Diving with your Aston Martin DB5 watch: everything you need to know

Do you own a watch made from an authentic Aston Martin DB5 and wonder if it's suitable for diving? In this article, we'll take a closer look at the water resistance of your watch from the DB5 collection and give you some advice on diving with this exceptional timepiece.

How water-resistant is our Atelier Jalaper DB5 collection watch?

Before diving in with your watch made from a DB5 cap, it's crucial to understand its water resistance rating. The watches in the DB5 collection are designed with a water resistance rating of up to 30 metres (3 ATM), which means they are water resistant to a pressure equivalent to immersion at a depth of 30 metres. 

Can I dive with my Aston Martin DB5 Collection watch?

The DB5 collection may be water resistant to 30 metres, but that doesn't mean it's suitable for all diving activities. Your Aston Martin inspired watch is not suitable for freediving, snorkelling or surface activities such as swimming or even deep diving. A professional diving watch designed specifically for these extreme conditions is recommended.

Tips for diving with your watches :

If you decide to dive with your watch, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure that the crown of your watch is properly screwed down to maintain its water-resistance.
  • Avoid handling the adjustment knobs underwater to prevent water from seeping into the casing.
  • After each immersion, rinse your watch thoroughly in fresh water to remove salt and residue.
  • Have your watch serviced regularly by a qualified watchmaker to ensure that it works properly and is water-resistant.


In conclusion, although your Aston Martin DB5-inspired watch is water-resistant to 30 metres, it's important to take precautions when it comes into contact with water for its durability and smooth operation.
