Base Titanium= Titanium top stainless steel inner.
Titanium Base: 100% Titanium with protective coating such as Duratect.
So perhaps it is just a matter of the order of the words. Could be a bad translation and this watch is truly 100% Ti, who knows...
EDIT: I just noticed that it is on the actual back case of the watch, then there is a high chance that it is not fully 100% Titanium.

If they were not and were just plated steel they would weigh the same as full SS watches. They do not.
Citizen watches say base titanium on the watch and band and they make some expensive watches with their Attesa brand many having the Duratect treatment and full DLC and costing about $1500 dollars new. Their JDM watches say the same.
They are also much lighter than an equivalent SS steel watch. What are they made of if not Titanium to achieve such lightness?
What metal could be being used that is as light as Ti? It is certainly not steel because they would be much heavier
Casio MRGs, PRX and Oceanus watches also say base titanium, which again are very light watches for their size. Are you claiming that Casio are charging over $2000 dollars for watches that are partly made of base metals?

Auction ending today. Current price is out of control, and someone is even offering to buy it for ¥200,000. This thing might go over ¥250,000, possibly ¥300K... Yikes!

However, there seemed no way to get one in the West as they were all preordered.
Now I dont fancy paying over $3000, as the upside is very much reduced.
I did leap on the only other Mastermind Gs and that turned out to be a good decision as the price of these has also shot through the roof.
seen that box for around £500 at a few places.
I think it was a valentines release if I remember correctly.
Wow Mitch, another new series you are putting together. I hope you will get the Frog sooner than later
