An inferior local wristwatch wouldn’t even be able to endure the water pressure fifty metres below surface, it has been confirmed.

Despite claiming to be 25 metres waterproof, the portable timepiece isn’t even really trusted an arms length underwater – and definitely wouldn’t last one day in the Australian Clearance Diving Team Four (one of two commissioned Clearance Diving Teams in the Royal Australian Navy).

The watch’s owner, Glenn, isn’t one for bragging. Especially when it comes to this watch. Instead he opts to mostly leave it sitting under the cuff of his shirt, only consulting it when he genuinely needs to know the time and doesn’t have his iPhone handy.

However Glenn says the timepiece is intended to be carried or worn by a person and is designed to keep working despite the motions caused by the person’s activities in day-to-day life, which shouldn’t really include deep-sea diving.

“A wristwatch is designed to be worn around the wrist, attached by a watch strap or other type of bracelet” he says

“A pocket watch is designed for a person to carry in a pocket – neither of these things need to accompany you on a diving expedition”

However, Glenn’s mates say he is just trying to make up for buying a shit watch.
