TW Steel has collaborated with racing icon Nigel Mansell for a new limited edition timepiece.
The TW Steel Nigel Mansell Edition timepiece embraces Mansell’s achievements, including his Formula 1 World Championship win in 1992, and the Dutch brand’s usual bold design.
The watch features anti-reflective sapphire crystals, a screwed crown and 10 ATM water-resistance.
Inside it houses the Ronda 5030.D Swiss made chronograph movement with a special Nigel Mansell ‘Red 5’ logo on the case back.
Based on the Swiss Volante model, it features a 48mm high-grade 316L brushed steel case with a shiny bezel, crown and pushers, located on a blue leather racing strap with heavy blue stitching.
The timepiece is inspired by Mansell’s famous red and blue colour scheme, and sports a sunray Blue-coloured dial with double printed white indexes and red accents.
Speaking about the Nigel Mansell Limited Edition, TW Steel CEO Jordy Cobelens said: “Racing is a big part of the TW Steel brand and one that we are constantly innovating with.
“For 2019 we have another special limited edition watch to announce, and I am excited to have Nigel Mansell as a new ambassador for the brand.
“Nigel is an iconic figure in motorsport and has achieved so much in his career.
“He is loved by racing fans worldwide, and his reputation for bravery and determination is a perfect match for the TW Steel brand.
“Competing and winning at the peak of motorsport in Formula One is a remarkable achievement, and we are excited to celebrate Nigel’s accolades with the new Nigel Mansell Limited Edition.”
Nigel Mansell added: “I have spent my career at the forefront of both innovation and technical excellence within the racing world, empowering me to deliver the very highest levels of performance.
“I am delighted to enter a new partnership with TW Steel and deliver this stunning Limited Edition watch. It is very much aligned to the same principles of bold innovation and technical precision”.
