Case Material: Titanium (Ti)
At RZE, our mission is to perfect the craft of titanium watches. We’ve selected titanium for all our watches because of its strength and durability. In fact, titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals. So we managed to make an ultra-hardy watch that’s still light as a feather and super comfortable on the wrist.
On the flip side, the strength and durability of titanium make it one of the more complex metals to work with. We’ve taken advantage of this limitation and turned it into a strength, allowing us to design watches that are minimalistic and classic while keeping costs affordable.
In its natural state, titanium is an incredibly strong metal but its scuffs and scratches are more noticeable compared to steel. But with our signature UltraHex coating, we’ve managed to engineer a lightweight titanium watch that is durable and scratch-resistant.
Titanium is also known for its biocompatibility, it is not harmful or toxic to living tissue due to its resistance to corrosion from bodily fluids. Titanium is hypoallergenic, nickel-free, and safe to be worn 24/7.
In general, using titanium has many benefits over using steel: it makes our watch incredibly durable, allowing you to keep your watches for a very long time, ultimately reducing unnecessary waste.
It’s the conscious choice of using all these materials that aid in our mission of protecting our home planet while crafting beautiful watches.
