Super Titanium - a material for titanium watches with maximum wearing comfort.
A material exclusively for CITIZEN, Super Titanium is produced by processing solid titanium and treated with our proprietary surface hardening technology, Duratect. Super Titanium retains the original properties of lightness and smoothness on the skin, but adds strength, hardness and beauty to the titanium, making it superior to stainless steel. Super Titanium can be the perfect material for the Titanium watch you wear on your wrist every day.
Scratch resistant Super Titanium: 5 times harder than stainless steel
Super Titanium has been developed so that you can enjoy your new Titanium watch in its original condition for as long as possible. Through the treatment of solid titanium, which is soft and difficult to process, we have achieved five times the surface hardness of stainless steel with CITIZEN’s in-house surface hardening technology, Duratect. This protects your Titanium watch from scratches and makes it look as good as it did on the day you bought it.
Light weight Super Titanium is 40% lighter than stainless steel
Super Titanium is approximately 40% lighter than stainless steel. It is enough to hold a titanium watch in your hand to see how extraordinarily light it is – so light, that it is barely noticeable on the wrist. Whether in the office, at home or in leisure time, our customers appreciate the feeling of lightness on their wrists. The fact that a watch is worn around the clock has inspired us to develop Titanium watches that are as comfortable as possible to wear. This idea has led to the development of Super Titanium.
Gentle to the skin Super Titanium is anti-allergic
Massive titanium is naturally antiallergic and gentle to the skin. As standard coating processes involve the use of other metals, they impair the natural antiallergic properties of titanium. CITIZEN developed its own technologies to successfully solve this problem and protect against nickel and metal allergies by using our surface hardening technology, Duratect. This means that even people with sensitive skin, who normally have to avoid any kind of metal, can wear a Super Titanium watch.
Resistant to rust Super Titanium is resistant to rust.
Super Titanium is resistant to salt and fresh water. This means that the watches can be worn in every day-to-day situation. Also persons who are professionally or come into contact with water in the home, these watches are perfectly suited for this purpose. Super Titanium Watches are rugged and resistant and do not lose any of their original shine even under heavy stress. *Rust can occur on models whose metal band is connected to pins that are not made of Super Titanium. We recommend regular cleaning.
Good watch. Nice to wear. Good balance between size and weight. Date window could be a little bit larger. Good price performance. We will see in the future how good is eco drive.
Markku Kastinen –
I bought a watch to swim with, further requirements being no need to ever change the battery and looking more expensive than its price. With those requirements met, the watch has proved very accurate. Showing precision time, not a second early or late after a week on my wrist.
