    Ti submariner

    If rolex made a titanium sub what do you think would be a reasonable price?

    They would probably put a premium of a couple of K's over the MSRP of a 114060 or 116610.
    If that would be reasonable or not, I don't know. In any case, I don't think they would ever produce one anyway because it would compete, price wise, with the Sea Dweller 4000. On top of that, Rolex already makes a diver's watch in titanium and that's the Tudor Pelagos.

    Submariners are not, in my opinion, bulky or heavy enough to warrant a titanium version. The new Steinhart titanium is intriguing, however:

    Tudor already covered this slot perfectly with the Pelagos, a great purpose built dive/ tool watch. It's truly a large bang for your buck piece that was built to work. With this in mind, I don't think we're going to see a Ti Rolex Sub in the near future. Cheers

    Do other brands charge a meaningful premium for titanium? It seems more like a fun option than an expensive feature. But, yeah, the sub is only 40mm and it's not very thick -- there's not a lot to be gained with a titanium version.

    Not always....Tempest titanium Commodore is less expensive than their steel Viking with the same movement.

    What I would think or what Rolex would think? Me, no more than the SS version as it's freaking expensive enough. Rolex, meh, 10k..

    If Rolex made a Ti sub the reasonable price would probably be 1/3 of what they would ask for it. Of course it would be a special alloy bespoke for Rolex and made in their own Ti foundry or something along those lines. A year later Omega would raise the price on the Ti PO to establish it as a competitor lol.

    $10k sounds about right.
