Why should I do a pressure test?
As a watch ages, the aging seals (gaskets) become less reliable. They are usually some type of rubber or plastic that becomes brittle with age. These seals are vulnerable and the watchmaker must replace them and test them in order for the watch to be protected as it was when new. When a watch leaks the damage will begin immediately and progress until the watch is dried out. Water resistance testing assures the seal is intact and water will not feasibly enter a watch. Some watches may REQUIRE a water resistant test. If would like to learn more about water damage and how to prevent it, please head here.
