    Hi Everyone,

    I'm considering the purchase of a Ti INOX watch, specifically either model # 241812, or #241810. Could any members who own one of these give their opinions, pro/con, insight on these? Also, I see a wide range of prices out there. Where do you think the best deal can be had, from a reputable outlet?

    thanks in advance!

    Have the orange titanium. It is beautiful. I had the stainless steel one too. The ti is remarkably lighter.

    the wrist band is a bit stiff. Generally, no complaints at all.

    I placed the order for INOX model 241812, which has a black face, yellow/black second hand and comes with 2 black straps" paracord and rubber. I got the "last one" on Amazon for a very good price and got a notification this A.M. that it had shipped and will arrive on Tuesday. I'm just hopeful that it being the "last one" doesn't portend any issues.

    Unless the watch is out of production it probably will not be the last one Amazon ever ships.... :)

    the INOX arrived yesterday. Very impressed with the watch, but not the paracord strap. It is difficult, if not impossible, to close the strap one-handed. The strap might be a bit too short for bigger people.

    I love the watch but have ordered a NATO strap to use instead. The INOX comes with a black rubber strap, but the loops which hold the excess length are yellow. not a great look for the office.

    I love the watch.

    black and yellow sound really cool. I’ve yet to truly understand why paracord watch straps are a thing. The feeling of a wet paracord watch strap after washing hands must feel so icky.

    May I request pics of your new watch?

    suburbDad,

    Here you go...

    I just took these quickly at my desk. I tried to capture the inane design of the paracord strap, which looks nice enough on the wrist but doesn't work well in real life unless you have someone on-hand to assist.

    The yellow accents rock. Great purchase!

    Took a pic showing the new NATO strap; I liked the look of the paracord strap but it is too much of a hassle to deal with on an everyday basis.

    Looks great. Really dig the striped second hand. May I suggest a gray or black with thin yellow striping nato? The gray case is killer; very different than the usual shiny silver of steel.

    karlito,

    we are on the same wavelength! The NATO strap shown was purchased before I received the watch. I do plan on getting another strap that includes yellow. Can't decide on charcoal or black, though. hmmmm And the striped second hand drew my eye as well. thanks!
