Super Titanium Technology
Titanuim coated with Citizen's Proprietary surface hardening technology.
How it works
Citizen has always strived to innovate. When it comes to the materials we use we take the same approach. In 1970, we launched the world’s first watch using solid titanium that is light-weight, hypoallergenic and resistant to rusting. By applying Citizen's proprietary surface hardening technology, Duratect, to crafted solid titanium, we created Super Titanium™. Achieving more than 5 times the hardness of stainless steel and providing better wearing comforts, Super Titanium™ represents Citizen's pursuits for bringing something better to people’s life.
Harder materials, less scratches
Keeping your watch scratch free and undamaged doesn’t mean you have to hide it away in your dresser. Super Titanium™ provides the ideal solution to the beauty vs. preservation dilemma. Thanks to Citizen's proprietary surface hardening technology, Duratect, Super Titanium™ makes your watch incredibly resistant to daily wear and tear.
Lighter for better comfort
Super Titanium™ is approximately 40% lighter than stainless steel. So light that you might forget you are wearing a watch. Appreciate better comfort on your wrist, whatever you may do.
A gentle metal that's kind to your skin
Super Titanium™ reduces the risk of adverse skin reaction to metals thanks to the use of hypoallergenic solid titanium and CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology. Even people with sensitive skin do not have to be concerned about skin irritation when wearing Citizen Super Titanium™ watches.
Note: Super Titanium™ does not prevent reaction to all metal allergies.
Corrosion resistant, for lasting beauty
Super Titanium™ is more resistant to corrosion including when coming in contact with salt water. Wherever you are and whatever you do, you can rely on Super Titanium™ to ensure your watch looks its best.
