All water resistant watches that we build or customize are carefully assembled and tested. Seals are examined, set and lubed with DC7 waterproof grease and subject to a simple waterproofness test. We offer optional pressure testing operations on divers watches up to 10ATM.
Due to possible customer mishap we are not responsible for any water damage and do not guarantee water resistance. Diver watches should be examined and pressure tested by a certified dive watch specialist prior to any diving activity for safety. Water resistance is not permanent. Gaskets around the crown, crystal, and case back are subject to wear. They can deteriorate in time and should be inspected periodically. Checking the gaskets in a general water resistant watch can often be just a visual inspection. The application of silicone lubrication can extend the life of the gaskets and can be applied during routine maintenance or service.
