After BMW had come out class winner with the Type 328 at the Mille Miglia in 1938 and overall winner with Fritz Huschke von Hanestein and Walter Baumer in 1940, seven years were to pass before racing drivers were once again able to line up for this race. Ten years later, a tragic accident on 12 May 1957 spelled the end of the Mille Miglia. It was not until 1977 - 50 years after the first race - that new life was breathed into the Mille Miglia with the suffix <<storica>>. This also heralded the start of the success story for the BMW 328. In the year 2002, Giuliano Cane celebrated his seventh overall win, driving a BMW 328 MM Touring Roadster ,,in the greatest race in Italy" - more wins then any other driver before. In 2004, his role as a favorite was again confirmed in an overall win together with his wife.

....a never-ending source of misunderstandings often caused by the irresponsible advertising of certain competitors, who are usually the ones to refuse any responsibility when damage by water occurs.
Here are the facts in plain English:
1. Every known brand submits the watch to a 2-phase test in a chamber, where it has to withstand to pressure for the minimum length of time required by industrial standards. It may seem a paradox, but low pressure-resistance, say at 0.5 bar equivalent to 50 cm depth is more critical to achieve, because increasing pressure tends to compress the seals, thereby increasing the resistance; the second phase test conducted at 3 bar (30 m.) is confirmatory.
Because of a solid case-construction, the known brands watches will resist to 10 bar (100 m. or 300 ft) and we could confidently call it a «divers watch»
The water resistance of a wristwatch is constantly challenged by mechanical wear caused by bumps, shocks etc., rapid changes in temperature, caustic acids, chemicals, etc. and can therefore not be guaranteed as a permanent condition.
I renounces to using inflationary «theoretical» claims; the decision to wear your valuable timepiece for swimming, diving or in the Sauna is yours.
On a side-note: Only very few specially trained and equipped divers reach depths of 100 m and wear professional computers to indicate the life-saving compression- and decompression data; at such depths, normal watches will just not do.
