"The new titanium alloy was developed with Nippon Steel Corporation over a six-year period of R&D. This special alloy delivers roughly twice the hardness of pure titanium, but still boasts the same lightweight, anticorrosive and hypoallergenic properties. This intense hardness makes it possible to produce a mirror finish comparable to stainless steel on titanium, which typically has been difficult to process in this way. The result is the first titanium G-SHOCK with a mirror-finished bezel and band."

If they make it in a solid raw titanium color I want it. Not sure the reasoning behind this picture unless they’re just trying to show that they can make it in many colors. The gold is cool but I already have it in gold stainless and the coating tech they use is so scratch resistant that upgrading to a gold titanium one likely wouldn’t be worth it to me.
