Disadvantages of titanium watches
Besides all these advantages, titanium watches also have a few disadvantages.
Titanium watches can also scratch
Depending on the alloy and the oxide layer, titanium watches are harder than stainless steel watches, but not scratch-resistant. For this reason, some watch manufacturers additionally seal the surface of their watches so that it becomes even more insensitive.
Titanium watches are more expensive than stainless steel watches
The elaborate manufacturing process and the complicated processing of the material naturally has its price, which is why titanium watches are usually more expensive than comparable watches made of stainless steel. Nevertheless, titanium watches are still significantly cheaper than luxury watches made of gold or platinum.
Titanium watches are not as variable as stainless steel watches
Unlike models made of steel, which can be matte or shiny depending on the processing, titanium watches naturally have a silver-gray, matte and relatively characteristic appearance, which makes them not as variable in finishing (e.g. polishing or brushing) as, for example, watches made of stainless steel.
Titanium watches are (too) light
What is an advantage for some is a disadvantage for others: some watch wearers find the light weight of a titanium watch on the wrist irritating, while others like the comfort of wearing lightweight watches.
