The TESTS

The extreme conditions for which the 12000 FEET is designed meant that the standard tests for diver’s watches had to be changed completely.

In order to develop and test the case and crystal a new pressure tank capable of building up a pressure of up to 800atm had to be built – and tested - from scratch.

All individual parts of the watch underwent a multitude of tests before mass production, ensuring the quality all CX SWISS MILITARY WATCH™ timepieces are known for.

The final and successful type testing was undertaken by the renowned Oceanographic Institute of the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom (see http://www.soc.soton.ac.uk/), based on the ISO norm 6425.
