scuba diving with PAM390

Jul 19, 2012,00:07 AM
 

Tested the PAM390 scuba diving.  funny thing happened, two guys with nice watches, a rolex hulk and a patek nautilus 5711 left their watches in the van!  I could kind of understand the nautilus because you could probably scratch the shiny bezel by touching a fish or some coral but the rolex hulk with its ceramic bezel should surivive anything short of a full on shark attack.  Plus Id be more scared of theft from leaving a 25k watch in a stranger's van than taking my nautical timepiece under water.

Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'

Full time to floatin'
Under the sea


 

one nice thing about having an elven wrist is that you dont need an extension strap for wearing the watch over a wetsuit

And do not forget: hairlines and scratches will give to your toolwatch some character, so don't worry too much! Best, Nicolas

regardless of the brand, it's much better than having your wrist chomped off by an inquisitive barracuda (every diver know barracudas, the acquatic Magpies, love...glittering things). Besides who needs to know what time it is, during a dive? :-) Ciao - Se... 

Rather dive with pro dive watch

No markings for 15 minutes decompression time before surfacing. I always dive with proper diving watches... I have a Pam 390 too but I don't need to show to fishes I have a Panerai...

Totally agree...

... with Ianmar. Such a beauty, but a diver's watch for the ... bath!

Thanks for the report
