Top 5 Features to look for in a Dive Watch that SEIKO fulfils;
1. Versatile Design; fit for work and play
A well-designed dive watch will look great in nearly every outfit. Even if your dive watches clearly are on the sportier side of the style spectrum, a good one will be versatile enough to take the wearer from the sea into the ballroom.
2. Able to tell the time accurately without distortion even in the dark
Good dive watches must be designed for best readability underwater. The numbers must be clearly visible and easily readable, and the minute hand must be clearly distinguishable from the hour hand. If it has anti-reflective sapphire crystals, it will be even better as it can minimise underwater dial distortions.
3. Fulfill the ISO standard of 6425:1996
A true dive watch should conform to the ISO standard of 6425:1996, where a series of tests have been undertaken to ensure resistance to at least 100 meters depth.
4. Uni-Directional Bezel
The bezel should be uni-directional, and best if rotating counterclockwise, so that the bezel cannot be accidentally knocked off position in the clockwise direction and thus understate the elapsed time being measured.
Excellent dive watches must be able to withstand a higher external force, shock and water pressure when compared to other watches. Case and band material must be corrosion resistant; stainless steel, titanium, silicone and rubber are the materials that will ensure that the dive watches serve the users well.
The SEIKO Prospex roadshow located at the Centre Court in Mid Valley Megamall is ongoing until 21 January 2018.
