    Question Is there a marine watch with decent water resistance?

    Did anyone know if there exists a marine style watch with good enough water resistance (100m) for swimming? I’ve been enjoying my Steinhart Marine watch, but it’s only rated at 30m water resistance.

    Hirsch has several options for straps that still suit this style of watch whilst also being ‘waterproof’.

    An interesting read here:

    Through a route currently unavailable to my power of recall, I am the current custodian of this watch and I have to say that ine thing not made clear is that, in a Casio Edifice kind of way, his is one handsome watch for the money.
    And 1000m resistance should cover holiday swimming.....

    Well, there's the Breguet Marine series (e.g. https://www.thewatchsource.co.uk/Bre...E12%7E5v8.html ). All, I think, have 100m WR; not cheap, though!

    Also, of course, the Ulysse Nardin Marine Divers (e.g. https://www.thewatchsource.co.uk/Uly...0-3r%7E93.html ); 300m WR; about half the Breguet prices.

    The Aqua Series from Nomos is pretty interesting.
    Club: 100m WR
    Ahoi: 200m WR

    I never thought I’d say this, but Christopher Ward has some good looking watches. I particularly like the new Trident Diver range, which bridges the gap nicely between dress watches and divers.

    However, I wish they’d drop that awful logo!
