    To be fair, $1500 makes sense is if it's a limited model. Not that I think it's sensible or that I'd personally want to have anything to do with it, in that case, haha. And it would quickly rise even higher than that. Anyway, seeing an actual production model square in full titanium (like, actually honestly full and not just the case or somesuch) and priced as a high-end production model square instead of limited edition price range... would be really nice.

    I really hope it isnít a LE and becomes part of the regular lineup too so that maybe I can pick one up used later without being gouged, but personally I donít think I am willing to fork out $1,500 for it. For that kind of money you are creeping into GS 9f and Citizen Chronometer territory, not to mention Oceanus has some stellar titanium offerings that are far more affordable. I know I am getting a bit apples and oranges here, but it is hard for me to justify that kind of money. Either way, I hope I at least get to try one on and look forward to the release.

    Am I correct in thinking the $1,200 Porter was DLC coated SS?

    $300 more for Ti makes sense to me.

    The more I study the photo, the more it seems that the bezel is sadly metal instead of resin. Even if it is hard plastic, it will be prone to scratches unlike a self-healing all resin bezel. The contrasting bezel is an odd design choice in the photo as well. Will have to see in person.

    Confused?! You'd rather this $1,500 square had a resin bezel?
    Have you ever experienced DLC? It's there to resist scratches and does a fine job.

    It was $1200 only because it was a limited edition, not because it was DLC coated. Scarcity is why it was expensive, not meaterials and technology.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Man, Casio sure did do a great job making that titanium band look like resin!

    The photo honestly just makes this look like a titanium case wrapped in resin with a combi bracelet, which I certainly hope is not the case for $1,500.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."
