I think cold water is an important factor; if you use warm or hot water, the rubber will expand and compromise the integrity of the seal. Most watchmakers will tell you that hot showers are the undoing of many "waterproof" watches.


Maybe watches are different but...

I believe it is just the opposite.

cold shrinks the seal and leaves room for it to develop a leak .

The Challenger disaster in 1986 unfortunately proved that!
