Marcus Aurelius reigned as Roman emperor from 161 to 180 CE and is best known as the last of the Five Good Emperors of Rome. He has long been respected as embodying the Platonic concept of the Philosopher King as articulated in Plato’s Republic: “A ruler who does not seek power for his own sake but to help his people.” He lived his philosophy in both his private and public life in that he consistently placed the needs of the people before his own desires or visions of glory and worked for the common good. He successfully conducted campaigns in Germania and managed the affairs of the empire efficiently.
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’. 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.
Marcus Aurelius (121 CE) was the last of the “five good emperors” and also a philosopher. He was a model of justice and humanity. The Titanio Aurelius is an impressive and simple model that exudes tranquillity.
The Colosseum was chosen as one of the new seven wonders of the world in 2007. A magical place that symbolizes the old and the new city of Rome. Not only are Titanio watches designed with passion and dedication; that also applies to the stylish tin mini Colosseum in which Titanio watches are packaged.
