Comfort is an important factor, right? Let’s take a look at our best picks on Seiko titanium watches for men.

Presage Automatic Black “Baby GS Titanium” Ref. SARX057

The first Seiko titanium watch comes from the Presage edition with Automatic Black “Baby GS Titanium” Ref. SARX057. It’s a dress watch that radiates a gentleman’s aura with its stainless steel bracelet and black dial. The watch comes in a neat and clean dial design. It only features a date window, bar hour markers, watch hands, logo, and name, yet gives a strong charm. 

This is a true Seiko titanium watch for men that can be worn on any occasion and feel proud of having it on the wrist. Measured 40.8mm in diameter with a slim profile of 11mm, it can slip nicely under your cuff. The titanium case is treated with Seiko’s DiaShield coating on the case and bracelet, allowing for extra protection against corrosion and scratch.  

Prospex 200M Automatic Titanium Shogun Black Ref. SBDC129

Moving on to the Prospex collection with a bold, powerful, and respected Seiko titanium watch. The Prospex 200M Automatic Titanium Shogun Black Ref. SBDC129 appears unique with a distinctive case design. It retains the angular case shape from the discontinued original JDM shogun, the SBDC007. Like the previous model, the case is built using titanium for durability.

To further enhance the titanium, it’s been treated with Seiko’s proprietary DiaShield super-hard coating for a lightweight, yet rugged experience with added scratch and corrosion resistance properties. This Seiko titanium watch does indeed make a strong presence with a 43.5mm case diameter and shark-teeth hour markers. 

Titanium is also used in the making of the bezel as an upgrade from its predecessor. The bezel can move in 120-click unidirectional and house two-tone colors – a lustrous metallic grey on the 1 to 15 markers and a slight hue of bronze for the 15 to 60 markers.

Prospex Professional 1000M Tuna Ref. SBBN047

Bold, rugged, and big as it looks, the Prospex Professional 1000M Tuna Ref. SBBN047 is unquestionably large. Measured 49.4mm in diameter and 16.3mm in thickness, could you imagine how oversized the watch is? But no worries, despite the large size, the watch features a monobloc titanium case construction. 

That allows the watch to be lighter than it looks and durable as well. The case is also treated with a black super-hard coating to further elevates its durability. Topping it off, this bold watch exhibits a high water resistance for up to 1000m (ISO-certified). 

At the heart of the watch is Seiko’s iconic high-tech quartz movement – the Caliber 7C46. A 7-jeweled movement with extremely hi-torque tolerances and high efficiency. Needless to say, this piece would definitely exert a bold and masculine wrist presence on the wrist.

Presage Ocean Traveler GMT Night Blue Ref. SARF013

The next men’s Seiko titanium watch that you can expect for its features is the Presage Ocean Traveler GMT Night Blue Ref. SARF013. It has a ravishing textured blue dial and blue strap that make the overall appearance feels soothing and eye-catching as well. As the name mention, this is a GMT watch that displays another time zone on the dial. 

A titanium watch construction would be a nice choice for travelers. It’s lightweight and durable which gives extra comfort for adventure to wear it the whole day. The refined titanium case embodies impressive finishes despite being a metal that is significantly tougher to work with compared to stainless steel. That said, not only that it’s lighter than stainless steel but also robust,

 If you’re a venturous globetrotter, a lightweight yet durable, travel-ready GMT timepiece like this Seiko titanium watch certainly makes for a great companion. As for the movement, it is driven by the in-house Seiko caliber 6R64 automatic GMT movement that beats at a smooth 28,800 BPH (4Hz) and provides 45 hours of power reserve.

Alarm Chronograph SNAB91P1

Last but not least is the Seiko titanium watch with an alarm function. The Alarm Chronograph SNAB91P1 also appears in a bold and rugged appearance. As a chronograph, the dial is quite busy yet neat dial layout with three sub-dials in 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions. Together with the alarm function, the watch appears so functional as a tool watch for time measurement.

On the outer ring, you can also spot a tachymeter scale along with the bezel markers. Seiko also equipped the watch with hardlex crystal for better scratch resistance. Driven by Japanese quartz movement, you can expect accuracy in this watch.
