    Did some searching, and this handy WR chart for various Omega models came up. From the website:

    Here is also a link to where the PDF file can be found on the site.

    Just nice to see officially in writing I think. Especially with watches like the Speedmaster, which are sports but not diver watches. Looks like there is no gray area here with regards to swimming.

    Cheers,

    That's good info, Carl! :thumbsup:

    Thanks for sharing! :goodpost:

    To add, interestingly the Omega Planet Ocean Chronograph (rated to 600m water resistance) has chrono pushers that - according to the Omega user manual - can be activated UNDER WATER without harming the watch.*

    Wow! Ability to operate push-pieces underwater is something pretty rare, far as I know. Although, not being a diver, I don't usually pay much attention to these things.

    The only other chronograph I know that allows full chronograph operation underwater is a Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chronograph. It has a specially designed magnetic push-piece system. I was quite interested in the watch at one time, because of the highly accurate quartz movement, which also has a time zone function.

    I saw a brand new Planet Ocean chronograph yesterday, with the new inhouse 9300 movement. Pretty gorgeous, and pretty large at over 45mm.

    There was also a brand new blue dial PO, with a real Liquid Metal ceramic blue bezel, with the inhouse 8500 movement. That is a great movement, which allows the hour hand to be changed independently without stopping the watch mechanism. Great for travellers.

    How did I get this far off the topic? :mouthtape:

    Cheers :cheers:

    You are correct, and that is true for pretty much all the Seamaster Professional line.

    To my knowledge, other than the Breitling M1 (which is superquartz and uses a magnetic pusher), the Seamasters are pretty much the only ones in that category.

    It's the first thing I hated about the Daytona. What's the point of a pusher if I have to unscrew the damn thing to use it?

    BTW... we already had this in the Omega Resources.

    Omeaga Water Resistance

    Maybe we should just merge the threads.

    I think that the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms chrono belongs to that small club of "super waterproof chronos", too.

    Totally agree about the screw-down pushers on the Daytona... imagine this scenario / dialogue:

    :rofl: :rofl:


    Good idea to merge the threads! Well spotted... go ahead and merge them.

    The Sinn U100 has underwater operation of pusher to 1000m ( page 12 of the manual)

    They also do an oil -filled Quartz model that's good to 12,000m. Trench diving anyone?

    It's not the same league in other respects to the Omegas, but as a tool it's impressive non the less

    The only solution that I came up with is to get all three. part of my one day plan. One day, I'll win lotto and get all these things... :smile:
