Update on New Omega Moonwatch

Post by boscoe » September 14th 2023, 11:08am

This is getting much wrist time, slim and comfortable. Stunned by the accuracy. I hang it upside down an a bed stand lamp in various positions and never misses a beat. Very comfortable.
Only gripe: water resistance. Would prefer more since I'm wary of riding on my motorcycle since could get wet.
That aside, looks good. Excellent lume and easy to read.
Sorry I waited to so long to get it. It is as advertised.

Interesting concern - given the increased rate of velocity with which rain for example, might strike the watch when factoring in your speed of travel, WR under wet conditions appears on the face of it to be a valid concern. But I couldn't say for sure — that wasn't my major. Might be worth further investigation, 50 m ain't much indeed.

It's not. It won't make a material difference.

Agreed.

You would be lucky to achieve 5m worth of 'water pressure' on the watch and I doubt any of that could find a way to push directly on a seal. Even if it did magically push directly on a seal the watch is rated for 20x that.

In my whole career I have done a dozen dives deep enough to worry a well-engineered 100m WR watch. It's not an issue IMO.

I used to worry as one reporter on a blog argued against wearing my watch in a shower.
I wore a Deep Sea at the time rated at something no one could endure…. Over the top
Now I have a Breitling 500 rated and don’t worry a bit. It’s not a diver but a Headwind.
Just a thought
We tend to worry a bit, but once I had a Tag, and saw my stem was extended while in a hot tub. Immediately ran to a watch repair to drain.. but it still showed rust. This is more likely than rain….
Damage can happen so be careful of the stem and service the watch at intervals
