In recent market, there are a series of watches with beautiful styles and creative designs. The diving watch is a kind of special, creative and unique watches. In most times, diving watches are used by divers. It is said that divers usually work in the dark sea. As a matter of fact, ordinary water-proof watches are not diving watches and there are special requirements and standards about diving watches. It is wrong that a watch with strong water-proof function is a diving watch. In view of this, diving watches have a higher drainage function so that it can be used in dark sea to look at the luminous pointer in a certain degree.
There are some unique features about diving watches. On the one hand, diving watches are used normally in the dark sea. On the other hand, there is a rotating outer ring
in a diving watch and it can be used to measure the diving time accurately. Thirdly, the diver has been in dark water usually so the diving watches’ pointers, scale or surface must be covered with fluorescent material, in this case, it is easy to read when the diver is in the dark water. If some watches are similar as diving watches, they can not be used as diving watches for they are hard to stand the pressure of deep sea. Outwardly, if the watches are in line of specifications, standards and testing of ISO in international organization, such watches can be named diving watches. In a word, diving watches are special and unique and they are quite different from water-proof watches. Due to their features and standards, they can be used in dark sea. When you plan to purchase a diving watch, it is wonderful for you to know clearly about it in advance.
