If anyone of you has had the pleasure of diving, then will you please tell me how important is it for you to look at the time?
This watch by Rolex is one big fat catch, but why market it as a ‘diver’s watch’? I don’t know the habits of watch buyers and mine don’t fit in this scheme, yet I don’t think you would be impressed by something that reassures you that you are on time. Is it that you have an appointment to keep with a very special fish or have you been informed that the sharks will appear at such and such hour and you had better get to the shallows?
300 metres under water you would be looking at the sea bed, marveling at what nature has to offer, not looking at the time. I also don’t think any sensible person would want to go for a casual few laps in the pool with a watch on. Imagine skinny dipping with a timepiece…you can at least say you had something on.
So, anyone who wants to sell me anything water-resistant, think again. I only have my sweat and tears. And all the time for them.
