After returning a Skagen which caused a red round rash requiring cortisone treatment, I was desperate for a stainless alternative. Most stainless contains nickel, my allergen. I found Boccia Titanium and was skeptical but I liked the modern clean styles. And the prices are so reasonable. After 2 weeks, I LOVE my new watch. The combination of polished and matte titanium along with the crystal markers is beautiful. No rash! I wear it every day, all day. It works equally for casual and dress--though I'm now deciding on my next Boccia. THANK YOU for this brand.
