TW Steel Reveals
Limited Edition Apex Canteen Style
Timepiece Designed to Celebrate
Brand’s 10th Anniversary
Created to represent the very pinnacle of TW Steel style, these Limited Edition Canteen timepieces (TWAC 10 – 45mm), in addition to being Swiss Made, house an ETA 7750 Valjoux Chronograph Automatic movement for added accuracy and sapphire crystal.
Bold design features include a steel case with hammered bezel and a black embossed dial, with month and date display. Each ‘Apex’ model sports an opulent real crocodile leather brown strap and is 10 ATM waterproof. The attention to detail carries through all the way to the stylish 10th anniversary watch box.
Offering outstanding luxury and perfectly reflecting TW Steel’s commitment to design excellence, the ‘Apex’ Canteen Style Limited Edition timepiece will retail with an RRP of €1799 / $1899.
Taking it a step further, TW Steel has also created a unique one-off presentation of a diamond ‘Apex’ Canteen Style execution. Designed purely to capture imaginations to the possibility of highly-stylized oversized timepieces, this diamond encrusted edition will serve as a centre-piece for the brand in its anniversary celebrations.
Sharing many of the same features as the Limited Edition ‘Apex’ Canteen editions, the unique diamond edition sparkles with 120 1.1mm and 267 1.5mm full cut VVS diamonds on both the bezel and the case totaling 4.669 carats. The embossed black dial also hosts 2 VVS diamonds to replace the famed two dots of the TW Steel logo. “
We really wanted to produce an anniversary watch that stood out but maintained our heritage at the same time,” shared TW Steel co-founder and Chief Design Officer Ton Cobelens. “Apex means peak, and we feel that our limited edition models represent the peak of our Canteen design, it’s the pinnacle of our collection and something very special to commemorate ten years of ‘Big Time’ with TW Steel. Our one-off diamond edition is simply the epitome of luxurious oversized design. It’s a statement piece and it represents that we have no boundaries when fusing the boldness of TW Steel with sheer opulence!”
