don't dive with this watch
on April 9, 2011
I've bought this scubadiver's watch with the intention of diving about 3 months ago brand new for a good price with a stainless steel bracelet expendable for wetsuit, I've also purchased the optional black rubberband.
It is supposed to be waterproof to 300m. One day after doing 3 dives in less than 8m of fresh water I noticed water droplets on the crystal inside the watch. I never touch the watch when underwater or when still wet on shore. I took it for servicing, it is guaranteed for 2 years. Got it back after 10days, nothing was said about the watch besides saying it is repaired. I don't dive or ever take a shower with this watch anymore.
Accuracy, one of the most accurate quartz watch I've bought yet, needs a few seconds adjustments once or twice a year.
Background light is often used in darker environments.
Construction of good quality, chrome finish and saphire crystal appears to be hard to dammage
Feels heavy and confortable to wear
Not a functional dive watch, crown does not screw in making it more vulnerable for water penetration
LCD hard to read and requires more light
Rubberband supplied to this watch is too small, won't fit over a wetsuit, the 2 rubber rings that hold the strap fall off
