    Sort of defeats the point of a wrist watch. I love the idea of the electronica but if i can not use it outside if it is raining there is little point to it.
    Also when i am working outside in the summer it is hot and i have had watches mist up inside from the amount i am perspiring, so even on a dry day water resistance is important.
    If I fail to reply to your inane post just assume you are on the ignore list.

    Wristwatches were commonplace for decades before they developed waterproofing (or shockproofing) and somehow people managed just fine. One might as well say 'It kind of defeats the purpose of a wristwatch if it isn't a Vostok.'

    (and yes I do realize that there are some members of this forum who would say something like that)

    On their blog they show the rain test they perform on the watches, here a nice Belarussian lady shows the procedure:

    As you can see it's a standard test with droplets falling at 1ATM pressure, therefore it appears the watch is safe in the rain but not submerged or under a shower.

    I think perspirating is more an issue for the back of the brass case, many vintage Russian watches look worn out because of this, with the SS case they should be more durable.

    As a general comment, I agree it would be better to get a 5ATM or 10ATM watch as the Electronika 55 is a good module with 24h stopwatch that would like to use it in gym, however at the moment they are offering this SS case which is definitely an improvement from the standard Electronika they offer.

    I was only joking comrades, I have no idea what rain spray means. I assume it means rainfall.
    The watch should be fine in the rain if you use an umbrella.Name:  laughter (1).gif

    Love that spray cabinet they use, looks so home made. That answers the question though and I would be happy with that .

    Please appreciate all the testing equipment seems to be taken from 1981 or so, almost like from a time machine...however I hope people are more reassured from the WR of these watches (1ATM?).

    They are checking internally to communicate price, number of watches and lead time for this option.
