The Stowa doesn't have a screw-down crown and I wouldn't swim with mine. I would look for a watch with at least 10 atm or 100 meter depth rating.

I wouldn't risk it unless the watch is cheap. The ratings system doesn't make sense to me as 5 atm is about 50 meters. In scuba diving with air your not supposed to exceed even 4 atm.

Take this as a simplified guideline:

Water-resistant to 30 meters (100 feet). Will withstand splashes of water or rain but should not be worn while swimming or diving.

Water-tested to 50 meters (165 feet). Suitable for showering or swimming in shallow water.

Water-tested to 100 meters (330 feet). Suitable for swimming and snorkeling.

Water-tested to 150 meters (500 feet). Suitable for snorkeling.

Water-tested to 200 meters (660 feet). Suitable for skin diving.

Diver's 150 meters (500 feet). Meets ISO standards and is suitable for scuba diving.

Diver's 200 meters (660 feet). Meets ISO standards and is suitable for scuba diving.
