    Ti watches look good but from all I hear they are easy to scratch and damage. I have
    a couple of Ti wedding rings and they really took a beating so I quit wearing them. Each and
    everyone to their own choice.

    Ti watches fall into two categories. Ridiculously easy to scratch, or nearly impossible to do so.

    Can't speak about other brands, but Citizen's Ti offerings definitely fall into the latter category.

    I have an ecodrive diver that is 22 years old and never needed battery or service. I have two seiko kinetics, not solar, that have needed regular battery changes, like every 10 or 15 years.

    I have an 8 year old Seiko chronograph that I wear frequently, and other than the usual desk diving marks on the clasp, it doesn't have a mark on it. That said, I have an indoor job, and a beater for playing outside, so that probably helps.

    Bertucci 12703 A-2T. Amazingly accurate. Only had it 2 weeks, but I do like it.[​IMG]

    Edited to add: I do wish the hands were more luminous. A bit dim, and my eyesight doesn't help. If it had Indiglo-type feature, I might never take it off......
