Andre Fleury Swiss Watch Company LLC.
Quality and Service Since 1964
Your watch stopped because the mainspring did not unwind for mechanical reasons.
Mechanical watches need regular servicing, there is a lot of friction, oil and grease has to be fresh. Mechanical watches needs servicing between three to five years. You can't overwind your watch.
Your watch may just need a fresh cell. Quartz watches have a floating gear system, therefore no friction. If after replacing the cell your quartz watch does not keep proper time then it is time for servicing. Servicing is not necessary each time your cell is replaced.
The Scuba diving world record is approximately 300 meter. The various classes of divers have already reached their physical and physiological safe diving limits. For the recreational diver on air, that limit is 130 feet 40 meters. For the helmet air supplied commercial diver, it is probably 200 feet 70 meters. For the mixed gas helmet diver, it is probably 300 feet 100 meters. Therefore if your watch is tested for 100 meters 330 ft you are perfectly safe even for open see commercial diving.
For a Swiss chronometer certificate, tolerances in time keeping for a mechanical watch is an average daily rate: -4/+6  seconds.
Quartz watches Average daily rate at 23 °C: ± 0.07 second.
Mechanical watches: "I over-wound my watch"
Quartz watches: "My watch stopped it probably needs to be serviced"
Water resistant watches testing: "How deep can my watch go?"
