    Octo Finissimo : Black Ceramic vs Sandblasted Titanium?

    Thought I'd solicit some thoughts on which of these two Bulgari Octo Finissimos to target.

    I like the idea of getting the limited edition titanium wit blued hands, but black ceramic seems like it would hold up better over time?

    I have the original Octo in Titanium and find it perfect. The blue numbers took away from the subtle appearance of the watch. The black titanium had coolness factor, but again was bold for me. If I wanted to go for bold, I liked the gold version.

    a big deal for me is readability. Its cool when you're younger, but as you age, that black titanium is going to be impossible to read.
    Gimme that gold first and foremost but then the sandblasted grey all day

    Ceramic of course. Much more exotic and interesting.

    What "black titanium"? There is a titanium model and a ceramic model.

    +1 for black ceramic. Really caught my eye when it released.

    Sorry typo for reading too fast. Black Ceramic is hard to read.

    I thought the titanium looks more legible. How does the ceramic look in person (assuming you managed to handle it)?
