All About The Titanium Watches

Watches are not only a fashionable accessory, they are a practical one as well. There are many factors to consider when it comes to purchasing a watch. The first consideration for most people is that it must fit comfortably. Titanium makes a great material for a watch due to its high strength-to-weight ratio. You’ll have a hard time finding a lighter or stronger material than titanium, sometimes called “space-age material” due to its low density.  For me, titanium is the best overall engineering metal ever!

Titanium watches are roughly 30 percent stronger than stainless steel, yet weigh less. Titanium is a dark gray material that is found in sand deposits and rocks. Its original purpose was to be used in NASA space and aircraft construction, though it has certainly branched out since then. One of the primary benefits of titanium, aside from its lighter weight, is that it contains an oxide film that does not corrode or rust. In terms of watch wear, this is useful for watches for underwater use, or for best replica watches that are worn daily in harsh environments.

Titanium has recently become very popular in high-end watches, and it is not without reason. This is because they have proven to be a cheaper option than traditionally used higher end materials such as gold or platinum. A titanium watch case can be abused, but it won’t crack. It can be exposed to salt water and salt air without corroding. A titanium watch is comfortable to wear because it’s light on the wrist. It’s not affected by extreme temperatures and remains comfortable even when the skin perspires under the case.

Titanium is preferred for the strength it offers as well as the weight savings over steel – it is a less dense metal – but wearers must be keen to be careful with a titanium if they are looking to maintain that new watch look. Often bringing with it connotations of high-tech endeavors like Formula 1 and aerospace engineering where titanium is commonly used, the metal is frequently found in sporty, technical watches, combined with other high tech materials like ceramic and carbon fiber.

All in all, a titanium watch is a strong and durable type of watch to own. It is offered with a wide variety of functions, styles and options. Titanium is even hypoallergenic, which means it is appropriate for people with any skin type, even sensitive skin.
