Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-00 Men’s Watch | Speaks less, does more
The Ratio II Free Diver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-00 Men’s Watch is vastly different from the inexpensive, multi-faceted dive computers that free divers and recreational water sports enthusiasts don’t need. At 60m at the most, you need nothing more than a timekeeping device. But with scuba diving, you need a timer to set the dive span. The unidirectional rotating bezel of the Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-00 Men’s Watch does that. If you need to go further still, it is equipped for that.
…and the price you pay
Analogue dive watches used to be essential diving equipment. This was before dive computers jumped into the scene; but well; a dive computer is mostly unnecessary for them freediving or diving just for fun. An analog dive watch tells time and measures dive-time, that’s all. The Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-00 Men’s Watch does just that and still, unlike almost all other substantial divers with the 1000m depth rating, comes surprisingly cheap! You don’t pay three thousand dollars or above to get your hands upon this one. Maybe a tenth! That too, with a Helium-release mechanism!
The reason of it all…
Why so? The Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-00 Men’s Watch has been readied for every situation, lest you want to go for deep-sea tourism some time. The Huffington Post got some catchy info about that; you can read it here. But it’s somewhat expensive, so your watch shouldn’t be. Also, it must not pop its crystal. The only answer is a proper decompression. Unless, there’s a Helium valve to assist! Decompression, however; is handled very carefully by those who drive these vehicles. Emergencies, if any, require a fast rising, you screw open the additional crown at 2 to let the raging Helium out! Then you can screw it back in.
Note: Helium is a component of the breathing gas inside the submersible vehicles. Helium atoms pass through the O-rings and gaskets and accumulate inside. The pressure inside the submersible is higher compared to normal atmospheric pressure at sea level, so as you pull up, pressure diminishes but not within the watch case so fast. The process of adjusting to the diminishing pressure is decompression; if faulty, it’s bad for the watch. With Helium replacing nitrogen, humans escaped the decompression fatalities.
That squares up to…
Alongside computer-based underwater digital devices, a sensible diver will always keep a robust analogue timepiece as backup. And robust it is. And reliable! The Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-00 Men’s Watch is all the goodness of freediving and deep-sea diving watches – some even costing more than a full set of dive-gear – put into one place. For, when under water, wealth and status merely counts.
