The Swatch x OMEGA collection is breaking the internet not only for its entry price ($380 AUD) but its assortment of special coloured dials, contrasting straps, and intricate detailing. Each watch includes a genuine VELCRO strap, with details found on the subdials such as ‘diamonds’ (Venus) and even a full illustration of Saturn found on the ‘Mission to Saturn’ variation (our personal favourite).

Just a thought
Why only: Water-resistant: 3 Bar

I know its not a dive watch but..............no screw down crown and pushers part of that? Too expensive to make them more secure? I know it can be done.

Guess its not necessary because there is little water on those planets or the Moon.

No watch can be completely waterproof; there is only varying degrees of water resistance. IIRC, the FTC banned the marking of watches as waterproof around 1960. The ISO banned the label in the early 90's.

A watches WR rating indicates a watches ability to withstand water pressure at the rated depth. Watches are tested in static conditions and WR / pressure may be affected by movement, the movement of the arms while swimming, or from impacts like diving into a pool, for example. Therefore, it is prudent never to take any watch to a depth of its maximum WR rating.

There are two main standards-

-Watches marked water resistant are governed by ISO 22810:2010. These watches must be tested to 100% of their rating.

- The ratings for dive watches are governed by ISO 6425:2018. Dive watches must be tested to 125% of their rating. Additionally, watches sold as dive watches must carry a rating of at least 100m, and are required to have a system to indicate the dive time that is visible in the dark.

ATM / BAR = 10m

A collector proved years ago that any difference between static and dynamic pressure which could realistically be caused by human movement was negligible.

Interesting - I guess when I think about it the entire notion flies in the face of common sense, particularly given most dives don't reach depths beyond 30 meters or so.

OK- so how about this? You're driving at the speed of light and you turn on your headlights, would they do anything?

Well, it's impossible to travel at the speed of light. The speed of light is the speed that something without mass travels. It's absolute, and cannot be exceeded (i.e. a photon emitted from something travelling at x km/h doesn't travel at speed of light + x km/h).

Unless tachyons do in fact exist.
