Bar is an atomspheric pressure rating and ten bar is equivelent to ten times the pressure of the atomsphere at sea level.

I'll see if I can find a equation to change this to pressure depth.

you can go to 10 local bars, and drink as many beer as you can , if it still works, you go to the next 10 bars , and try again ! :-)

10 bar is about 99m I believe, so round it up to 100m and thats about 330ft

nope , just anywhere where they serve you liquid stuff , so it could be a macdonalds, but the downside is that you don't feel funny afterwards ( just like a blimp )

let's take it a step further, Oakley makes polarized sunglasses, polarized costs a lot more than regular lenses, polarized lenses are great for use on the water, Oakley's don't float, More money for Oakley!

10 bar is equivalent in fresh water to 328 feet, or 100 metres- so pretty much what Adam said.

Note that saltwater is less dense than freshwater, so pressure is lower.

Of course, none of this means you should take an O watch 99 metres down. They're fine for swimming or snorkeling but for anything involving scuba gear you really don't want to be wearing a watch that doesn't have a screw-down crown.
