The New Titoni Seascoper 600 Retro

A new colour and retro-inspiration for Titoni’s powerful dive watch.

| By Xavier Markl | 2 min read |

Presented in 2020, the Titoni Seascoper 600 is a robust dive watch with solid credentials – including a water-resistance of 600m, a helium-relief valve and a COSC-certified proprietary automatic movement. Available in different variants, this Titoni is now offered in a new steel version with a handsome blue dial version featuring retro touches such as old-radium Super-LumiNova and copper-gold colour highlighting the dial, hands and rotating ceramic bezel.

Inspired by the archetypal divers of the late 1950s, the Titoni Seascoper 600 is a nicely executed, modern, highly capable diver. It boasts serious credentials with a 600m water-resistance and a helium relief valve. Its 42mm case features a 60-click unidirectional bezel fitted with a ceramic insert. The sapphire crystal features an anti-reflective coating on both sides to increase contrast and legibility.

Available in different variants – including bold editions in Carbotech – the model is now offered in a new steel and blue dial version with retro-styled details. The no-nonsense dial layout still combines three Arabic numerals and circular applied markers that bring a pleasant sense of depth and enhance legibility. These are now generously filled with old radium Super-LumiNova, just like the angular copper-gold hands. The blue ceramic insert of the rotating bezel matches the dial and features dive time in the same warm colour. The date is featured in white. While some might prefer a matching colour date wheel, it does provide great reading contrast.

Like previous editions of the Titoni Seascoper 600, the movement is the proprietary automatic calibre T10. This large 29.30mm movement was presented in 2019 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the brand. It runs at 4Hz and boasts 72 hours of power reserve when fully wound – an interesting feature when many watches in this category run on the ETA 2824 and its clones, which have a much lower autonomy. Its precision is also certified by the COSC and a stop seconds mechanism allows for precise setting. Flipping the watch over, the T10 and its skeletonized rotor are partially visible through an original exhibition caseback in the form of a porthole – with bolts and all.

The Titoni Seascoper 600 Retro comes on a nicely finished three-link steel bracelet. It feels solid and it is fitted with a security folding buckle. A fine adjustment system allows a comfortable fit on the wrist. A great package overall, the Seascoper 600 Retro retails for EUR 2,030 or USD 2,200. For more details, please visit

  1. Thank you, Xavier, for an excellent article and great closeup photos. I purchased the two-tone Seascoper 600, Ref 83600-SY-BK-256, a couple of years ago and have been extremely pleased with the overall solid construction and attention to detail. Titoni punches well above it’s weight class IMHO. Thank you again. Greg

  2. Nice review, and super photography. It appears to be a very thoughtfully designed watch.

    I have a Titoni Sportster (200m WR) that I purchased in 2002. It’s a beautiful, practical watch that’s still remarkably on-trend (stainless sport watch, integrated bracelet, modest case size), and still a solid performer. Although Titoni’s prices have increased a fair bit since then, I’d say that their watches still provide excellent value. If I were in the market they’d certainly be on my list of contenders.
