TITONI launches a new Seascoper 300 – this time in the summery color ICE BLUE, which brings a lot of freshness to the collection. However, with two different bezel colors, it’s not just the look that appeals. The ice blue dial conceals technology that we are otherwise only used to seeing in higher-priced models…

Discover the surprising secrets of the two new TITONI Seascoper 300 ICE BLUE

Spring cleaning

Something has changed. Or where else would the good mood suddenly come from? Is it spring that’s just around the corner, longer days at last or temperatures that often climb above 15 degrees, at least in Central Europe? Time for a change of scenery! This also applies to your own wrist. I have something exciting from TITONI…

The brand from Grenchen in Switzerland has once again expanded its Seascoper 300 diver’s watch collection, unveiling two new references in its latest announcement a few days ago. Technically identical to the already familiar sister models, they bring a breath of fresh air to the collection. You can indeed see this, as the models with the reference numbers 83300 S-BK-718 and 83300 S-BE-718 stand out with their ice-blue dial. Especially in summer, it has what it takes to be an eye-catcher and exudes a great deal of lightness.

It’s all about the right shade of blue

The ideal summer watch? Perhaps. It doesn’t take much imagination to picture the TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE on a tanned wrist. Rich in contrast to your complexion, in a partner look with the turquoise blue water you are diving through. Unsurprisingly, the watch is built for such sporty and demanding trips. But more about the diver’s refinements later. 

The first question that probably arises is to what extent the two references differ at all. You have to take a closer look. In the official photos, I first noticed that one watch has a ‘BE’ in its name, the other a ‘BK’. Only then did I realize that the 83300 S-BE-718 has a dark blue bezel, while the 83300 S-BK-718 has a black one.

Now I have both watches here for a watch review. As photo watches, they will – you probably already guessed it – find their way into my store. At first glance, I like the version with the dark blue dial a little better (now that I know the difference). In general, it looks a bit fresher and sportier than its sister model with a black bezel. So I’ll do as I did with the suit – I’ll go for dark blue! And you?

Classic, timeless design – in a fresh look

However, the star of the day is definitely the dial – or more precisely: its incredibly beautiful shade of blue. TITONI chose the ICE BLUE carefully. It is neither the pale baby blue that we know from hand cream tins, nor is it a greenish turquoise that tries to look obsessively youthful, but after two weeks on the wrist is annoying and somehow intrusive. According to TITONI, it was inspired by the blue of the glaciers in the Swiss Alps.

Yes, this ICE BLUE is just right and made to look good on your wrist for a lifetime. So you can be sure that you will still be receiving compliments on this timeless classic in 10, 20 or 30 years’ time. The Seascoper 300 has undoubtedly earned this status. As an ICE BLUE, it is a must-have for the summer. Who says you have to wear an all-rounder all year round? Okay, the TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE also has these qualities, but we’ll come to that later. 

The TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE on the wrist

The fact that this Seascoper 300 was born to become a bestseller for the masses is not only due to its elegant dial color. It is also due to seemingly trivial details such as the case diameter of 42 millimetres, which suits pretty much everyone. Nevertheless, there is no denying that the Seascoper 300 appears somewhat bulkier than it really is and looks larger to the naked eye. This may be mainly due to the design of the case, which measures around 52 millimetres lug to lug. So although the Seascoper can be worn by anyone, it still looks best on those with a slightly wider wrist. In any case, the TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE impressed me in everyday use with its decent wearing comfort.

According to the manufacturer, the Seascoper 300 has a height of 12.55 millimetres, which means it sits quite flat on the wrist and makes a sporty impression. The only question that remains is how critical you view the weight issue. With the stainless steel bracelet, the Seascoper 300 weighs 190 grams. However, the stainless steel bracelet accounts for more than half of this weight. If you prefer lightness (for example when diving), you can opt for one of the many alternatives offered by TITONI.

The TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE: with chronometer certificate

Price question: how does the Seascoper 300 differ from its bigger sister 600? Answer: its movement, among other things. But somehow not. This sentence needs an explanation. It is true that instead of a manufacture caliber, a Sellita SW200-1 works inside the Seascoper 300. That doesn’t sound particularly special, even if a replica of the ETA 2824 is always a solid choice.

The TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE is somewhat different. It has a chronometer certificate from the official Swiss testing laboratory COSC. The fact that the COSC does not exactly throw these certificates around is proven by the institute itself. It states that only 15 percent of all Swiss watches receive this certificate. 

The chronometer certificate indicates the special rate accuracy. It is a maximum of -4 to +6 seconds per day and is tested using elaborate procedures. 

Details of the case

The automatic movement is well protected behind a solid case back, which is highly polished and visually reminiscent of a porthole – a truly beautiful and imaginative detail. TITONI uses robust stainless steel for its case construction. The watch is therefore protected against dust, shocks and pressure, making it suitable for a wide range of uses. Its name is derived from its water resistance to a depth of 300 meters, which makes the Seascoper interesting for demanding dives. The fluting of the unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, which is easy to grip, also helps. A signal triangle glows white in the dark. Together with the uncluttered dial and the size of 42 millimetres, the TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE provides its wearer with optimum readability.

Also worth mentioning is the winding crown, which TITONI has equipped with a special double sealing system.

Always a good choice: the stainless steel bracelet

Functionality or not: I prefer to wear the Seascoper 300 with its three-link stainless steel bracelet. Not only does it have a high-quality finish, it is also very comfortable to wear. If you don’t want to wear the watch with the rubber strap when diving, you can use the simple strap extension. This means that the Seascoper also fits over a wetsuit. 

My conclusion on the TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE

For me, the TITONI Seascoper 300 is and remains TITONI’s best watch – whether in the beautiful ICE BLUE or in one of the other colors. In my opinion, this is not the only area where the little Seascoper surpasses its bigger sister. Its price-performance ratio is probably unbeatable. You have to realize that this diver’s watch has a chronometer certificate, the seal of quality for luxury watches, but costs well under 2000 euros.

The timepiece is also impressive in other respects. Whether with its classic but unique design or the high-quality workmanship, there is nothing to complain about.

The new TITONI Seascoper 300 – ICE BLUE will be priced at 1,615.00 euros, whether with a black or dark blue bezel. I will offer my two photo watches in very good condition at 1,499.00 euros each.
