Case Diameter

The watch case diameter is the width of the watch. The width is measured from the 9 o'clock to the 3 o'clock but does not include the crown.

Water Resistance

Water-resistance is the ability to resist the penetration of water to a certain degree. Waterproof means that water is not allowed to pass through it. At this time Timex only sells water-resistant watches.

Most Timex watches come with a water-resistant rating of: 30m (meters), 50m, 100m or 200m. Here are the activities each of those ratings allow:

30m: Washing hands.
50m: Washing hands, Light swimming.
100m: Washing hands, Light swimming, Snorkelling, Poolside Diving, Surfing.
200m: Washing hands, Light swimming, Snorkelling, Poolside Diving, Surfing, Recreational Scuba Diving.

To maintain water resistance, do not press any buttons under water unless your watch is indicated as 200m water-resistant.

Watches labeled water-resistant without a depth indicated can withstand splashes and rain, but should not be submerged.

Another rating used to measure water resistance is Atmosphere (ATM) ratings. Below is a guide to corresponding WR and ATM ratings.

In this guide, we’ll dive into the world of dive watches and diver-inspired watches, exploring their features, benefits, and why they’re an excellent choice of men’s watches for you.

What is a Dive Watch?

Let’s first acknowledge what a dive watch is. A dive watch, known for its stylish appearance and functionality, is a must-have accessory for adventurers and sports enthusiasts. Designed to be water-resistant and capable of recording elapsed time underwater, dive watches prioritize legibility and luminosity in low or no-light conditions. With a minimum water resistance of 100m, these timepieces have a rotating bezel and durable straps for secure wear.

Dive Watches vs. Diver-Inspired Watches: What’s the Difference?

While true dive watches need to meet strict guidelines set by the International Organization for Standardization and can cost thousands of dollars, diver-inspired watches provide a more affordable alternative without compromising on style and functionality. Retaining the nautical feel of a dive watch, diver-inspired watches offer a perfect blend of fashion and practicality at a fraction of the price.
