Tips for Maintaining Water Resistancy
Timepieces are classified by their degree of water resistance, which roughy translates to the following (1 meter = 3.28feet).
30 meters (3 ATM , 100 ft) Will withstand rain or splashes of water and accidental immersion, but should not be worn while showering, swimming or diving.
50 meters (5 ATM, 165 ft) Suitable for showering or swimming in shallow water.
100 meters (10 ATM, 330 ft) Suitable for swimming or snorkeling.
500 meters (50 ATM, 1650 ft) Appropriate for serious deep water diving.
