Is this watch certified for 20 dives? It is a gift and I know nothing about scuba equipment.

This watch is designed for scuba diving and is depth rated well beyond the depth recreational divers go to.

Most of our watches are fitted with a heat-tempered mineral crystal. Please note that while this glass is heat-hardened, an impact with a hard or sharp object can scratch the crystal, or crack or shatter it. If this happens, retun the watch to one of our Service Centers where the crystal can be replaced for a moderate charge. Scratches and impact damage are not covered under warranty. A virtually scratchproof sapphire crystal is standard on all S-Series models and is availabe at extr acost for many other models.
