Am wearing the "mighty mighty Titan" today (Marcello C. Tridente Titanium, Limited Edition) and thought I'd share some photos. :)

Cheers

Matt,

I love that watch dial and hands!

A question for you: as beautiful as it is, how hard is the titanium bezel? Does it have a coating or something like Citizen uses to harden Ti, or does it need to be babied a little bit?

John,

I haven't "babied" mine at all. The bezel still looks like new, I usually get scratches and swirlies on the bracelet and clasp ("deskdiving traces"), but this stuff can be brushed with the 3M Scotchbrite pad just like steel and it will oxidize within a day or two and look like new again afterwards.

Comparing it with my other Ti watches, the Breitling Chrono Avenger has the "softest" Ti, the Tridente Ti is harder and compares with the Omega X-33 and the Citizen has the "hardest" Ti. While all of the others can be easily "brushed" to restore the dull Ti finish when scratched, the Citizen somehow is harder to restore though and the finish looks more shiny.

The dull Ti look is interesting, but the material feels incredibly comfortable on the skin, even on cold days outside or very warm days with poring sweat. Still can't believe how light it is in spite of its size (as compared to the steel Tridente).

Cheers

Matt
