Titanium Dive Watches?

Post by wadsy » Wed Jul 25, 2018 2:00 pm

I currently have an ETA Pelagos and I'm thinking of getting a Sinn T2 as well.

Are they any other titanium dive watches that I should consider?

I'm primarily looking at titanium for lightweight and comfort reasons.

Cheers :thumbsup:

Thanks chaps :thumbsup:

The DOXA is one of interest; can anyone provide specs on it please?...weight, diameter, lug length, etc?

Many thanks

in addition to those already mentioned:
iwc aquatimers (3536/38 ref)
omega seamaster pro (2231 ref)
seiko shogun

if you're strictly going for weight (lack thereof), t2 and shogun are the lightest mentioned thus far (at least ime). i owned the small t2 btw.

The T2 sounds like it could be a good fit for me as an everyday wearer. :)

I've had a Shogun previously and wasn't a fan.

Since you already own #BWITW then I'd go blue PO Ti.
Not much else can touch Pelagos with a black dial in Ti.

Panerai 176, it looks like a dive watch when on an isofrane.

You need a Tempest Commodore (although Sinn T1/T2 are great)

I've had a Shogun before - simply not a fan!...I didn't like the bracelet or the feel of the bezel action :oops:

Maybe I should give it another try!

Mido Ocean Star titanium is a thin comfortable diver and a good value.
