Diving watches are purchased for two reasons. if you scuba dive without a computer, then a dive watch is your primary tool for keeping time and for keeping you safe. If you are a diver and you dive with a computer, then your diving watch is a secondary or backup timing device. Diving watches are crucial gear for a safe dive and must be precise and reliable. The second reason for purchasing a Divers Watchis, wearing a dive watch makes a statement. Images of adventure, extreme sports, and risk-taking, flash before your eyes. A diving watch is a watch designed for underwater diving that features, as a minimum, a water resistance greater than 10 ATM, the equivalent of 100 meters (330 feet). The typical diver's watch will have a water resistance of around 200 - 300 meters (660 - 990 feet), though modern technology allows the creation of diving watches that can go much deeper. A true diver's watch is in accordance with ISO 6425, which defines test standards and features for watches suitable for diving with underwater breathing apparatus in depths of 100 m or more. Watches conforming to ISO 6425 are marked with the word DIVER'S to distinguish diving watches from lookalike watches that are not suitable for actual scuba diving. Early dive watches were often developed in response to military and professional needs. Omega SA probably deserves the honor of having created the world's first diving watch, with the Omega "Marine," introduced in 1932. The Rolex Submariner was introduced at the Basel Watch Fair in 1954 which coincided with the development of self-contained underwater breathing apparatus, known as scuba.. The vast majority of divers now use electronic , wrist-worn dive computers by manufacturers such as Suunto Uwatec, Mares, Pelagic and Seiko. Citizen Divers Watchesare however still commonly used by divers as a back-up instrument for overcoming dive computer malfunctions. Many contemporary sports watches owe their design to diving watches. The standards and features for diver's watches are regulated by the International Organization for Standardization in the ISO 6425 standard. The watch cases of diving watches must be adequately water(pressure) resistant and be able to endure the galvanic corrosiveness of seawater, so the cases are generally made out of materials like stainless steel, titanium, ceramics and synthetic resins or plastics. The case must also provide an adequate degree of protection against external magnetic influences and shocks, though diver's watches do not have to be able to endure strong magnetic fields and shocks.
