In the 1920s and 1930s, watch manufacturers began to study ways to combat these external forces to increase the durability and durability of their watches. Although before the 1920s, a few watchmakers, such as Francis Baumgartner, Paul Perregaux, and Georges Peret, were able to produce high-quality cases, provide better sealing, and thus have good water resistance. Omega Both Longines and Longines used this case. However, the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, was the first person who really saw the potential of waterproof watches and further devoted himself to bringing the waterproof watches to the market and winning public applause.
