Best Of Water Proof Or Water Resistant Watches


If asked is your watch water proof or water resistant you might get confused. Most of the watches are marked as water resistant up to a certain capacity and can also be said as water proof. So what is this comparison all about? This is to clarify the meaning of water resistant vs. water proof.

With the new ISO standards The "Water Resistant" mark has come to replace the "Water Proof". Now if your watch is water resistant it is water proof to a certain extent. Actually both the marks mean the same thing to some extent. A water resistant watch is equivalent to water proof to a certain extent. This can be summarized with some figures

Watches are usually marked with one of the following ratings:

  • 30 Meters/100 Feet
  • 50 Meters/160 Feet
  • 100 Meters/300 Feet
  • 150 Meters/500 Feet
  • 200 Meters/660 Feet
  • 1000 Meters/3300 Feet
These however, do not generally indicate the point at which a watch's resistance to pressure is expected to fail. For example, a watch rated 30 Meters would not be expected to survive Scuba Diving to 30 Meters, but would be expected to survive light splashing, for example wearing in the shower.

This is how the water proof and water resistant marks are in general.
