    Steel Bracelet on Aquis Titan Titanium

    I am considering the Aquis Titan Titanium but on rubber. I have an Aquis Date with bracelet which would be interchangeable. Wondering if anyone does this and if the tone of steel vs titanium is too obvious or off-putting.

    The price difference of the Titan on rubber vs bracelet is substantial. So alternative question is what is the price of a titanium bracelet ordered separately?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a brand new never worn aquis bracelet that goes with the titanium version. If you want to buy it I'll work something out with you. PM me. Thanks

    If you don't manage to strike a deal with Jjvd21 drop Topper a line as they seem to be very competitive. I've seen pic of a steel bracelet on a titanium watch and although the colour difference was evident it wasn't bad. You could see it if you knew about it but I'm guessing that it would pass completely undetected by most people.

    Thanks folks. JJ, I have tried PM'ing you but the forum isn't letting me - something stupid going on where it won't submit despite trying on both Chrome and Safari.

    Hi jjvd21,

    If you don't work something out with Mitchjrj on the Oris Aquis Titan bracelet I'm interested.

    Thanks

    Re: Steel Bracelet on Aquis Titan Titanium

    Answered my own question... Titan arrived today. Unbelievable watch, although I do wish it was a good 3-4mm thinner. Wears very well head-on with my 7" wrist but it is thick. That aside, beautiful case work and dial, mechanically solid in every respect. A truly professional instrument.

    To the topic at hand, I installed the steel bracelet from my Aquis Date and it appears to work very well. The tops of the Titan's lugs are similarly polished so the finishes align. On the side of the bracelet is where you notice the difference in tone as compared to the side of the Titan.

    So this is a variation if you're looking for it. How egregious is a matter of tolerance and perspective. While there is a tonal variance against the case the steel bracelet actually complements the helium valve, bezel, crown and pushers. At this point I'm contemplating the value of acquiring the titanium bracelet. It would certainly offer a better tonal match overall, and would provide a bit of a weight savings (no idea how much.) Regardless, what I do find is that the bracelet takes away some visual weight from the case so it doesn't appear as tall compared to with the rubber strap. It's actually quite a dramatic difference in perception.

    You've got the best of all worlds there, the Titan head on a steel bracelet.
