I like the thin case, the diameter is over 41mm though and L to L is 49mm, seems kind of big for a dress watch. I also don’t like the cut out on the dial, those always reminded me of someone smiling and missing a tooth.
I hope they take this movement into other thin, smaller cases with more dial selections. Perhaps in the future they will have something I can’t resist.

Well thank you very very much Sir Lawyer Aidroos !!! :D:cool:

I love how Titan seems to really think outside the box with their
designs, as well as watchmaking in general. 😉🏆 In a way the
watches pay tribute to watchmaking, as well as watchmakers
by really pushing the limits. Because you have this beautiful
dress watch that looks both timeless, and like it came back
from the future in a time machine.

Actually is incredible from that thinness, to cutting edge style.
Wow, and the movement is a work of art as well it looks like. 😮
..What a fantastic find LA !

Thanks so much once again for the report !

Agree, back side looks better than the front.
Can be said for some humans too, I suppose.

I doubt it. 2 versions, with each limited to 100 units, sets the total at 200 units. I haven't seen it in person yet, don't think I'll get a chance.

I hope so too. Currently only the thickness and hand wound movement caught my attention.

I'm not certain where they sourced the movement from. They have given it an in-house nomenclature ure. Titan, under Tata group, which owns Jaguar-Land rover group, is known to source watch movements from China and at times has used citizen's cheaper miyota movements.
They don't speak much about this new thin 2.2 mm caliber's development.
Much like Raymond Weil who are with eta and sellita claiming these mere modifications as I house calibre 4000 series.

If the movement is truly made in India from scratch, I'll add one.

The link I shared has the official manufacturer shipping the watch. Other AD have not received these yet. Great news, its confirmed the movement is made in Switzerland. Most likely by the Tata owned sister one of the oldest watch companies Favre leuba. Great heritage here.

With 30m water resistance, it doesn't sound like a sports watch either...

At the same time, the proprietary strap design is annoying, try getting a replacement anywhere else but in their own online shop. That is a giant turn-off for me.
Its an unique and strange collector's item at best.
You are correct Sir.
