What does 5 ATM mean on a wrist watch?
"ATM" stands for ATMospheres and the number before it, refers to the number of atmospheres of pressure the watch will withstand before leaking. At sea level we are all subjected to one atmosphere of pressure, because we have one atmosphere of air above us pressing down. For every 33 feet (10 metres) underwater you go, the pressure increases by 1 atmosphere. Therefore, at 33 feet underwater the pressure is 2 atmospheres (2 ATM), at 66 feet underwater the pressure is 3 atmospheres (3 ATM), etc. So 5 ATM is equivalent to 132 feet (40 metres) underwater. In conclusion, the ATM rating of a watch is the number of atmospheres of pressure the watch will withstand before breaking/leaking. To convert ATM 's into the depth rating in metres just subtract 1 and multiply by 10. eg: 5 ATM = (5 - 1)*10 = 40 metres.

Answer \n. My guess is the Patek Philippe Calibre 89, it is often described as the most complicated watch ever created. There is only 1 copy in existence. . That is a pocket watch. The OP asked about wrist watches. . BTW there are 4 copies in existence. One each in yellow, white rose gold, and… one in platinum. . (Another example are the many pocket watches Abraham Louis Breguet made on special order for royalty, high ranking army officers, and the upper class. . I'm sorry, but there are literally hundreds of one-of-a-kind wrist watches out there. . Some just have more famous brand names than others. At one time Hamilton Watch Company would make a watch and substitute the letters of your name for the regular numerals or hour markers. And a well-known watch company (in business right now) on Main Street in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania offers a completely custom-made wrist watch for anyone with a few spare thousands of dollars on hand.

It means the part of the watch that moves the hands are from Japan. Absolutely true. Japanese watch companies are using lots of plastic in their watches. It makes them very cheap, but they don't live for too long. They are definitely better then Chinese ones, but not even comparable to Swiss-made …or even Russian. (MORE)
It is 10.12 37sec not 10.10 ok. Because astrologers told that American President Mr. Abraham Lincon would die at the time of 10.15AM. So, entire Americans stopped their watches at 10.12AM 37sec in American clock tower. But none can escape from death. He died exactly at 10.14AM by Gun-shot and … Yes there is a other reason. In second world war American dropped their atom bomb on Hiroshima & Nagasaki. The first bomb was dropped at 10:10 AM. In remembrance of all the victimes, all unused clocks or the clocks which are presented in show-cases have the same time of 10:10... Mukesh Khanna (MORE)
When someone says that they have a wrist watch that is signed itmeans that the face of the watch has a signature on it. Many famousartists will sign watch faces.
depends on the year and model of the watch. the khaki quartz model (new) can be purchased for around $150, prices go up based on the year and model. excellent watches. now owned by swatch group.
There are a lot of large wrist watches to choose from. Often times, the really big ones will be the ones that are waterproof to large depths, shock proof, and will have a lot of features. As far as concrete brands, Casio, especially their G-shock line, will have a lot of large watches.

Point the hour hand at the sun (only works in daytime and north of equator). South will be halfway between the hour hand and noon (12 o'clock). Note that daylight savings and local variation all introduce error, but it's close enough if you're desperate.
the wrist watch is used to keep time in a more convenient way than having to pull out a pocket watch and look at it.
The term "atm" means "atmosphere" It's a term used to measure pressure. One atmosphere is the atmospheric air pressure at sea level. On a watch it is a measure of water resistance. Under water the pressure increases by one atmosphere for every 10 metres of depth. So "10 atm" on a watch means it is… water resistant to 100 metres. "30 atm" is water resistant to 300 metres. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_pressure (MORE)

It means that it most likely needs a new battery which can range in price dependent on the manufacturer of the watch.
Well it depends on what type of wrist watch it is ... if your has a few metallic buttons on the side maybe try to turn them different ways... :D
I think that movement means to them, but I do not know what i treally means but I can look it up
It's a watch for underwater use, it will stand pressure up to 10 Atmospheres or 100m
ATM stands for Automatic Teller Machine. If you insert your magnetic card and enter your secret pin, the ATM can dispense cash (Upto the limit of either your bank balance or a max amount per day) automatically Some people even call it Any Time Money because the ATM's are open 24 hrs a day.

