Consistent with its earth tone motif, the Titan comes in three colors options, including black, black with an orange dial, and flat dark earth, which is the model I received. The dial is a matte khaki-ish color; a color that continues throughout the watch. Bold, crisp superluminova numerals consume the dial’s real estate, which is what one would want for easy readability. Combined with the Titan’s 11 multicolor Tritium tubes strategically placed throughout the dial, REACTOR introduces the user to its patented Never Dark® illumination, which allows for 24/7 visibility under any lighting condition.

Outlining the dial you will find REACTOR’s internal timing bezel, which is manipulated by a large rubberized crown located in the 2 o’clock position. Unlike REACTOR’s exterior bezel, the interior bezel is bi-directional, which I found to be easily moved off-course with a nudge. In addition, the print on the interior bezel is quite small, which makes it hard to read, even for a person with 20/20 vision. While this is purely subjective, I would have liked for REACTOR to have given the dial a bit more breathing room by removing the internal bezel all together. While it adds great depth to the dial, its functionality left me wanting more.

As briefly mentioned above, the exterior dive-like bezel is tough and sturdy, which provides the user with 120 loud clicks of uni-directional goodness. During my pre-review inspection, I found zero play in its operation. While conducting real-world scenarios, the exterior bezel remained locked into position, giving me the utmost confidence in recommending the Titan to warriors worldwide.

Ariel Soltura has had a passion for watches since an early age; one that was passed onto him by his father, who was one of a handful of people to own a Rolex GMT on the island of Cuba, where Ariel was born. Ariel Soltura, who is a full time police officer, husband, father and Dive Watch aficionado, is well respected in the watch community for his honest thoughts and comments on "all things watches." When not patrolling the streets, throwing footballs with the community's youth or perusing various watch forums, he can be found hanging out with his six year old son, Aric, his greatest passion of all.

  1. The rubberized knob for the internal bezel dose have a screw down lock so it won’t move. Push the knob down and screw it down.
