J. Hill, both watches are almost exactly the same except for the weight where the Ti is, of course, about 30% lighter but with a metal that's roughly 30% harder than steel. Maybe it's the lighter Ti weight that makes you feel the watch wears small.

One other small difference is that the Roman numerals on the Kampy are the 1, 2, 10 and 11 hours while on the Claifornia they are the 7, 8, 10 and 11 hours. To me the dull gray patina of the Ti is something cool and is unlike the usual stainless steel.

My Kampy has a few tiny dings and swirls as a result of some careless use but I think if it were in Ti,  wouldn't have this problem at all.

This is the vintage Kampfschwimmer with the large domed acrylic crystal. Can't give you a side by side but this is what the watch looks like on a 7.25 wrist.:cool:

Such a cool idea - combine the sandwich and Cali dials.  So this would make a "Calwich" dial, or a "Sandi", etc...??  ;)

 

Cheers
