Watches that get used in the field need to be tough and reliable, two aspects Reactor nailed down with its newest watch: The Titan.
The Titan was designed to meet the grueling needs of men in the military, law enforcement and the avid outdoorsmen.
The Titan’s 45mm watch case is constructed with a stainless steel core enveloped in a Nitromid cover, a glass-reinforced polymer with a tensile strength higher than steel. This gives the Titan improved durability and impact resistance with the watertight capabilities of a fully stainless steel version at half the weight.
Constructed with a design similar to its popular Gryphon watch, Reactor took a lightweight nylon-webbing watchband and fused it inside a proprietary silicone and natural rubber compound for the Titan. The result is a band that is more durable than nylon or rubber alone that will not absorb odor, dirt or sweat and is comfortable for all day wear.
To further perfect the strength of the Titan, Reactor molded the watchband at each of its connection points around stainless steel tubes eliminating any potential for weakness where the band joins together with the base and buckle.
Additional features of the Titan include dual timing bezels and water resistance to 300M. The internal timing bezel on the Titan is activated by a large 11mm crown located at the 2 o’clock position on the watchcase that was designed for ease of use.
Co-molded with silicone for better grip, the crown locks the internal bezel in place when in the neutral position. Simply press the crown in to engage the internal bezel, adjust the bezel as needed and then release the crown to lock it back in place.
The Titan also has Reactor’s patented Never Dark illumination technology. Never Dark is the first technology to combine the intense brightness of Superluminova with the multi-year longevity of tritium, providing optimal illumination under all lighting conditions. Because it can take up to 30 minutes for the human eye to fully adjust to the dark, Superluminova’s intense peak brightness makes a Never Dark watch easily visible during that initial adjustment period.
In situations where the watch will remain in the dark for many hours, the tritium will remain visible for years, even if the watch is never returned to the light. The Titan has 11 multicolor Tritium tubes dispersed along the dial and timing bezels, and on the hour, minute and second hands for precise night visibility and Superluminova hour markers.
Every Reactor has a solid forged 316L stainless steel or Titanium case and case back and all bracelets are solid link construction. Additionally, every Reactor has solid screw bars for strength, free floating lugs for ultimate comfort, screw down crowns and a proprietary application of true Swiss Superluminova.
The Titan retails for $500 and is available now.
Color options include black, flat dark earth and black with an orange dial.
