Re: Titanium vs steel
In Response To: Titanium vs steel ()

: My wife has given me permission to pull the trigger on a
: purchase. For months now, I was certain that I wanted the
: steel Bond model Seamaster... and then I saw the titanium
: Seamaster with the new dial and hands as well as a lighter
: face. I fell in love. So, my question to all before I plunk
: down my hard earned cash... Any downside to titanium vs
: steel?


: Adam Rodman

The Ti has a duller gray finish and scratches more easily. On the plus side it is quite a bit lighter than the steel counterpart. Tough decision...get both!!!!:)
