JM is on the money. the psychologists might've been thinking about tear drop pattern and not paisley :facepalm:

Does anyone here wear a titanium watch?

 

I ask because I'm allergic to stainless steel, and I've recently discovered that a possible solution is a titanium watch.

 

Any experience/recommendations?

I don't, but I have some friends who do. 

 

It depends upon style and size. 

 

If you don't mind a larger watch and if you're happy with a sports watch, rather than a dress watch, then the Tudor Pelagos is a great option:

 

 

Omega also make a Seamaster "Planet Ocean" diving watch in titanium, but it's about twice the price of the Tudor:

 

 

 

Looking at less expensive watches, Citizen (owned by Seiko) also make a few titanium watches:

They also look sporty, although this particular model is more of a classical, dress watch:

By the way, at the risk of doubting you, are you sure that you're allergic to *all* stainless steel, or just to the lower quality stuff? 

 

I'm reminded of a friend of mine who had a cheap diving-style watch by Lorus or something like that (cheap Japanese-owned brand) back when we were at university and he got a bad rash on his wrist. When he looked at the back of the watch, part of the case-back and even part of the side of the watch case had been corroded - partially corroded away - by his sweat and he ended up with a really nasty rash on his wrist that took a couple of weeks to heal. 

 

When he got a watch made from a better grade of stainless steel, he didn't have a rash and he didn't have any corrosion problems.

There is no such thing as an allergy to metal. If you get a rash from a metal watch bracelet, it's contact dermatitis, which is a local irritant reaction to chemicals rather than being an immune-mediated inflammatory response.

 

High-quality stainless steel is biologically non-irritant - and hence used to make surgical instruments - so your problem is most likely due to a chemical reaction between your sweat and some leaching-out constituent of a low-grade metal alloy.

Why not kazuna, did you go off him?

Whilst it would depend on the fabric, on average what do shirts from OH/SS cost?
post #67048 of 67946

I saw the Fox Solid Oak Umbrella at Stand Hatters. To be honest, it is elegant, but a little too understated and expensive for what it is.  I think I'll get the Kent Wang Tiger wood or Whangee instead.

Thanks for your very informative replies, JM and Cox. Much appreciated. The problem probably is due to low-quality stainless steel. I'll have to make sure that my replacement watch is either titanium, or high-quality stainless steel.
