Did the Strike One hour repeater come in titanium?

Recently, I've seen an advertisement for one. The Strike One was launched a decade ago. I wasn't aware that it came in titanium. Anyone remember what that was about?

Yes indeed it was

Very good looking piece I must add. Just not sure about the practicality of the complication... other than it being a complicated one...

Good point

An alarm watch would probably be more practical. The hour repeater would just be a nice background chime. Jim

I remember reading they found titanium had better sound than steel

That was the reason titanium being the case material chosen. Cazalea

I have a Tudor Heritage Advisor alarm. It's in titanium, and it's quite loud. I wander how precious metals compare to other metals? jim

I believe there was two editions

One in gold with hammer visible and on/off switch in a little window and the second titanium one with much larger opening on the dial to make more of the mechanism visible. I seriously considered one until I realized that it only chimes once on each passi... 

I see!

Thanks. I didn't realize that it chimed only once. Then, it's not as useful as a sonnerie. Jim
