      A great watch- shame I can't wear it with my best long sleeve shirts!

      TW Steel Canteen TW11 - Great but not suitable for long sleeve shirts!

      When my little brother bought an expensive Swiss watch for his 21st birthday I felt just a little bit jealous. I've always had a thing for nice things and he got to that one before I'd even thought about it! It also made me a little bit obsessed with watches for a while and my T W Steel was my first big purchase as a result.
      I have to admit that I do like to make sure I look good and am happy to make one relatively big purchase instead of a number of smaller ones. Friends and family think I spend a fortune in comparison to them however realistically I feel it's not the case.
      After a couple of months of researching watches I fell in love with the oversized look of TW Steel watches and thanks to a special offer voucher a friend gave for H Samuel I also had an extra £100 towards a purchase of over £250 which was a nice bonus and meant my budget stretched a little further.
      Generally you don't think of a Dutch company for a watch!
      The TW11 is a mens sports watch with
      * 50 mm diameter case with a 14 mm depth
      * Quarz Battery Movement
      * Black round dial with white numbering and luminous hands
      * Stainless steel bezel with a tachymetre scale and screw in crown
      * Thick chunky black strap with red contrast stitching
      * Mineral Crystal glass
      * 1/10th second chronograph feature
      * Water resistant to 100 m
      * 2 year warranty
      The watch itself feels heavy due to it's great bulk however on your wrist it does not feel heavy at all. A 50 mm dial is on the large size however you never have the problem seeing what the time is. I think someone 20 metres away the other side of a restaurant could tell the time from this watch too! I have fairly narrow slim wrists and basically the 50 mm dial is the width of my wrist- the watch is that big!
      After 2 years of regular use the glass is still scratch free and I have not had to have a replacement battery yet!
      Due to the style and styling this watch is very much a character statement. You have to have a strong personality to wear this watch due to it's brashness owing to it's size. I love it! I'm not usually someone for brash statement clothing however this watch is my way of being that little bit more eccentric and it gets comments from people wherever I go.
      The downside of it's size is I cannot really wear it with a long sleeve shirt unless the cuff is undone. I know you can now get a shirt which has a cut out section as part of the cuff for watches thanks I believe to Armani as one of their design team developed an allergy to his watch strap. The shirt works like a double cuff with a layer of fabric on the inside between watch and wearer.
      A great watch- shame I can't wear it with my best long sleeve shirts!
