Water Resistance of a Watch

There are 3 points from where water can enter a watch.

  • Glass edges on top of the watch
  • Crown
  • Back of the watch

A watch must have high precision in its making to plug all these 3 points to make the watch water resistant. Glass needs to be of perfect dimensions and needs to be backed by a washer which expands under pressure and seals it. Likewise watch back besides being of accurate dimension also has to have a washer which seals the edges further. The same principle applies to the crown as well. For effective water resistance all these 3 aspects need to be perfect.


Water Resistance versus Water Proof

Water resistance is different than water-proof. The precision needed in water proof is even higher than water resistant watches. Water proof can offer protection even in 30 to 50 or even 100 meters of depth [where pressure of water is a lot higher]. Its ability to offer protection against water at varied depth is a function of precision of components.

Water resistance watch means that the watch will work fine even if one accidently wears it while taking a shower but it can be damage if one takes it for a swim [or will only hold good for shallow depths]. While a waterproof watch would mean that it will work fine even if one takes it for a swim or a dive.


All TZARO watches are water resistant for a depth of 30 meters.
