Titanium Divers

Don’t really need one but I’m interested in trying a titanium diver. Since I love my Black Bay 58, grabbing a Pelagos 39 naturally made since. However, I could capture similar vibes for a fraction of the price with the Certina DS Action Diver 38. What do you think? Anyone have hands on experience with both?

I’m not sure of your vibe, but if you are open to pre owned, there are some amazing ones out there. Three from left field, maybe a tad larger, but all titanium divers on bracelet form very well regarded brands.

Definitely considering used. I like the Breitling, how big is it?

It’s big, I mean big, wears well, but it’s an old school full 44.

I had it’s super quartz chrono brethren with pushers that are operational underwater. I want to say they are like 15-17 mm thick. Def a watch that wears better than it sounds.

Yikes, definitely don’t want to go bigger than the Seamaster

The Sinn T50 might be worth a look.

Pelagos FXD is another option, if I was getting a Pelagos it would be an FXD

The issue with Tudor's titanium watches is that they use Grade 2 titanium, which unfortunately can't be polished or refinished. To have that option within The House of Wilsdorf, one would need to opt for Grade 5 titanium, like the kind used in Rolex's Yacht-Master 42. While the Yacht-Master's RLX titanium offers the durability and refinishing capabilities I prefer, its size is slightly too large for my taste, ruling it out as a personal purchase. Nevertheless, I'm eager to see it up close next week at Watches and Wonders in Geneva.
