FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) About Vintage Titanium Watches

Are vintage titanium watches worth the money?

Titanium watches are more expensive than their stainless steel counterparts but offer more durability. This metal has an impressive strength-to-weight ratio and offers increased corrosion resistance compared to other metals.

What is the best grade of titanium for watches?

Grade 2 Titanium – This is the most commonly used grade of titanium in watch manufacturing. It has a relatively low tensile strength and is highly ductile, which makes it easy to work with. It is also highly resistant to corrosion and has a low density, making it lightweight.

What are the downsides of a vintage titanium watch?

It does not feel right to talk about the benefits of titanium without weighing up the downsides. Compared to stainless steel, titanium is harder to make, therefore the vintage titanium watches mostly cost higher. Moreover, while people know it as being stronger-than-steel, it is also softer. It means titanium is prone to scratch.

What is the difference between Grade 2 and Grade 5 titanium watch?

Grade 2 is all titanium. Grade 5 is an alloy that also includes aluminum and vanadium (6% aluminum and 4% vanadium, which is why it’s also referred to as Ti 6Al-4V). Grade 5 is harder; expect to see Grade 5 in higher-end manufacturing, while lower-priced options might use Grade 2.

How long do titanium watches last?

Durability – Titanium is a tough metal, and watches and jewelry crafted from the element are made to last a lifetime.

Why do people like vintage titanium watches?

The strength of titanium is 30 percent more than stainless steel and is also 45% lighter in weight. As a bonus, it is almost impossible for a titanium watch to rust. The metal can resist all acids with the exception of nitric acid (an acid which is rare in modern daily life).

Why are titanium watches expensive?

Rarity: Titanium is a rare metal and is not as widely available as stainless steel, which can drive up the cost. Production costs: Titanium is more difficult to work with and manufacture than stainless steel, which results in higher production costs and can contribute to the higher price of titanium watches.

Can you scratch a vintage titanium watch?

In some ways, yes. Titanium is not inherently scratch proof, but the natural oxidisation of the alloy allows for smaller scratches to become less visible over time. A vintage titanium watch will still pick up the occasional noticeable scratch, as is an unfortunate aspect of life.

Can you polish a vintage titanium watch?

The good news is that it is possible to remove this surface scratching and refinish your vintage titanium watch case. Deeper scratches will need to be filled by a professional, but it is quite straightforward to buff out a scratch in titanium with some inexpensive equipment.

How do you clean an old titanium watch?

Wash the titanium with a mild liquid dish soap and warm water. Work the soap into a foaming lather, and gently rub it over the metal to remove any dirt, grease or grime. Rinse the metal with warm water and dry using a clean towel.

Does titanium lose its shine?

Titanium rings come in variety of colors and can also be colored on demand. A true titanium ring never loses its shine and glow due to its color because titanium rings don’t get painted and neither any sort of coating or plating is applied on them. The coloring technique used on titanium rings is called oxidization.

Can you wash titanium with water?

Grab a bowl of lukewarm water and put a small amount of mild dish soap in it – about half a cup. Add your titanium ring to the bowl and soak for about 5 minutes. Get a clean cloth and gently remove any dirt by rubbing the cloth over the ring. Rinse the ring with warm water and dry with a clean towel.

Can titanium watch rust?

Rust resistance – Don’t worry about exposing a titanium watch to the elements—the material is nearly rust-proof. If you’re a seafaring traveler, you can rest easy as titanium is resistant to corrosion from saltwater, making it an ideal material for dive retro watches and other submersible timepieces.
