Elementary Watson! If a watch leaks, air will certainly push its way in to equalize the pressure. Air compresses therefor, an increased volume of air is present. Once the watch becomes pressurized internally due to the leak, then when you dunk the watch under water and let off the outside pressure the reverse happens and air will push past the leak back out showing you where the leak is. Totally and simply ingenious. It's so basically simple in concept, I can believe I didn't think of it myself.

Looks and sounds amazing, like all your machinery! I just wish my poor non-technical brain understood a tenth of the science involved! :lol:
You think this is bad... wait until you fall into a discussion with Yoda on Quantum Physics! Let's see.. who brought up the question: If you were at or near the north pole, would your watch become faster or slower due to the difference in the earth's magnetic field at that extreme location?
