Important note about water-resistant watches

  • There can be confusion with the meaning of water resistance ratings on watches. If marked with 50 metres or five ATM this doesn't mean that it can be used at depths of 50 metres, but the rating refers to the amount of pressure the watch can withstand. At five ATM, the watch can be worn while swimming in shallow water or while showering. It is also splash- and rain-resistant. It is not recommended to wear water-resistant watches in a hot shower, sauna or hot tub. The extreme heat can damage them.
  • RNIB water-resistant watches CW229EXP (men's expanding strap), CW229 (men's crocodile strap), CW230EXP (ladies' expanding strap) and CW230 (ladies' crocodile strap) specify five ATM, so are suitable for the activities described above.
  • To maintain water resistance, ensure that the crown remains pushed in and the time isn't set while in water as this can allow moisture into the watch. After swimming it is recommended to rinse the watch so there isn't build-up of salt or chlorine – which could cause irritation.
