  Water resistance is an important feature of a watch that provides a protection against water. So understanding the water resistant rating is especially important for buyers. In this blog post, we will explain watch water resistant meaning, study water resistant chart, distinguish water resistant vs waterproof, and help you choose the right watch for your needs. Let’s go into the world of water resistant watch.

Table of Contents

What does water resistant mean

   Water resistance is the ability of a watch to withstand water to a certain extent. It is important to note that water resistance does not guarantee that the watch is completely waterproof. Water resistance can only mean that it guaranteed the watch to be waterproof for a certain period or under certain conditions. If you want to know the water resistance rating of your watch, you can check the case back or dial for the words WATER RESISTANT. Watch manufacturers will produce different water resistance ratings for their watches to meet the needs of different customers.

Watch water resistance chart

  Watch water resistance chart outlines the different water resistance ratings in atmospheric pressure (ATM). Each ATM rating indicates the pressure a watch can withstand without water penetrating the case. Let’s inspect the different water resistant rating.

Watch water resistance chart

0ATM/0 BAR/O M/0ft

    0ATM water resistant watch are not suitable for wearing in any water and should be kept away from wet environments. Some unscrupulous watch makers will glamorize a 0ATM water resistant as a water resistant construction watch.

1ATM/1 BAR/10 M/33ft

   1 ATM water resistant watch can withstand a depth of 10 meters and are suitable for rain or accidental splashes, but cannot be submerged in water. The water resistant of cheap plastic and alloy watches are 0 ATM or 1 ATM. but watches manufacturers will not test 0ATM water resistant watches, but will test 1ATM watch by water testing instrument.

3ATM/3BAR/30 M/100ft

  3ATM water resistant watch can withstand minor flooding, such as hand washing or light rain. They are not suitable for swimming or diving. 3ATM watch is suitable for everyday use. They can withstand splashes and raindrops. However, they are not suitable for prolonged immersion in water.

5ATM watch

5ATM/5BAR/50 M/165ft

   You can swim or snorkel with 5ATM water resistant watch but is not suitable for intense water activities such as scuba diving. If your watch says it’s 5 ATM water resistant, it’s almost identical to a 3 ATM watch, so 5 ATM watches are only good for everyday life as well. They are resistant to splashes and raindrops. Some people may tell you that 5 ATM watches can take a shower, but it’s really not recommended because hot water can cause the water resistant ring to expand causing water to enter the watch case and damage the movement, watch hand and other parts of a watch.

    Also, the maximum water resistance of alloy watches is 5 Bar. If you want to make a watch with higher water resistant requirement, the case material is usually stainless steel, tungsten steel and other hard materials, and the watch glass cannot be acrylic crystal.

10ATM/10BAR/100 M/330ft

  The 10 ATM watch is appropriate for recreational diving and water sports, but not for deep diving.

  The case material of 10bar watches is at least 316L stainless steel. In addition, the crown of 10 ATM water resistant watches is screw down and the watch crystal is sapphire crystal or sapphire coating thickened mineral glass.

20ATM/20BAR/200 M/660ft

  20 ATM watch can withstand greater water pressure and are suitable for swimming, surfing and diving.


   Similarly a 20 ATM water resistant watch requires a screw down crown and case back, and the watch glass must be sapphire crystal and thicker than a 10 ATM watch to withstand heavier underwater pressure. 20 ATM water resistance is a feature of dive watches. To make it easier to read the time in the deep sea, a 20 ATM diver’s watch is usually equipped with a full lume dial watch or watch hand lume. The strap material is usually water resistant, such as rubber, silicone or stainless steel.

30ATM/30BAR/300 M/990ft

  30 ATM watch are highly water resistant and can withstand extremely deep water pressures, making them ideal for professional divers. A 30ATM watch requires a helium escape valve for deep-sea diving, besides the features mentioned for a 20ATM watch.

Waterproof vs water resistant

   Although the terms “water resistant” and “waterproof” are sometimes used interchangeably, it is necessary to clarify the difference. Water resistant watches are resistant to water, as showed by the ATM rating. On the other hand, while a “waterproof” watch should theoretically be water resistant. But no watch is guaranteed to be permanently waterproof. Not only are watches not permanently waterproof, but other products such as waterproof cell phones also fall under the same category. They can only be waterproof for a specific period or under certain conditions.


Trusted Water Resistant Watch Supplier- Watchessy

   When buying a waterproof watch, it is vital to choose a trustworthy watch supplier. Watchessy is a reputable watch manufacturer that offers watches with different water resistant rating to ensure that customers can find the best watch for them. In addition, if entrepreneurs want to start a watch company, then they should choose watchessy, watchessy can help customers to choose the right watch accessories to achieve the desired waterproof rating watch while minimizing the cost.

  In the world of watches, the crown is one of the most important watch parts, usually on the right side of the case. It not only enhances the appearance of the watch but also serves as a link between the movement and the outside world. The crown has 3 basic functions: adjusting the time/date/date of the day, winding the watch, and making the watch water resistant. The crown plays a vital role in maintaining the water resistance of the watch, because apart from the case, watch strap, caseback, and watch crystal, the crown is the most susceptible to water ingress, as it is frequently used. In order to keep a water resistant watch, watch manufacturers favor Screw down crown.

