    I'm going nuts over here! If it's stainless steel, then I want one! If it's titanium, then I'll pass.........

    I know all the press info says Titanium, Jeremy says Titanium, but that's 2 dealers that have them in stock and claim SS... AAARRRGGG...

    If Jeremy says Ti, then it is so. My literature from Ball says Ti as well. Now my Hydrocarbon Chrono is Ti, with a Ti/SS bracelet, and I got to tell you it is quite hefty due to the antimagnetic resistancy..

    It's not just the heft, it's the scartch resistance. I find Ti scuffs much easier. I also do not care for the darker color...

    Funny thing I have asked a friend who has handled it and taken pictures of it and he swears he thought it was stainless steel. He is going back to his AD to double check for me. This is a guy who has owned and traded countless watches, he knows the difference...

    I will wait until I see more people with them...

    Can't blame a guy for crossing his fingers and hoping, even when the odds are against him! Call me the watch Rudy...

    The thing also says the accents are green(I wish, grey is boring!) So I think its wrong anyway.
