As requested, please find underneath a first look into the
very
extended world of Stainless Steel alloys. I am sure that
our
metalurgists shall be pleased to give us all a lot more
information as
which alloys befit the watch industry (3l3 + 316 with many
variations):

For a really useful technological advance, how about an
alloy withOUT nickel to serve the not inconsiderable number
of people with nickel allergy?

This is exactly what the watch industry is aiming at: nickelless

Titanium would be the best everywhere. Unfortunately the Japanese,
especially Citizen, have lowered the image of the metal too much.
