    Recommendations for a Titanium GMT

    Hi!

    I have been doing my own research on this but have come up short so far...

    I am looking for recommendations for a Titanium GMT. Titanium because my skin does not like nickel (yes even 316L doesnít work). Case back, crown, buckle and bracelet (if itís metal) all have to be titanium or non-steel. Ceramic would work, but they tent to either be above budget or have steel parts.

    Budget anywhere up to 5k, but preferably around the 2k-3k mark. Mechanical, donít mind if itís automatic of manual wind.

    I like the Omegas Seamasters - there are a few titanium options amongst them, but they are over budget. Specially the terra aqua titanium, but again over budget... Only thing in budget I found was a Stowa Flieger GMT. Not a bad option, but itís a little too utilitarian. Anything else anyone can think of? Or is the Stowa the way to go?

    Thank you!

    The Steinhart Ocean Titanium 500 GMT Premium is only $706 from Gnomon. Well below what youíre budgeting.

    If you donít mind used I would highly recommend the PO GMT in titanium. Iíve seen some go for under 5k. That watch is beautiful, just big and thick but the titanium alleviates that problem perfectly. Omegas grade 5 titanium is really awesome alsoónot as dark and more resistant to scratches than steel. Iíve got the non gmt model and it is fantastic; POís are made for titanium imo.

    As stated you are not in the Omega budget so the steinhart as mentioned is an excellent option.

    Thank you, I saw the Steinhart, but that had a Stainless Steel back! I has ready to buy it, only to see that the back was a slightly different color from the rest of the case, so looked into it further.

    I am certainly keeping an eye out for the PO, I have seen them from US based sellers for just under 5k, but import taxes (I am based in Ireland) are at 23% + 2.5% customs duty + charges from the shipping company for handling the import. Which sadly puts them out of budget again...

    That shouldnt be a game changer MC
    You cant see the back on your wrist ;)

    I have a Tudor Bronze BB, with an anodized SS back, different shade, never see it - no issue

    The Titanium Steinhart is a beauty & a bargain IMHO

    This titanium Citizen when it arrives shortly looks outstanding for its price point

    Ha, I wish - the reason I want Titanium is a nickel allergy that shows up with stainless steel, 316L has up to 10% nickel for example. If the case was made form steel and the back from Titanium I would be fine, but not the other way around
