    Titanium

    I wanna know your opinions on the Titanium bracelet that Protreks and some G-shocks have.
    My personal view is that it's very comfortable, lightweight and also no problems of irritation, allergic, etc. I also think it can protect you from an impact hehe:-D

    hi batman,

    I agree, the titanium bracelet on my PRG 80YT is one of the most comfortable to wear I've ever had, but the same I can say about the stainless bracelets of g-shocks. very well made, good looking (IMO) and reliable, just like a watch - or parts of it - should be.

    Not a fan.

    I can't get used to the lightness. Must be after years of wearing half-pounder divers watches. :-X

    I think it is very confortable. But very easy to get scratch and dented easily.

    Ti doesn't have the *cold* feeling of SS

    (try putting on a SS and a Ti watch on a cold winter morning and you will see what i mean )

    and i like the darker tone of Ti color better

    if you are afraid of scratches on Ti, there's always the MTG7100 with DLC coating :-D

    I agree, I tried a titanium Casio and it just felt far too insubstantial and prone to damage. I prefer the feel of 'real metal'.

    Hi Batman,

    Titanium is a very light metal (like Magnesium) and is very strong. I think it has it's pro's and contra's. The Titanium bracelets are often not hardened, so after short use you will see wear. Actually these watches are meant to be worn, so that's not a big point.

    Because it's so light material, the watch feels like air. We all must try a MRG-121. That's a solid SS model with solid SS links. That's a watch you feel, and I must say I like that.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Re: Titanium

    well i had impression that titanium is less prone to wear and tear than stain less steel?
    also i would like that casio makes a whole metal watch.as i see the prg 80 yt etc have only titanium bracelet,it would be real practical to make watche.s main body too in titanium.
