    Help in choosing the right watch. Is there such a watch?

    New to the forum, old to the world. Looking for a new watch.

    It has to be titanium as all SS corrode on my hand creating sharp edges.
    Solar or Kinetic with quartz accuracy. Not automatic and without user replaceable battery.
    Date and preferably Day Of Week.
    Sapphire glass.
    Analog
    Without radio control as I am out of coverage.

    The closest I got was with Seiko SBPX103 but it does not have DOW.
    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Would you mind elaborating a bit on how stainless steel corodes on your hands?

    There are plenty of titanium Citizen Eco Drives with day-date functions. They may not have a sapphire crystal, but can you get an aftermarket crystal to swap out?

    It is probably allergy plus the acidity of my sweat.
    The metal disintegrates over time to some degree, creating sharp edge that cuts my hand.

    Junghans makes solar powered watches with ceramic cases/bracelets and sapphire crystals. They are radio controlled though, but does that really matter? I think you can set it manually nonetheless, and it'll work like any other quartz when it's out of range(?).

    Some of them have sapphire crystals, so these are definitely an option:

    Sounds annoying. Best of luck with your search

    @ffritz
    Junghans looks great alas out of my budget.
    As to Citizen Eco-drive, Please can you be more specific with a model.
