Davosa has a wide range of watches. They have divers, aviation, military, racing, and travel. All are very nice but one really stood out to me. While browsing their site I found the Davosa Titanium 46mm model, and I could not wait to check this one out. I got in touch with the folks at Davosa and got a loaner in. Let’s check this one out and go over my thoughts on the watch from my time with it.
I really like the blue sunburst dials. This one really looks fantastic and with the raised index ring there is a nice three dimensional look to it. The bezel has a bit of an industrial look and seems as though its mounted by all those hex screws (though, in all likelihood, they’re decorative). The look of the dial is clean and simple with only the yellow seconds hand adding contrast to the blue and white face. So if you like a simple, clean, uncluttered look, this watch is great.
When they say made from Titanium, they mean it. The case, bezel, screw down crown, and screw down case back are all titanium. Everything fits tightly and the quality is excellent. This case has a lot of cool angles on the bezel, crown guard, and even the lugs. Through the exhibition case back you can see the Swiss made DAV2824 automatic movement which is a ETA 2824 made for Davosa. Measuring in at 46mm this is not a small watch, but I like the way it fit on my wrist. Water resistance is 330ft, which a great swimming or snorkeling around, but I wouldn’t take it diving.Visually this watch is totally cool to me. Its bold but could go just about anywhere if you want.
The Davosa Titanium watches come with two straps. A rubber strap with a cool carbon fiber look and a leather strap. Both feel very good on the wrist, although for my 6.5 inch wrist, they are a little big. Both straps fit perfectly into the lugs which is a very clean look. I also like the fact that even the pin and buckle clasp is made from titanium. Changing the straps is very easy using the included hex drivers. I like that they kept with the whole hex theme here.
Using Swiss Superluminova, the glow on this Davosa Titanium looks great. The hour makers, minute and hour hands are all that are lumed and that looks just fine.
I really don’t have anything bad to say about this Davosa Titanium. Build quality is great, looks excellent, and its totally my style of watch. It even comes in a really cool black lacquer looking case. For a price of $949 USD this is a pretty good deal. If you like what you see, go check them out at davosa-usa.com.

Indeed, it is a great looking watch in this price range. It deftly combines the style features of Royal Oak and Deep One. I alone don’t like the original strap. Probably on the first day I would replace it with an unbranded titanium strap.
