If you are looking for a reliable and stylish watch that can measure depth and time while diving, you might want to consider the Chris Benz 300M Depthmeter Chronograph watch. This watch is designed for divers who want to keep track of their dive time, depth, and decompression limits. It also has a chronograph function that can measure elapsed time up to 12 hours. In this article, we will show you how to use the different features and modes of this watch, as well as some tips on how to maintain it.
Features and Parts of the Watch
The Chris Benz 300M Depthmeter Chronograph watch has a stainless steel case and a sapphire crystal that can withstand water pressure up to 300 meters. It has a screw-down crown and two buttons that control the various functions of the watch. It also has a unidirectional rotating bezel that can be used to mark the start of a dive or any other event. The watch has three hands that indicate the hours, minutes, and seconds, and a fourth hand that shows the depth in meters. The watch also has three subdials that display the date, the chronograph minutes, and the chronograph hours. The watch has a mode indicator that shows which mode the watch is in: time mode, diving mode, or chronograph mode.
How to Set the Time and Date
To set the time and date of the watch, you need to unscrew the crown by turning it counterclockwise until it pops out. Then, you can pull out the crown to two different positions: position 1 for setting the date, and position 2 for setting the time. To set the date, pull out the crown to position 1 and turn it clockwise until the desired date appears on the subdial at 3 o'clock. To set the time, pull out the crown to position 2 and turn it clockwise or counterclockwise until the desired time appears on the main dial. Make sure to synchronize the second hand with a time signal by pushing in the crown when the second hand reaches 12 o'clock. After setting the time and date, push in the crown and screw it back by turning it clockwise until it is secure.
How to Use the Bezel
The bezel of the watch can be used to mark the start of a dive or any other event. To use it, simply turn it counterclockwise until the triangular marker aligns with the minute hand. This way, you can easily read how much time has elapsed by looking at how far the minute hand has moved from the marker. The bezel can only be turned counterclockwise to prevent accidental movement that could cause errors in timing.
How to Use the Diving Mode
The diving mode of the watch can be activated by pressing and holding button B for two seconds. The mode indicator will point to DIVING and the depth hand will move to 12 o'clock position. The watch will automatically measure and display your current depth in meters on the main dial. The maximum depth reached during your dive will be stored in memory and can be recalled by pressing button B once. To clear the memory, press button B again for two seconds. The diving mode will automatically deactivate after 10 minutes of no depth change or when you return to surface level.
How to Use the Chronograph Mode
The chronograph mode of the watch can be activated by pressing button B once. The mode indicator will point to CHRONO and
the chronograph hands will move to zero position. The watch can measure elapsed time up to 12 hours with an accuracy of 1/5 second. To start, stop, or resume the chronograph, press button A. To reset
the chronograph, press button A when it is stopped. The chronograph mode will automatically deactivate after 60 minutes of no operation.
