Why was Superman dubbed the Man of Steel, and not, say iron or titanium? Probably for any number of reasons, but mostly because of all the metals, steel sounds better, stonger, more foundational. When it comes to timepieces, that sturdiness is important — and happens to look damn good, too. Steel is perfect for an everyday watch, ready to tackle anything. Kind of like Superman.
