I have a titanium M6 and after several years of use it shows a/some wear and 
b/there is brass underneath that titanium coating. It is a nice enough 
looking camera, but I prefer my M's to be black! The common fallacy is to 
believe that the M6 Titanium is what it purports to be, in fact it is a brass 
top-plate and baseplate which is titanium nitride coated. The ostrich-leather 
does not appeal to me, looks like it had suffered some kind of "social 
disease", the Leica Herpes Simplex! One of the drawbacks with this model is 
that the shutterspeed dial is the same colour, kind of yellowish with white 
lettering. virtually impossible to read in low light and totally impossible 
to read in bright sunlight!
