According to the legend, Romulus and Remus were the sons of Rhea Silvia, the daughter of King Numitor of Alba Longa. Alba Longa was a mythical city located in the Alban Hills southeast of what would become Rome.
The ancient Romans preferred not to use the designation ‘IV’ because those were the initials of the name of the Roman supreme god IVPITER. Titanio is a modern Italian watch brand and, out of respect, will not use the ‘IV’ when there are Roman numerals on a watch face. Titanio watch faces are clearly legible and, if they have chronos, they indicate the hours, minutes and seconds.
Emperor Augustus had an obelisk brought over from Egypt. On the obelisk, a sphere was placed, whose shadow fell on a Roman square where bronze markings were installed in the paving, from which the time could be read. The “Horologium” is probably the largest sundial ever built. The movements of Titanio watches are also large and at least as reliable and accurate.
A popular piece of jewellery among wealthy Roman men was the signet ring. This piece of jewellery was used to seal letters. Roman bracelets were characterized in particular by the decoration of stones and glass. This is why Titanio pays a lot of attention to the design and quality of the watch strap.
The Titanio Imperiale is the emperor of the Titanio collection. Available in titanium grey with Italian accent colours and (Italian) azure blue, the model is the first in line with powerful successors.
