TW Steel’s story began when the young Jordy Cobelens became intrigued by the way his father Ton Cobelens earned his money; as a distributor for watch brand Raymond Weil. At the time, father Cobelens worked as a watch designer for leading airlines, and he also worked as a sales distributor for the Swatch Group. After a few years, he decided to start his watch brand. Like a dream team consisting of father and son, Ton and Jordy worked together on selling the very first TW Steel watches. Jordy sold the watches to his friends and Ton to the parents of those friends.
To work on his entrepreneur skills, Jordy spent a year in Germany. In 2005 the end product the TW Steel (The Watch in Steel) idea was born: large oversized watches that look like they cost a fortune, with sizes starting at 37 mm up to 50 mm. It was a huge success.
Time doesn’t rest, and neither does TW Steel. In August 2015 the Dutch watch brand was celebrating its 10th anniversary. In this relatively short period TW Steel managed to become the ‘biggest in oversized watches’, and even celebrities like Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland and Ciara and motorsport legends are regularly seen with a TW Steel watch on their wrist.
TW Steel offers an intelligent mix of design, innovation and quality. The watches have a large, eye-catching design which allows you to make a statement. There’s an art to being bold with style; it takes confidence. You radiate power and ambition, and your TW Steel watch underlines this.
