My knowledge, yes.  On the back of the watch should say something.

Are fossil 10 atm watches water proof?


No watch is "water proof." As a matter of fact, there's a U.S. law on the books that watches (and other equipment) can only be described as "water resistant," since nothing other than a solid object can completely shed water.

All that said, the 10 ATM designation is meant to convey that when the watch was new, it was supposed to withstand up to 10 atmospheres of external pressure--which would translate into being about 300-330 feet underwater. That's pretty water proof in my book.

HOWEVER, and this is a big caveat, a watch's water resistance rating is based on its condition at the time that it left the factory. Over time, the little gaskets that help keep water out of the watch will begin to wear and provide less water resistance. In particular, official factory servicing states that the neoprene gasket between the case and caseback of the watch should be replaced every time that you change the battery. In fact, most people, including me, re-use that gasket if it still looks pretty good when I open the watch. That definitely compromises the factory water resistance rating.

Bottom line: If you have a watch rated for 10 ATM of water resistance that's a few years old, I wouldn't be all that concerned about getting it casually wet, or even going swimming with the watch (I'm paranoid enough that I wouldn't do this, but I'm probably in the minority). However, I wouldn't go diving with a watch that's had its battery replaced unless it was re-tested for water resistance after the battery was serviced. Some but not all jewelers have special machines that perform this test. If you're interested, you could probably pay one of them a few dollars to have your watch tested. They don't have to do anything to the watch other than place it in their machine, so it's not a big deal for someone who has the equipment to perform this test.

How water proof can you dive to with them?


Only if the water resistance is 100m or more.

If your watch has a "no water" icon, then it should not be allow to get wet.

Oil all over wrist watch - can it be cleaned?


hi, if the watch is water proof witch most watches are, if it is it should tell you something on the back like wr 30m or wr 10m if it says this on the back then this is telling you that the watch is water proof up to 10metres or what ever it says if this is the case then you can put it in the sink with only slightly warm soapy water then just rub it over gently with soft cloth whilst under water.

How ever if it says water resistent then this dont mean its water proof this just means its rain proof but not made for going under water unless it says water resistent to 30m then this can be washed in the sink also if it dont say this then you cant put it in the sink you can only wipe over it with a damp cloth to remove as much oil as possible.

But if you can get it clean and its not water proof then the watch is going to have to be taken apart to clean the outer casing that is only if the oil has not got inside the watch.
Oil wont short the watch out put it can cause problems if you have any buttons on the watch so your best bet would be taking it into a watch shop and get it cleaned that way.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Quest watch-bought refurb'd from Zales. Seems to stop once in a while or when sudden hard movements. After pressing the chronograph buttons sometimes several times it starts again. is this normal? First...


Mechanical watches are very good today - I remember when a new technology called "Shock Resistant" came into vogue many years ago. This "feature" is rarely spoken of today. Your Quest should be shock resistant - which has nothing to do with electricity - but it is not 'bullet proof'.

Please take it back to Zales for inspection.

Contratulations on your purchase of this expensive time piece.

Winder is lost


You need a replacement stem and crown. I would replace the stem just to be sure you arent putting a new crown on a damaged stem.

Sakgen is very good about repairing their watches. Unfortunately this doesnt fall under their warranty but the repair directly through them is an average price for this part.

Generic after market crowns are also available at local watch repair shops. Make sure that if you go this route that you select a shop that can reseal the watch to is water resistance rating so you do not void your lifetime limited warranty on the movement. This mean they must have a pressure testing chamber and be able to supply printed proof of resealing.

Good luck!

Guess Steel Water resistant is not water resistant!!!


Water resistant does not mean water proof. You should never wear this watch while bathing, swimming or in sauna.
Any watchmaker will be able to remove any condensation and dry out your watch - no matter you are in the U.S.A. or Romania.
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help.

Rate, please.

Tissot T-Touch : Faulty reading on Thermo, no reading on Altimeter and meteo not working either


If it's under warranty by all means pursue a fix. You might have to send it to a warranty center instead of working with your local dealer.

"Water proof" and "water resistant" are very different. About 20 years ago all watch companies stopped promising waterproof and started using the term water resistant. It gives them wiggle room in the guarantee, unfortunately. I believe T-Touch is supposed to be water resistant to only a few meters.

How deep can I dive with this watch


Per "Sector" all of their watches are "water resistant to a minimum of 300 feet". Note that they do not say "water proof".
