Although I do water resistance tests of watches after repairs, because of the difficulties associated with preserving water resistance of a watch, I do not give warranty of any sort. On demand I will do the test in front of my customer, thus proving the water tightness of their watch, however I refuse any responsibility for the water entering the watch, after the watch leaves the premises. 

 
  

The means of testing water resistance, which I provide, is achieved with the use of a standard water tester supplied by Bergeon & Cie. type 5555/98, which will perform 3 ATM water resistance test as described by ISO 2281 standard. After the water resistance test I also do the water condensation test.
