TW Steel, the Dutch watch brand ‘Big in Oversized Watches’, launches its latest TECH executions at BASELWORLD 2010 . On display for the first time, the collection consists of seven new models, available in either 45mm or 48mm editions, with the styling founded on the popularity of the now sold-out limited edition TW Steel A1GP TECH watches.
Responding to consumer demand to build on that design platform, the seven new TECH models comprise a stylish blend of rugged looks with a high-end finish – all watches, of course, featuring top grade stainless steel and a unique construction that connects the bezel to the case back by using pillars and engine screws.
Notable stand-outs include the TW128 (45mm) and TW129 (48mm), which take their inspiration from TW Steel’s successful Canteen-Style ‘Cool Black’ editions, featuring a greyer dial and in keeping with the ‘dark’ trend prevalent in current consumer taste.
In addition, the TW126 (45mm) and TW127 (48mm) both feature a sleek black dial offset against a stainless steel case and steel bracelet and folded clasp.
The TW Steel 2010 TECH models all sport a chronograph function with an OS25 movement, accurate to 1/20th of a second. All watches feature soft rubber straps with an anti-dust protection layer, with the exception of the aforementioned TW126 and TW127 with the steel bracelet.
All the crystals feature a sapphire layer. The TW130 / TW131 / TW132 / TW133 editions utilize AA-grade rose gold plating on the cases while the TW128 and TW129 feature AA-grade PVD black plating for a distinguished finish. Finally all new TECH watches are waterproof to a depth of 100 metres.
