Titanium is a much poorer conductor of heat compared to steel and should therefore feel noticeably cooler after being in contact with your skin for some time. An advantage in watches imo especially when wearing in hot conditions.yup.
both are metal and should dissipitate heat at about the same rate.. hmm..
Makes sense to me. Might have to experiment a little now however.Titanium is a much poorer conductor of heat compared to steel and should therefore feel noticeably cooler after being in contact with your skin for some time. An advantage in watches imo especially when wearing in hot conditions.
Funnily though, a SS watch will often feel colder intially as it draws heat quickly from your skin immediately after putting it on giving a cold sensation.
I actually think that the resin pieces would tend to keep the SS back from touching skin and as resin is a very poor conductor of heat that should actually help to keep the watch cool.The Mudman has the resin on the back. Resin/plastic is an insulator, metal is a conductor. Based on that, I would expect the Mudman to be warmer, as it will dissipate less heat.
Wrap your arm in tin foil, vs. wrap it in plastic wrap. The plastic will likely feel warmer as it does not dissipate the heat. The foil will disipate the heat, so will seem cooler.
When I first posted I forgot the Mudman had the resin on the back.
nope, the button is tough as hell.Hey Boys,
my muddie's light is so tough to activate i got to press it so hard and not only that, sometimes i press so hard and no light comes up. Is it something wrong with the button?
good to know. just an idea !!!Mitch: well if it is a poor conductor of heat. it will conduct the heat away slower hence more heat will be generated right?
Mansrow: well if i were to wear it tight, i use the 5th slot from the top. But now i m using the 6th. Thanks guys for the help
