Other: Fortunately our friends over at Worn & Wound already put together a great guide for these patented "compressor" cases, so we will leave the finer details up to them. The basic idea is that the watch case becomes more water tight as the watch goes deeper. This is by far our favorite execution from Bulova with only two simple lines of text on the dial.