No, at least they should be 10atm or 100m/33ft 5 ATM you can use it in the shower

if you are wearing yours, then you determine your time. If you have someone elses watch, means your wearing their time... You know why? Cause it's the 2nd time somones left their watch at my place, and they come to me. POwer it is. Weird but true.
It means 10 atmospheres. This usually indicates a watch will remain waterproof to a depth of 10 atmospheres or about 340 feet of water.
yes you can swim down to 5m depth which is the limit for your watch
Keys are normally not used with wrist watches. a number of pocket watches made in the mid to late nineteenth century did use them the same key was used to first wind and then set the movement. there was no winding stem or crown. The inventon of the4 Stem winder as early as about l877 by Henry Abbot…t and the practical nature of this improvement relegated the key-winders to an antique or obsolete status- but that too, has virtue! One man"s trash is another"s Pay Dirt. During World war II the Hamilton Marine chronometers, essentially oversized watches- were all key-wind and were wound from the back- as were the majority of key-wind watches the famous Model 2l or ( M-42 from year of introduction) was of this type, the Model 22, however was a stem winder with a special setting gear. Hamilton had a variety of military and Naval contracts, and are still valuable for high-accuracy duty. the back-winding knob ( permanently attached) on most alarm clocks is a residual survival of the key-winding idea, but the key wind watches had a detachable key- and normally two arbors- one for winding the movement, the other for setting the time. I have no idea when they were finally phased out, even circa well, l909 there were revivals of horological fashions. (MORE)
Quartz clocks and watches use the piezo electric effect of a silicon dioxide crystal that generates a tiny voltage across it when deformed. Two wires from gold plated patches are taken from either side of the crystal and the unit is encapsulated in a tiny cylinder. The watch crystal is laser trimmed… to oscillate at a chosen frequency. In most watches this is 32,768Hz because it is a multiple of 2 raised to the power of 14. The tuned crystal is wired in an electronic oscillator using a tiny integrated circuit containing a cascade of binary flip flops. These devices divide an incoming frequency in half like going down the octaves on a piano. After 14 iterations through these devices a signal of exactly 1Hz is available to drive a tiny stepping motor. This drives the second hand and the hour and minute hands are driven in the normal way via gears. (MORE)

No. A wristwatch is a device used to monitor the passage of time, popularly referred to as a "clock" or "timepiece". It has no kinetic energy while it's lying on the dresser. It acquires a small amount of kinetic energy when you put it on your wrist and walk around. It acquires a greater am…ount of kinetic energy if you take it off and throw it at somebody. (MORE)

In a watch, the jewels refer to bearings for the shafts of the various moving parts as well as the escapement. Jewels, as opposed to plain bushings, tend to be harder and lower friction and thus wear far less and also tend to make the watch run better.

There is no right or wrong wrist to wear a watch on. If you're right-handed, it's best to wear a watch on your left wrist and vice versa, but it's entirely your preference.
I would guess that they want to know if you saw their watch, somewhere; or they may be implying that they think you stole their watch.
most women wear a watch on the right side if they are LEFT HANDED a woman wears a watch on the left SIDE IF SHE IS RIGHT HANDED
It means you can't shower dive and swim with it but it can be wet as in wet from the rain or washing your hands
ATM = Atmospheres. It means the amount of pressure the watch can take in atmospheres before failure is assumed. 2 ATM is about 1/2 a meter under water. so drop it in the sink and you're ok,,, drop it in the Mariana trench and kiss it goodbye ;)
The first wrist watch (then called a wristlet) was made for women by Patek Philippe. It contained a small pocket watch movement and the case was attached to the wrist by a ribbon or cord. The first mens wrist watch is generally accepted to have been made on commission to the German Army by Girard-Pe…rregaux shortly before the end of the 19th century. The first wrist watch to go on general sale to the public was the Cartier Santos (although not called that at the time) in 1906 a year after the one Louis Cartier made for an aviator friend of his, Alberto Santos-Dumont.

If you want to. I find it annoying, but many people do. There is a danger of smacking it against the headboard or wall, but there is noting really wrong with doing it.
A wrist watch is non-perishable. Any deterioration or accident to the watch can be repaired.
Only suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. NOT suitable for showering, bathing, swimming, snorkeling, water related work and fishing.
Hamilton wrist watches can be bought in a wide variety of locations. They can simply be bought at a local Hamilton store, or a local wrist watch store. They can also be bought at the official Hamilton website.
"3 ATM" on a watch is a pressure rating for 3 atmospheres (a unitof pressure equivalent to three times Earth's atmosphere) which isroughly equivalent to 30 meters (~100 feet) of water resistance(though most manufacturers will not recommend you swim or dive withit at all)
It means that she admires the boy and looks forward to have more intimate friendship and relationship with him.
Most quartz watches will tick 1 time a second (for practicalreasons as if it goes any faster it will drain the battery). As formechanical watches, it depends on the movement - it could roughlygo from anywhere to 4 to 8 ticks a second.
This may be either easy or hard . Some watch backs can easily be popped off or removed by taking outsome screws, after doing that replacing the battery is fairlyobvious. Some watch backs however need specialized tools that only a jewelerwill have. Leave these to the jeweler.
