Petros, before I moved on to the Alaska II case, I wanted to know more about titanium. The fact that no one had used titanium before the Alaska I is a good reason. There was simply not enough of it.
One theory is that Rolex Datejust Replica Watches got the titanium it needed from Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, which gathered an enormous amount of material to build the SR-71 Blackbird. Petros responded to this by saying, "The Rolex Datejust Replica Watches Museum continues its research into the Alaska Projects and is looking at all aspects.Rolex Datejust Replica Watches We do not have all of the details yet regarding the delivery of titanium for the Alaska prototypes."
The list of countries which produced titanium and could export it at that time was very small, so it wasn't easy to find the metal. The final supplier is known, but the research project has not yet been completed. It would be premature to reveal this information, since we don't want to spoil any fun that watch collectors and lovers will have when the updated research is published.
The Alaska II Prototype, 1972
1972 -- The Alaska II Prototype returned to the Speedmaster case,Rolex Explorer Replica and introduced a radial dial.
The second generation watches made as part of Alaska Project retain the red aluminum heat-shield, the Zinc Oxide coated dials, and the 861 caliber, but, as Petros mentioned, they adopt the classic 42mm twisted-lug case of Speedmaster. This version is matte, with no shiny surfaces, thanks to micro-bead-sandblasting.
The dial of the Alaska II Prototype features the Speedmaster logo, but for the first ever we have what is known as a radial dial. Radial dials are dials with scales that have a radial alignment.
