There is a great diagram giving explanations on when can a watch be used also for swimming, snorkelling and surfing as well. These are the watches staring the sign: “water resistant 100m”. The water resistant watches are not good for diving though. However, most importantly the need of making water resistant watches can be connected with the first usage of titanium watches. Before finding out about the usefulness of titanium, the watchmakers were looking for special metals with the qualities of being able to resist corrosion and other damages mainly caused by seawater. Seawater is much harder than normal water. The salty water is famous for making electronics absolutely, irreparably useless, if they are without accurate protection. It was the Rolex brand, which first started to produce its special water resistant and the first diving watches. For these watches, titanium is more than necessary, although thanks to the high costs of producing titanium watches, nowadays scientists are experimenting with other anti corrosive materials as well.

Other big and unique features and advantages of titanium is that it is non-magnetic and stainless. It is up to the treatment of titanium but it can also be the hardest of steels with great resistance for any physical damages.
