    Can you explain, or show me via a link, how the Luminor Marina Crown works in order to maintain a depth rating of 300m?

    Anyone have SCUBA diving shots of it underwater?

    I found this technical drawing of the Luminor crown system and its patent description...

    The documents are admittedly old, but I believe they'll give you the general idea of how the crown system works:

    I've put IMG links in the post instead since the patent text was too small to read.. :cheers:

    Would a Panerai Marina 300m, and really reliable for
    dive or do water sports as a Rolex Submariner?

    In my 312 manual says "If you do sports Aquatics, do
    annual review of the watch "
