By TLex The REACTOR Poseidon gets a new Titanium sibling. Not only is the new watch lighter, more corrosion resistant and more comfortable on the wrist than the Steel Poseidon, but it marks a new era in REACTOR Watches' watchmaking history.
It is their first ever model to be fitted with a mechanical movement. The transition from Quartz to Hybrid to Mechanical has been a relatively short one for the Californian watch company, who had always felt that mechanical movements kind of went against the natural grain of what professional sports watches should be about.
Quartz movements are not only extremely accurate and reliable, but they are incredibly robust, able to take the kind of punishment that would be dealt out by the demanding sports and activities that Reactor's customers use them for. However REACTOR are confident that they have found a the mechanical movement in the Japanese made Miyota 9015 that will continue to offer excellent performance . . .
From REACTOR The 1000M depth-rated Titanium Poseidon features a 48mm case with exhibition caseback and dual rotating timing bezels. The internal bezel is bi-directional (operated by the 2 o’clock crown), while the external bezel is unidirectional and features a precision 120-click mechanism. In addition, both Poseidon Ti models feature REACTOR’s patented Never Dark dial technology, combining tritium tubes and SuperLuminova, for the ultimate in low light and no light performance.
The limited edition mechanical version is shipped in an over-sized, color-matched gift box and includes a solid titanium bracelet and a rubber strap, along with special tools and extra screw bars for easy band swaps. The quartz version is shipped in REACTOR’s second life cylinder package and is equipped with a titanium bracelet. Both watches will begin shipping at the end of May with a suggested retail of $1,500.00 and $900.00 respectively.
