Should I wear a watch in the water? People ask me this all of the time and my answer is “no!” With that said, I wear my Panerai PAM00112, Rolex Submariner 114060, Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver, Omega SeaMaster 300M and Breitling SuperOcean Heritage II in the water all of the time. Always expect a watch to leak, become damaged or lost. If you’re willing to accept a total loss, wear your watch in the water. As a rule of thumb, I never wear anything with chronograph pushes in the water and only wear timepieces with a significant depth rating and screw-down crown.
