Whatever watch it is that we bring in for review, we always make sure to run down the “hard specs” on a watch. Â This includes the physical dimensions of the watch, as well as its weight. Â For our August 2015 Giveaway, we will be giving away the lightest (at 36g) and thinnest watch (< 4mm) watch I have ever reviewed – the Titan Edge.
When it comes to lightweight watches, if you want it made out of metal, the obvious choice is titanium, and that is definitely what we have here. Â For going thin, unless you want a stratospheric price, you are going to end up opting for a quartz movement – again, this is what the Titan Edge has inside.
Given that I am much more used to wearing bulkier watches made from stainless steel, having something as light as the Titan Edge on the wrist was something quite different. Â This is a watch you truly can forget that you have on your wrist, as it is not all that noticeable on the wrist. Â While there is a lot to like, the strap is the one weak spot that I noted in the review. Â Then again, at 22mm, it’s a standard size to replace – just make sure you find something suitably light (perhaps a braided perlon might work well).
Strap aside, this would be a fun watch for just about any collection, given that it is likely going to be quite different from anything else you own. Â For your opportunity to win your own Titan Edge, you will need to do two things:
- Comment below with what your favorite lightweight and/or titanium watch (that you own, or would like to own). Â If we cannot match a comment on this post to your entry in the giveaway widget, you will be disqualified.
