T W Steel Watches
These Dutch designed watched are the very definition of a statement watch. TW Steel (which means “The Watch in Steel”) take an unashamedly bold stance in their watchmaking, focussing on big, strong designs.
They’ve been making watches since 2005 and have an air of confidence about their designs, infusing them all with a trademark style and character.
And if there’s one component that truly defines TW Steel, it’s their oversized dials, with most measuring in at 45-50mm.
Oversized dials have become a very popular option over the last few years, particularly for men, and they work well in smart, professional environment but also suit more casual occasions.
Another instantly recognisable aspect of a TW Steel is their simple, modern, two dot logo.
The company was set up in the Netherlands just over ten years ago by the father and son pair of Ton and Jordy Cobelens and initially comprised of just four models.
Ton has a strong background in watch designing, having designed watches for Dutch airlines such as KLM and Martinair in the 80s.
They began trading in the UK in 2007 and are now one of the most established luxury brands in the country.
They’ve also won their fair share of celebrity backers, with former Formula One driver David Coulthard and singer Kelly Rowland working with them on designs and have partnerships with both the Renault and Lotus Formula One teams.
Their first and most enduring design is the Canteen collection. This bold and distinctive watch is defined by a signature crown cap attached with a hook and has now spawned a number of different variations such as the Canteen Leather and Canteen Bracelet.
For a more formal take on the Canteen design check out their CEO (Collection ExtraOrdinary) range.
Another popular collection is the Slim Line range. We love this collection for its minimalist approach which strips everything back for an elegant, sophisticated look while retaining a unique edge, perfect is you don’t like the oversized nature of TW’s statement watches.
Our TW Steel watches are mainly available in a muted colour palette, heavy on greys blacks and browns and all with that signature oversized dial.
So if you’re after a big, bold watch to reflect your personality, look no further than our excellent collection of TW Steel statement watches here at Wave Jewellery.
