Does BUSA test watches after service to their rated water resistance ? What is the common pressure "regular" jewelry shops test to ?
Most of the reading I do on sites make me think most only test to 100ft.

Randomly I thought I'd answer a 2 month old question!

As far as I know BUK do indeed test their watches to the rated water resistance after servicing, so I can only assume that BUSA do as well. In terms of "regular" jewelry shops then I'd suggest just asking them at the time. My local Rolex-approved watch repairer has the kit (a Roxer to be exact) to pressure test to 1250m.
