    Need help finding a Titanium Watch!

    Hi,

    I love my old faithful Seiko Chrono Titanium that never died on me. All I need to do is to replace the battery.
    It was a gift from my parents 20 years ago.
    It's gone through up and down in my life, including life and death moment. Yes, that's how special it is for me :)
    Below is the watch I was talking about. Very lightweight and durable. 37mm in diameter.

    Now I am trying to find something similar like it but apparently there are less and less titanium watch like that in production.
    So I am wondering if some forum members here can guide me to where to look.
    My wrist is kind of small so I am looking for watch with these criteria:
    - Titanium material (darker is preferred)
    - Diameter 40mm or less ( I have a 43mm and that's already max on my wrist)
    - Chronograph is preferred but something similar is acceptable, like Rolex Submariner.
    - Price: cheaper is better but probably willing to go to a couple thousand if it's worth it. Actually I was even looking at some Omegas.

    I've looked around to so many different popular brand's offering but not many has similar watch.
    Can some people help?
    Thanks in advance.

    All the big name Titaniums are pricey, Omega, Bremont, Perrelet, etc. reaching well above 5-6k

    Tissot and Hamilton make a few Ti watches under 1k that are quite nice. Worth considering for sure.

    Since you seem to be okay with quartz, Citizen has a few Ti's as well that are quite nice.

    Oris make a few Ti watches as well, their Ti divers tend to be on the larger side though so I dont think you'll find anything there.

    Thanks, jilg..jilgiljongiljing, (Your name is very difficult to spell so I just copy paste it :) ) I like Hamilton but currently it has no style that I like in Titanium.

    Thanks, Brandon. You seem to know what model that I like. I like this one you quoted but with leather strap since it looks better than the one with titanium bracelet. Unfortunately right now I'm looking for a watch with Ti bracelet also since I already have another watch with leather band.
    I will seriously consider this one if I can't find anything I like better.

    Thanks, yankeexpress. This watch will be too big for my wrist. But I'm glad that you mention this brand since I never knew it before. I will take a look what other models they are offering.

    Thank you, rappasol. That's a good looking watch. But I don't think I like a square watch that much.

    Thank you, Triton9. I was looking at this Tudor Pelagos too but I don't really like the dial. It's too plain for me.
