Is waterproofing important for a watch?

Waterproof watch cent is ordinary waterproof and professional waterproof. Ordinary waterproof watches can only prevent water splash, and professional waterproof watches can withstand different depth of water immersion. The waterproof of the watch depends on the waterproof of the watch mirror, the back cover, and the waterproof rubber rings at the top of the watch to reach the corresponding standards.

All WATER resistant meters are stamped with the words "WATERRESISTANT" or "WATER PROOF" on the bottom cover. Watch without waterproof mark only can prevent dust, should avoid to touch water. A 30m-meter (3ATM) water meter (3 atmospheres) water meter can be used in daily grooming or rain, i.e., water droplets are only splashed on the surface without any water pressure added to the meter. The 50-meter water meter water meter can be used for swimming and general housework, and the 100-meter water meter can be used for swimming, diving and other underwater work.
