Hello I don't know that there is any best "waterproof" watch, as most manufacturers state that they are water resistant. As @Phly pointed out, it also really depends on intended use, and of course a budget. Heres a couple that have a depth rating (DR) of 1000m at least, and cover all price points. Squale 101 Atmos Ref. 2002A, around $1000usd https://www.squalewatches.com/Squale_2002_Professional_Dive_Watch_p/2002bk-r.htm

As an aside, if your are really thinking about scuba diving, most people now use dive computers instead of analog timepieces. Also, none of these timepieces are necessarily “The best”, but are rather tremendously well though and executed in their respective price points. Hope this answers some questions, and cheers

The one that doesn't leak? :P It depends on what you're looking for and how much you're willing to spend, just like any other type of watch. At the lower end, Seiko and Orient (Ray and Mako) make really nice dive watches. I don't have any upper end divers, so I cannot recommend any at that end, but plenty of people here can (@StainlessOnly are you available? :-) )
