Thanks. The watch isn't titanium, but a bead-blasted stainless steel. The bead-blasting gives it a flatter look that is reminiscent of titanium. The down-side to this finish is that you can't buff out scratches, but I think a few scratches are appropriate on a tool-watch like this.

I might have preferred a round date portal like those on Bell & Ross watches - it would make the face look a little more refined. However, given how large the hands and numerals are, I don't even notice the date when I read the time. I do like having the date function there when I need it.
^ Very odd comment. I understand you dislike the logo but don't see any connection whatsoever with Ed Hardy or other ephemeric fashion brand. If anything, it's in the line of an old tradition of luxury good makers in Europe (see Chanel, Gucci, Vuitton, etc...)
