How Deep Can a Dive Watch REALLY Go? Deep Sea Chamber test!

How deep can you really dive with cheap dive watch from Amazon? We are going to use our deep sea / pressure chamber and test two diver's watch for their maximum depth / pressure! Our deep sea chamber goes all the way to 300 bars that equals 3 kilometers or 2 miles of depth so we can simulate conditions on bottom of the ocean in this experiment.




  • I just ordered the Vostok Amphibia which has been most requested watch to test with this. So subscribe the channel to see that one :D

    • @Mark Kuck The beauty of working with water is that since it's nearly incompressible, a rupturing container's pieces (cap for example) will not be accelerated. This is why a lot of pressure testing is done with water. With a gas on the other hand, the rupturing of a container is accompanied by the expansion of the pressurized gas. Because the gas needs to travel a certain distance as it expands (think of a pressurized gas bottle whose contents can expand to the size of a room), it accelerates fragments along with it. The water does not expand when pressure is released. Just imagine putting 100 tons of pressure on a block of steel. When you suddenly release the pressure, the block of steel doesn't expand. Just like the water inside the container.

  • Not a fair comparison, because the Citizen was mechanical. The other watch was a quartz. The quartz watch has much less moving parts.

  • Looked like on the second watch the pin for the seconds hand got pushed in the the seconds hand just dropped to gravity. I wonder if it still is ticking and if you could re-attach the seconds hand? You should get a timegrapher too to see how they work after a crush. Also the speed of crush and then decompress would turn even the most robust equipment into trash.

  • Try a CASIO digital watch. Let's try and convince the mechanical fans with "my mechanical watch is EMP proof" mentality to switch 😂. Im not gonna sacrifice multifunction digital timepieces for "EMP proof" mechanical watch. EMP doesn't happen everyday and I carry multiple tools/gadgets with EMP proof bags. You don't EDC a watch only anyway. If one tool or gadget fails, you have multiple tools and gadgets to compensate most of the time.

    • People like mechanical watches because they are mechanical, and a luxury item, not because they are better. The resurgence of Swiss watch making after the quartz crisis is a good example of that. Everyone knows a g shock is more accurate and more durable. But that's not why you buy a mechanical watch anymore.

    Isaac Joya GalvánIsaac Joya Galván3 päivää sitten
  • For the Citizen at 300M, I guess the pressure pushes the dials / components againts the escape wheel, which stops the watch. That would explain why it runs again afterwards, before it killed it. It's no good anyway to stop the balance wheel like that. But it's a good margin, considering water didn't leak inside at that pressure. It was compressed but still holding, to some extent. BUT some 200m rated watches can take far more than this rate in testing ( famously : Vostok, which is much cheaper ).

  • It's nice to see the watches exceed their advertised rating. The average buyer does not need a watch rated beyond 100 meters. Only if you are a diver, would you need a watch rated for those pressures. No human would survive unprotected at the depths they were testing.

    • My father once contacted a watch importer on his 100m watch having taken some moisture inside the casing during a swim. What he learned is that those '100m' '300m' markings are like codes that roughly mean 100m = you can have a swim with it and 300m = you can have an extensive swim or a some dive with it. The importer said it's much better to interpret those meters as distance from shore than water depth, lol.

    Wotan LauWotan Lau5 päivää sitten
  • From what I understand: Depth-ratings don't always mean you can take the watch to that specific depth underwater and expect it to survive. Especially on lower rated watches with depth-ratings under 200m. 30m/3 ATM on the basic plastic Swatch-watches doesn't mean you can take it to 30m and expect it to survive. Unless you're talking about ISO-certified dive-watches - then you *can* take the watch to the depth that's claimed on the dial. Doesn't mean you need a certified dive-watch to be able to take it swimming. If it's a model from a halfway competent manufacturer, I'd feel pretty safe with anything that has more than 200m on the dial - even for snorkelling or diving. If in doubt, one can always take it to a local watchmaker to check water-tightness and the state of the gaskets.
