    Doxa heat treats its titanium cases to a greater hardness than typical Stainless 316L.

    The advantage to Ti is about weight and superior salt water resistance. Sinn watches are no lighter than any other steel watch case.

    That's it for me, the corrosion factor. Once a watch is on my wrist, whether a 1200T, 750T, or my M31 I forget it's there, however I want my watch still able to maintain WR in 20 yrs time and not have corrosion that might negate that. Ti is the best metal used in dive watches.

    Weight isn't an issue; scratches are. Doxa Ti watches are less prone to scratch than stainless? If so, then count me in!

    Doxa's ad copy says that is the case, but I've not tested them myself to know either way.

    My M31 seems to withstand scratches better than other Ti watches from other companies I've had. Comparing to untreated Ti. So far I'd say some of Citizen's older Duratect models were a touch above, but they were also just simple, low-profile field watches too.

    Another idea along the same line as the 300T historical model... How about a Cousteau Society/Aqualung commemorative edition, in various colors. As a way in incorporating the vintage US Divers logo on the dial. :)

    Inspiration for the CS edition found here...

    A Searambler 600T. The Searambler has the most interesting dial/hands combo while the 600T's case is the most practical size & most comfortable design (not nearly as top-heavy as the 1200T). "Beads of rice" bracelet...maybe I lean towards brushed center links.

    Seiko Spring Drive was my 2010 wedding watch, Rolex Datejust was my anniversary watch, but I call Oris home.
