/swimming/in shallow water who can tell me whether they stand-up to harder abuse?
Thanks for any help!
