So today I thought I’d introduce you to a wicked new brand I have been involved with recently. The very cool folks over at TW Steel dropped a little gift in my PO BOX this last week for me to check out, and I loved it so much I thought I’d share it with you lot.
So if you haven't heard of TW Steel before here’s a quick bit of background - they are a Dutch watchmaker founded in 2005 and are renowned for their chunky industrial style watches. They very kindly sent me over a watch of my very own which I have been wearing for a couple of days and love.
I personally think a watch is so important for your style, watches finish off an outfit really well and if your collection is as huge as mine, you can chuck on a different one to match the look you’re trying to achieve. The Canteen ‘CS1’ watch that TW Steel sent me is a chunky, large-faced watch with a thigh leather strap - it feels like it’s got some real substance to it, after all it has an impressive 100m water resistance!
The look is super vintage and I think it would look great with a smart slim fit suit, maybe even a dinner suit if you’ve got a posh event coming up! This might sound weird but I appreciate the fact the ‘tick’ is pretty quiet - I hate those watches that you put on your bedside table and then have to lay awake all night and hear ticking for all eternity.
The dial is hidden under the large case, this spins off on its hinge and reveals the dial. Now, I don't know if this serves a purpose or if it’s just for show but I think it might seal it and possibly help the water resistance.
This watch is a must-have if you’re looking for a nice smart watch - you can get it straight from the guys over at TW Steel for £199 by clicking here!
