The water tightness is indicated to a theoretical depth, according to laboratory tests. In real life conditions (swimming, diving, shocks,…) a watch can be subject to sudden movements and changes in temperature which can be sufficient to vary its internal pressure, the principal cause of water infiltration.
Reminder on the waterproof of a watch: a watch is only waterproof from 10 atm / 10bar / 100m. This means you can dive with your watch.
