The men of TW Steel

MANILA, Philippines - Who says you need to choose between a slim or an oversize watch? TW Steel gives wearers the best of both worlds, and introduces the newest addition to its roster of bold and elegant timepieces, the TW Steel Slim collection

Renowned Dutch brand TW Steel is constantly innovating and carving a niche for itself in the watchmaking industry. Known for being a giant in the oversize watch market, TW Steel raises the bar by creating a new concept — a dressier, slicker oversize watch that bodes well with crisp white shirts and perfectly tailored suits.

“I think it was important for us, as a brand, to be able to offer a collection of models that are more directly suited for formal, business or dress attire,” stated TW Steel’s chief design officer Ton Cobelens. “In order to do that, a slim watch was the only option as functionality becomes a priority for the wearer, in particular the need to have a timepiece that fits well on the wrist and equally under a shirt.”

All models in the Slim Line collection are embellished with sapphire crystals, while additional highlights of the new range include the use of sunray dials, with matching hands and numbers, all with a shine finish in keeping with the cases. Championing both form and function, each model is also 5 ATM water resistant.

In this new collection, TW Steel proves that a slim and oversize watch is not an oxymoron as a fashion statement. It eloquently challenges what a regular watch should be, and should look like. Why just be an oversize watch when you can also couple it with a slim strap, and take on a more formal look?

With this in mind, the Slim Line collection presents its “#WhyNotBoth” theme, a campaign that highlights three personalities in the social scene who have successfully balanced a multifaceted life.

Nico Bolzico, a successful and well-traveled economist, also doubles as a polo aficionado when he’s not dressed in his bespoke suits. Sebastian Ripoll, an accomplished strength and conditioning coach, also works as a producer for a documentary series with ABS-CBN called Team U. James Younghusband, a celebrated football player and right midfielder for the Philippine Azkals, also spearheads the Younghusband Football Academy.

Bolzico, Ripoll and Younghusband lead very vibrant lives, and are each committed to not only living out their dreams, but also making sure that they share those with others as well. They embody the qualities that the Slim Line collection espouses: that there is no either or, but simply, a delicate balancing act.

TW Steel is available at the following TW Steel boutiques (The Podium, Marquee Mall, Shangri-La Plaza, SM Mega Fashion Hall, SM Aura Premier, Century City Mall, SM City North EDSA), Lucerne, Chronos, Swissgear, WristPod, Adora, and Le Temps.
