I never swim in any watch or expose any watch
In Response To: O.GMT and Leaks ()

No matter what their level of water resistance is, or if the seals are new or not. The only watch I don't take off near water is my Timex ironman, and I don't care if it stops working or not! Reccomended service should be adheard to, and not taken lightly. I think the key word in watch ratings is RESISTANT, not Proof. I agree people seem to think their expensive watches are indestructable, and should never need service. I think Derek is right, alot of the fault is some of the watch companies. Just my opinion Regards, Sonny (never had a moisture problem yet) Dryer
