  • Titanium watches: anti-allergic, stronger and lighter then a steel watch

    Titanium watchesA titanium watch has special features that a normal steel watch does not have. A timepiece made of titanium is stronger, lighter and anti-allergic. Do you suffer from allergic reactions such as rash, itching or irritation from a steel watch? Then choose a titanium watch. Chances are you will be released from your problems. In this blog you can read about the advantages of a titanium watch.


    What is titanium?

    Titanium is a metal type that is extracted from rutile ore. Pure titanium is quite difficult to obtain because this metal oxidizes fairly quickly and reacts with carbon. It was only in 1922 that it was first successful to prepare pure titanium. Titanium is not very rare: it is abundant in minerals on the earth.


    What is the difference with steel?

    Titanium is especially very resistant to corrosion. In principle it is just as strong as steel but has a much lower density, with titanium you can achieve the same strength but with less weight. Titanium is resistant to very low and very high temperatures, which is why titanium is widely used in aviation and aerospace. In addition, it is also very light, which is certainly useful when building a rocket or an airplane!


    Anti allergic

    Because titanium is anti-allergic, strong and easy to work with, it is also a popular material in the jewelry industry. It is also regularly used for watches. Titanium is a particularly good solution for people who are allergic to steel. Titanium is very resistant to sunlight, water and perspiration.


    Titanium watches

    If you choose a titanium watch, you choose a skin-friendly, light and strong watch. Various brands have titanium timepieces in the range. WatchXL also has a large number of titanium watches, including V.O.S.T. and Citizen. In addition, there are also steel watches with a titanium coating. This is of course not the same.

    In addition to the V.O.S.T. watches you will also find Citizen watches made of Super Titanium: a material 5x harder than steel, very light and very comfortable to wear. Super Titanium is obtained by extra hardening the surface of the material. This makes super titanium watches even more scratch resistant, lighter and anti-corrosion. The anti-allergic properties of a Citizen Super Titanium watch are even better.

    A titanium watch is therefore a good choice. They are stronger, much lighter and above all better for your skin.

  • TW Steel Limited Tom Coronel Edition: TCR racing watch

    TW Steel SVS304 Swiss Volante watchThe TW Steel Coronel SVS304 is a striking red watch from the TW Steel Swiss Volante collection. Striking, because it is certainly not a watch that goes unnoticed and it is very red! This watch was specially designed for Tom Coronel on the occasion of his participation in the TCR, the world touring car championships. In this blog we will take a close look at the SVS304 for you.


    The appearance

    Looking at the product photos you might not notice it, but the case of the SVS304 has an anthracite to dark gray color. Where many TW Steel watches have a shiny case, the watch case of this Coronel watch is mat. The lunette however is not mat at all: it is as brilliant as the morning star on a summer morning. It's color is best described as deep black wit a really nice contrast considered with the bright red elements that you'll find on the dial and watch strap of the SVS304.

    TW Steel SVS304 watch

    Special watch case

    A striking feature of this watch is the watch lid, the back of the TW Steel SVS304. The Honda Tricorp Honda TCR racing car from Tom Coronel adorns this. Of course you will also find a unique serial number here because this watch is a Limited Edition. There are therefore only 150 made.


    About the specs of this Swiss Volante men's watch

    The SVS304 is ecquiped with a Swiss Ronda Cal. 5030.D movement. Most quartz watches might have a small deviation, the deviation of this Ronda timepiece is minimal: no more than -10 / + 20 seconds per month. Energy source of the Ronda is a type 395 (diameter 9.5 mm x 2.6 mm / SR 927 SW) button cell battery. Excellent performance.

    The SVS304 is also a chronograph that you can use for measuring whatever you want. This watch has of course a date display and you will find a tachymeter around the dial. With a case diameter of 48 mm, the size is pretty reasonable. The thickness of the case is also considerable: we measure 13 mm. Pretty sturdy!

    TW Steel SVS304 mens watch

    Sapphire glas

    Sapphire glass should not be missing with a watch in this price range. Sapphire is a lot harder than ordinary mineral glass, it protects better against scratches and damage. As far as we are concerned, a watch with sapphire glass is always preferred. And the SVS304 does have sapphire glass.

    Beautiful, this watch, but if the first raindrop is already upsetting it then it doesn't help you much. Luckely this won't happen when wearing the SVS304: it is water proof up to 100 meters.  Basically this means you can go for a swim with this watch and you can even take it out there on your holiday snorkeling adventures! The crown is screwed and in this way better protected against water. The SVS304 is however not suitable for professional divers. A diving watch will be a better option for these kind of actions.


    What about TCR? What does it mean?

    TCR means 'Touring Car Championship'. A touring car championship in which Dutch touring car rally driver Tom Coronel participated. It has been transferred to the WTCR since 2018 (Tom also participates, and that also resulted in beautiful watches).

    The watches mentioned in this blog are all capable of withstanding pressures up to 20 ATM (200 meters). Although most people will not go deeper than that, keep in mind that a watch that is waterproof upt o a depth of 200 meters is only suitable for swimming, snorkeling or diving in shallow waters and not for deep sea diving. Planning to go deep sea diving, then you will need a watch that can handle pressures up to 100 ATM.

Also, no bezel on this watch.The crowns are well protected however.

    The beating heart of this watch is a Swiss Ronda 515 Quartz movement battery that guarantees that the watch runs perfectly on time. The T0201MIL has an illuminating dial: extremely handy in low light conditions! Oh, by the way, this watch displays a second time zone, useful for the long distance traveller. Made of high grade steel, this Tauchmeister divers watch is an excellent timepiece! Find the T0201MIL here>


    3. Tauchmeister T0226 45 mm

    Like the Seiko SKX009K1 and the Tauchmeister T0201, this Tauchmeister T0226 can also endure pressures up to 20ATM. But, unlike those first two, the T0226 is a chronograph. Looking at the picture, you could think this watch is made of plastic; think again.

    TW Steel TW938 Valentino Rossi TW Steel TW938

    There was already a black version and now TW Steel and Valentino Rossi also have a steel chronograph version. The new TW Steel TW938 and tw939 are an amazing expansion of the Valentino Rossi watch collection.

    TW Steel TW936 Valentino Rossi TW Steel TW936 Valentino Rossi

    The new TW Steel TW938 (45 mm) and TW Steel TW939 (48 mm) are stylish pilot watches. The shiny case makes the two watch complete different from its two black brothers, the TW935 en TW936.

    Miyota 6S20 movement
    But in essence the watches are of course the same. The TW Steel TW938 and TW939 have a Miyota 6S20 quartz movement with chronograph and date. In addition, the watches have a tachymeter and the hands and hour markers light up in the dark.

    Valentino Rossi Valentino Rossi

    Number 46
    Since 2013 Valentino Rossi is a TW Steel ambassador. The hallmark of the multiple world champion MotoGP, 500cc, 250cc and 125cc is of course his yellow number 46. The number is very stylishly incorporated in the oversized watch and comes back on the screw cap. In addition is on the cover also the Yamaha Factory Racing team logo engraved, the race team where Rossi is part of.

    The silicon strap of the new Valentino Rossi watches feels incredibly supple. Valentino Rossi's VR46 logo sticks remarkably out of the strap.

    Het Formule 1 seizoen gaat dit weekend van start in Australië. Met Max Verstappen en misschien wel Giedo van de Garde. Hoewel, Sauber wil Van der Garde niet laten rijden. Volgens het team is het niet veilig genoeg voor de coureur, omdat de auto niet aan hem is aangepast. Hoe onveilig was de Fomule 1 in de jaren 50 en 60 wel niet? Menig coureur liet het leven.
