The use of titanium in wristwatches began in 1970 by Citizen in their X8 model. It seems that over all these decades, titanium has not achieved great success and popularity in the watch industry, since watches in a titanium case are quite a rare phenomenon. It should be said, though, that this material outperforms stainless steel in many ways, which is the industry standard in the watchmaking industry.
Titanium has been a leader in aerospace engineering for decades, being lighter and stronger than conventional metal. Titanium is also quite heat-resistant, and also practically does not corrode, therefore it is durable. But of course, it is not without its drawbacks, titanium is very prone to scratches, although today most watch companies use methods of surface hardening and metal coating to protect the watch case from any damage, plus no one bothers you to take the watch to a professional watchmaker to save you them from possible scuffs or scratches.
After all, the enormous advantages of this material are worth owning a watch made of such a noble material. Today let’s talk about 5 stylish men’s wristwatches in a titanium case:
The classic Casio LCW-M170TD-7A quartz watch from the Lineage collection is ideal for men who prefer a beautiful aesthetic balance between sophistication, classic, novelty, simple and versatility in a wristwatch.
Casio Lineage LCW-M170TD-7A has the most durable 39.5 mm case and bracelet made of real titanium, as well as a huge number of useful functions, such as: world time, 5 alarms, timer, additional multilingual display, Multi Band 6 technology (allowing to receive radio signals from towers at some points around the globe), power saving functions and battery indicator. The watch dial itself looks very solid, hour markers with pointed hands emphasize the elegance of the watch, and all this beauty is carefully protected by durable sapphire crystal.
Hidden inside the Casio LCW-M170TD-7A is the Casio 5161 quartz movement, which is also powered by Tough Solar.
Also, the Casio LCW-M170TD-7A watch is a JDM watch model (for the domestic market of Japan), which immediately speaks of their high quality finish and filling, so it’s great that they can be found on our market for a quite adequate price tag.
If you are a fan of watches in titanium cases and would like something not too expensive, classic, mixed with functionality and made for centuries, then choosing Casio seems like an obvious step.
Yes, we’re not done with the Japanese models yet. The Seiko SSB389P1 has a beautiful analogue black dial in a titanium case with a diameter of 41 mm. Seiko’s innovative technologies and striking sporty design elements with all their inherent rigor make this men’s chronograph an attractive and stylish option for everyday wear, for example, in the office with business attire.
The Seiko SSB389P1 watch is equipped with an 8T67 quartz movement and has a large number of basic functions familiar to any chronograph. With a titanium case and a screw-down case back, this watch is water-resistant to 100 meters, so you don’t even have to be afraid to swim in it, but don’t dive or dive as this is not a diver’s model.
The dial is protected from external influences by Hardlex glass (tempered mineral glass), of course, I immediately put a minus for this, since only sapphire crystal is acceptable for such a price in a watch. Luminous hands and indexes ensure excellent readability at any time of the day.
One way or another, but the Seiko SSB389P1 watch is a great combination of sporty design, the best finishing materials (except glass) and high-quality internal technologies that will serve you faithfully for many years.
The Tissot T101.410.44.041.00 from the PR100 range is a classic Swiss watch that can be worn for any occasion. This watch collection is renowned for its understated aesthetics, symbolizing luxury, quality and classic style, which is why it is so adored by a huge number of fans of Swiss watchmaking.
Tissot itself is rightfully considered one of the best and most popular Swiss mid-market watchmakers in the world, thanks to its many years of tradition, experience and craftsmanship.
The 39 mm case of the Tissot T101.410.44.041.00 is entirely crafted from gray titanium with a gray titanium strap. The dial has a simple and elegant design. The dial has nothing superfluous, except for the date function located at the 6 o’clock position, hour markers and rounded hands, and a durable sapphire crystal.
The watch is set in motion by the time-tested Swiss quartz movement ETA 955.112 of high precision. The watch is water resistant up to 100 m, but these are not divers and it is better not to dive in them.
If you are a fan of minimalism and Swiss quality of finish and movement, then the Tissot T101.410.44.041.00 watch with a durable titanium case is an excellent purchase.
Swiss Military Hanowa 05-4284.15.007
The Swiss Military Hanowa 05-4284.15.007 Triton Automatic is another Swiss-made watch on our list. Despite its impressive size (the diameter of their cases is 47 mm and the distance between the lugs is 54 mm), this is a very comfortable watch, which is pleasant to wear on the wrist and also to hold in the hands.
