The weight thing is always interesting to me.* People want weight to the watch - they might think "cheap" if they pick up a much lighter titanium when they're used the shiny steel above ?

Melt temp is similar to steel. That has no effect on price. The need to keep the liquid titanium isolated from air/water (liquid Ti will "steal" the oxygen atom from a water molecule, resulting in a steam explosion followed by a hydrogen explosion) adds a little to the price - more by restricting supply than by actual cost involved.Melt temp is higher than SS so it's more
difficult to cast.