    This blog post will detail what a screw down crown is, how to adjust a screw down crown watch, and the difference between a screw down crown and a push down crown. By the end of this guide, you will clearly understand this important component in watchmaking.

What is a screw down crown

  A screw down crown watch is a mechanical device that helps ensure the water resistance of a watch, prevents dust from entering the interior of the watch, and slows down the movement. The screw down crown watch is usually on the right side of the case, and users can unscrew and pull it out to adjust the time, date, or other functions of the watch. When not in use, the crown screws back into the case to form a waterproof seal.

What is a screw down crown

    A watch screw down crown provides additional waterproof protection. When you screw down the crown into the case, it forms a tight seal between the crown and the case. Active When you screw the crown into the case, the threads interlock and a waterproof sealing gasket forms a tight seal, preventing water from entering the watch if it is submerged or exposed to moisture. This feature is important for diving watch, as it ensures that the watch will function properly even in underwater environments, where a ring of mist or water would otherwise appear in the middle of the watch face.

Screw down crown

How to adjust a watch screw down crown

     Adjusting a screw down crown watch requires a few simple steps to ensure the watch functions accurately. Below is a step-by-step guide:

  1. Before operating the screw down crown, it must be unlocked. Unscrew the crown until it is free from the watch case. Be careful not to use force as this may damage the threads.
  2. To set the time/date: After unscrewing the crown, you can pull it out to the desired position. To adjust the time, pull it out to the first position and to adjust the date (if applicable), pull it out to the second position.

   3.Screwing back the crown: After making the adjustments, nuzzle the crown back into the case and then tighten the crown clockwise until snug. Ensure that we fully screwed it down to maintain water resistance.

Screw down crown vs push

  Push crown are freely movable with an O-ring and are the choice for most casual watches. Although both types of crowns have the function of setting the watch, there are significant differences between screw down crown vs push:

   1. Water Resistance: Screw down crown is more water resistant than push-down crowns. The threaded design creates a secure seal for water-related activities. .

  2. Convenience: Push-crown is often simpler and faster to operate as they do not need to be unscrewed and screwed back. It’s perfect for everyday use watches that don’t need to withstand extreme water temperatures.

Conclusion-Screw down crown

   In conclusion, the screw down crown is an indispensable part of your watch to ensure its water resistance and functionality. By understanding how to adjust the screw-down crown and the difference between a screw-down crown and a push-down crown, you can make an informed decision when choosing the right watch for you. Remember to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper use and care of your watch to maintain its integrity.

How to wind a pocket watch

how to wear a pocket watch

    Most pocket watches are mechanical movements that need to be wound to provide power, so it’s necessary to learn how to wind a pocket watch. The first step is to pull out the crown, push the crown forward with your thumb, rotate the watch hand clockwise for 30 to 40 revolutions, stop when you feel resistance. And then press the crown back to its normal position. It is important not to overwind the watch, as this can damage the internal mechanism.

    It is recommended to wind a mechanical pocket watch once a day to ensure its accuracy. However, the frequency of winding may vary depending on the specific model and its power reserve.

How to open a pocket watch

   Before opening the pocket watch, you need to prepare some tools. First, we need a small screwdriver in order to remove the back cover of the pocket watch. Second, ensure that a clean cloth or gloves are used to prevent any damage or contamination to the pocket watch.

Firstly, locate the back of the pocket watch

   The back cover of a pocket watch is usually located at the back of the case and needs to be opened in order to perform operations such as repairing or replacing the battery. The location of the back cover may vary slightly from pocket watch to pocket watch, but it can usually be found by looking at the back of the case.

Secondly, opening the back cover

    To open the front or back, hold the bezel (side) with one hand, and with the other hand hold a thin-bladed knife, gently rotate it over the lip of the case and push it inward, gently popping off the bezel or back cover with the knife. Then, carefully remove the back cover from the case with your fingers or a screwdriver, being careful not to use too much force as this may damage the internal parts of the pocket watch.


    A pocket watch is a timeless accessory that exudes elegance and sophistication. Knowing how to wear and operate a pocket watch properly can enhance your style and add to your unique appeal. Whether you are an antique enthusiast or a watch collector, understanding the history and mechanics of pocket watches will enhance your appreciation of these exquisite devices.

Currently, since NH34 was only released last year, there is no NH34B movement for the time being, meaning no update has taken place.

Nh34 price

   The NH34 price is roughly $50 USD, so nh34 watch typically costs $100 to $200 USD.

Nh34 vs nh35

   Nh34 and nh35 movements are both automatic mechanical movements manufactured by Seiko Instruments. They have many similarities, but also some key differences.

 Date Display

     Nh34 movement has a date wheel at 4:30 and the NH35A has a date wheel at 3 o’clock. This results in an original position of the dial and hands in the watch model.

Stem height difference

   The stem is used for the part of the movement that is connected to the crown and the case. The stem height is 7.50 mm for the NH34A and 6.00 mm for the NH35A. This may affect compatibility with some case and crowns, as the stem height must match the case and crown specification.

 Watch hand quantity

  Nh35 movement is a 3-hand movement, while the nh34 is a 4 hand movement with an additional GMT seceond hand.

Different bezels or dial

  NH34 watch is usually equipped with 24 hour bezel or 24 hour dial, which is convenient for travelers to read the time in different time zones. The NH35 does not have this special requirement.
