Tense utilizes 316 Stainless Steel in the design and the construction of our Hybrid Collection of watches. We chose this material because it creates a sturdy watch with a premium appearance.
316 Stainless Steel is a marine grade stainless steel because of it's resistance to corrosion, especially from chlorides like salt and other industrial solvents. This type of steel is often used in chemical processing apparatus, the pulp and paper industry and for food and beverage processing and dispensing. It's also used to build surgical tools and some medical implants.
Because of it's resistance to salt corrosion, 316 Stainless Steel is often used in the marine industry. It's also useful as an architectural building material on the coast.
