    @choombak: I can understand including the G-shock on the basis of how rugged it is. Where I have my doubts as a dive watch is how do you read it underwater? I have a variant of that same model; these digitals I didn't think have any luminescence other than pushing a button -- and that only lights up for a few seconds?

    I have to 'fess up. I have a couple of dive watches also just because I like the style; so if the need for underwater isn't really there I guess my doubt is purely academic .

    L'chaim!

    You are correct... It isn't a dive watch, and shouldn't be used as such. It happened to tag along the only group shot of all my dive watches.

    While the G Shock shown in the previous post isn't a dive watch, Casio do make the Frogman which is, so there are digital dive watches out there.

    Regarding the illumination with a digital watch you got it exactly right - you just use the backlight illumination of the watch to show the time when you need it.

    In reality, while this thread is really focussing on the traditional analog faced dive watch, to most modern divers they are something of an outdated design - replaced by modern dive computers custom made for diving - so nice large screens (after all, you won't be needing it to fit under a sleeve when you get back on dry land), and with a range of custom timing options to automate things like stops required when surfacing from depth.

    I don't think you will be the only one with the same confession here though, in fact I know for certain because I have to admit to the same thing - I have no intention of going SCUBA diving anytime soon, but I do rather enjoy wearing the couple of dive rated watches I own on dry land (and also in swimming pools, lakes, rivers, etc).
    So far I have taken my Citizen BN0000 to a whole 1% of the rated depth (a grand total of 3m), which was the bottom of the deepest swimming pool I have locally...

    I don't find the dive computer very fashionable, but most divers do wear an analog watch as the backup safety...current world record is 332 meters in the Red Sea.
