Now, I hardly even go near a swimming pool but that's not the point. One thing that irks me to no end, however, is that there seems to be no consensus on what water resistance ratings mean.
Another reason sellers do this is to protect certain watch distributors or authorized dealers. Most watches sold online at a discount are not done so with the blessings of the brands. Many watches sold online aren't offered by a private owner, but rather a gray market dealer. These dealers mostly get their watches directly from authorized dealers or distributors. Often because they can't sell normally.

The radium would glow all night. This phenomenon would last for many years, sometimes up to 50 years, since the half life of radium is 1600 years. But eventually the base paint is broken down and destroyed by the effects of radiation from the radium, and had to be replaced by the watchmakers. This of course added another, later in history, health hazard within the repair industry. I remember, as a young boy (I’m a fourth generation watchmaker), that my dad had a tiny metal box in his watch bench that contained radium used to reapply radium to hands or dials.
