The Jules Jurgensen Uncrushable 3,000-Foot Depth Watch can withstand water pressures exerted on its frame when submerged down to a depth of 3,000 feet. The Jules Jurgensen Diving Watch is able to go so deep because of a 4 mm faceplate made of the hardest mineral crystal available (570 on the Vickers scale) that's sealed and bonded to the case, washers and O-ring gaskets between the case and back that provide the tightest seal available, a case back that's twice as thick as cases found in lesser watches, and pushers made of heavy-gauge steel which are soldered to the case to provide a tight seal when in locked-down mode. This watch will make a great present for anyone that's serious about diving deep or wants to be able to say that they could if needed. Plus it's quite the sporty looking watch. You can buy this diving watch for a price of $300.
