Yes, it’s totally fine to be keen on knowing what the best AAA replica Breitling dive watches are without having any intention of ever actually using them for diving. Splashing around in the pool? Sure. Descending to the Mariana Trench? Perhaps not.
Here, to help you investigate, whatever your reason for opting into the dive watch trend, is our ultimate guide to what you need to look for, what you should (and shouldn’t) be buying, any other deep and pressing questions you might be fathoming, plus the best US fake Breitling dive watches to buy.
What is a dive watch?
Though the vast majority of dive 1:1 Breitling replica watches have now been superseded in functionality by dive computers, dive watches were originally used by divers to calculate the amount of time spent underwater – important when you’re dealing with oxygen tanks with limited supply. Technically speaking, a dive watch is a timepiece that can withstand a minimum water-resistance of 10 atm (the equivalent of around 100 metres). Where most dive-ready timepieces these days will be able to reach minimum depths of 200-300 metres, some can go as deep as 20,000 feet below the surface of the sea – the CX Swiss Military Watch being a case in point. Those at the shallower end of the dive spectrum should be used for more recreational scuba diving, snorkelling and swimming, while technical divers will require something with greater resistance.
Which characteristics define a dive watch?
There are many characteristics that define a true dive watch. Firstly, most dive watches will feature a rotating bezel, which allows the diver to easily measure elapsed time. Your dive watch will most likely also feature a long rubber strap, making it both suitable for underwater use and for wear over a wetsuit. What’s more, the high quality Breitling copy watches should be finished with luminous hands and indices in order to make them both readable at depth. Another useful thing to have is a helium escape valve, which allows for the safe release of potentially damaging helium in the watch. This builds up as divers go deeper underwater. If your dive watch is particularly fancy, you may also have a built-in depth sensor. Other key characteristics include a screw-in crown and case-back finished with rubber seals, and an extra-thick crystal (occasionally domed) to deal with all the extra pressure. Phew.
Are dive watches actually waterproof?
Dive watches are always only water-resistant to the depth stipulated on the watch. Take them any depth below that and not only will your cheap Breitling replica watches not be water-resistant, but it will be broken. What you can rely on, however, is that if you use your dive watch (resistant, as we know, to a minimum of 100-metre depth) for recreational swimming, you shouldn’t have a problem (although try and avoid the bath or shower, where excessive humidity can present problems of their own). Remember: most diving watches are able to go deeper than humans themselves can go, so you should, invariably, be fine in most scenarios.
