I have PM'd a few of the watch sponsors and people who might know. I'm looking for recommendations on a testing lab that can test a watch up to and possibly over 100 bar.

If you wish to PM me them instead of posting in public feel free :)

I'm wanting to test the equivalent of 10,000+ft in depth.

Might need a little more string ;)

10,000 ft is = 298.9066900004261 Bar. gonna need lot more fishing line for that.


And the link to the lab I provided?

"Level 2 Pressure Test Service will both dry and wet test a watch rated over 100m/10bar and up to 1000m/100bar"

100 bar was the original amount you requested, your welcome!

Just curious but why?
There is a modification in the gshock world, that entails removing the air in the case and replacing with a silicone based oil. It's commonly referred to as "hydro oil conversion". Forums and blogs all speculate the total pressure the watch can take but no one has tested it (or so I'm led to believe). My current MudMan is rated for 20 bar, if I can get 100+ (5+ times the depth rating) the mod was a success. As is the oil widens the temperature threshold to well below 0F and up to 60+C. The oil also increases the field of view providing a cleaner, crisper display.
