In Response To: Re: Titanium vs steel ()

So, if you had it to do again, would you go with the titanium or would you opt for steel instead?

: I have the ti Seamaster Chrono. I love the lighter weight, but
: man, does it scratch! Since this is supposed to be one of
: the toughest watches in the world, I won't baby it.
: Nonetheless, I have to live with the fact that it's going
: to need professional refurbishing every couple of years.

: The only downside to steel is the weight, which is
: considerable for a watch this big. On the other hand, why
: buy a big watch if you don't want to feel the weight of it?
