History of the TW Steel Brand
Another characteristic of the watches of TW Steel is the use of steel. TW Steel is the name is for ‘The Watch in Steel’ and this indicates clearly what the brand stands for. The cabinets are made of high quality steel, beautifully finished and some models are equipped with complete PVD or rose gold plating. And then there is the distinctive design of the watches, which all stand by their tough appearance. A recurring element in the collection is the crown cap in Canteen style and the leather straps with the two dots. The crown cap is attached to the cabinet by means of a hook. In this way the crown is better protected and is the watch better water resistant. This American invention, which dates from the Second World War, is now unnecessary for today’s watches. But this design element gives the TW Steel watches a unique look.
