"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.

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


yes you can swim down to 5m depth which is the limit for your watch

CHOPARD 201-CARAT WATCH ~ Priced at $25.000.000followed by the $5 Million Hublot.

Actually, 5 ATM can either be 132 feet or 165 feet. We all have 1 ATM above us (the air/sky/atmosphere) that creates a constant pressure. Sooo.. 1 ATM + 4 ATM (33ft per ATM) = 132 feet underwater. However, if you actually mean 5 ATM UNDERWATER, then it would be 6 ATM (1 ATM + 5 ATM underwater) for the equation which would equal 165 feet. Hope this helps!

If it doesn't, inform the Security who would be waiting outside the ATM and ask him not to allow anyone inside for atleast the next 5 minutes and d. Call up customer care and inform them of the situation. They will block your ATM Card Usually cards that get stuck inside an ATM are stored inside specially designed vaults that are supposed to hold stuck or confiscated ATM Cards. The bank authorities will be able to get their hands on them and take appropriate action.
