  • TW Steel Limited Tom Coronel Edition: TCR racing watch

    TW Steel SVS304 Swiss Volante watchThe TW Steel Coronel SVS304 is a striking red watch from the TW Steel Swiss Volante collection. Striking, because it is certainly not a watch that goes unnoticed and it is very red! This watch was specially designed for Tom Coronel on the occasion of his participation in the TCR, the world touring car championships. In this blog we will take a close look at the SVS304 for you.

     

    The appearance

    Looking at the product photos you might not notice it, but the case of the SVS304 has an anthracite to dark gray color. Where many TW Steel watches have a shiny case, the watch case of this Coronel watch is mat. The lunette however is not mat at all: it is as brilliant as the morning star on a summer morning. It's color is best described as deep black wit a really nice contrast considered with the bright red elements that you'll find on the dial and watch strap of the SVS304.

    Special watch case

    A striking feature of this watch is the watch lid, the back of the TW Steel SVS304. The Honda Tricorp Honda TCR racing car from Tom Coronel adorns this. Of course you will also find a unique serial number here because this watch is a Limited Edition. There are therefore only 150 made.

     

    About the specs of this Swiss Volante men's watch

    The SVS304 is ecquiped with a Swiss Ronda Cal. 5030.D movement. Most quartz watches might have a small deviation, the deviation of this Ronda timepiece is minimal: no more than -10 / + 20 seconds per month. Energy source of the Ronda is a type 395 (diameter 9.5 mm x 2.6 mm / SR 927 SW) button cell battery. Excellent performance.

    The SVS304 is also a chronograph that you can use for measuring whatever you want. This watch has of course a date display and you will find a tachymeter around the dial. With a case diameter of 48 mm, the size is pretty reasonable. The thickness of the case is also considerable: we measure 13 mm. Pretty sturdy!

    Sapphire glas

    Sapphire glass should not be missing with a watch in this price range. Sapphire is a lot harder than ordinary mineral glass, it protects better against scratches and damage. As far as we are concerned, a watch with sapphire glass is always preferred. And the SVS304 does have sapphire glass.

    Beautiful, this watch, but if the first raindrop is already upsetting it then it doesn't help you much. Luckely this won't happen when wearing the SVS304: it is water proof up to 100 meters.  Basically this means you can go for a swim with this watch and you can even take it out there on your holiday snorkeling adventures! The crown is screwed and in this way better protected against water. The SVS304 is however not suitable for professional divers. A diving watch will be a better option for these kind of actions.

     

    What about TCR? What does it mean?

    TCR means 'Touring Car Championship'. A touring car championship in which Dutch touring car rally driver Tom Coronel participated. It has been transferred to the WTCR since 2018 (Tom also participates, and that also resulted in beautiful watches).

  • Watch lost? Check your dog!

    a fat dogIf you will loose your watch in the future and there is a dog in your house… First check your dog! The British bar owner Terry Morgan must have thought the same. His favorit watch was lost and he couldn’t find it anywhere. Till the moment he heard the alarm of his watch somewhere under his dog…

    When the man pushed the dog away the watch wasn’t under the dog. There was only one possibility left. Charlie eat it. But a emergency surgery costs £1000. Quite expensive. The look at the needle of the syringe for the anesthetic was enough for Charlie. The dog started to howl en coughed till the watch came out of his mouth.

    Sounds like a good end. Quite a good end. Terry Morgan is very happy that he got his watch back. But according to The Mirror he had to pay £200 for the X-rays. No problem for Morgan. It seems that he and the dog are still friends.

    We knew already the Tauchmeister watches with leather, rubber and stainless steel straps. Now Tauchmeister presented a few watches with special Milanese straps. A watch strap that dates back to 19th century but is very trendy at moment.

    The Milanese straps feature very small interlinking pieces of metal. This creates a smooth steel strap. The technik was used very often in the 19th century. The Milanese straps are named after the Italian city of Milan, where the first Milanese straps were made. Nowadays more and more famous watch brands start to use Milanese straps. The straps fit both modern and retro watches.

    At the moment Tauchmeister has a few watches with a Milanese strap like the Tauchmeister T0228MIL and the Tauchmeister T0201MIL. The Reboses RS002MIL contains also a Milanese strap. The straps are easy to customize yourself.

  • The most expensive watch in the world: a good investment

    Do you have 12 million Euros on a forgotten bank account? Maybe this is the moment to check your accounts. On 14 November the most expensive watch in the world -the Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication- will be brought to the hammer at Sotheby's in Geneva. We’ve got a small hint: it seems to be a good investment.

    Most expensive watch in the world: the Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication Most expensive watch in the world: the Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication

    The Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication. It sounds good. Back in 1925 banker Henry Graves from New York asked Patek Phillipe to create a extraordinary watch. Nowadays most of us are already satisfied with a TW Steel watch or a Welder watch. But this American banker only wanted the most complicated watch in the world. Well, Henry Graves question was the start of a great watch history.

    The Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication became the most complicated watch ever made. Today it’s the most expensive watch in the world. After three years of research and five years of production the watch was finished in 1933. It’s made of 18-carat gold, shows the time, has a perpetual calendar, shows the sunrise and sunset in New York and provides information about the stars above ‘the Big Apple’. Moreover the watch has 21 other functions.

    Meanwhile, the Patek Philippe is not the most complicated watch in the world anymore. Thanks to the computer it is possible to built more complicated watches then the 80 year old Patek Philippe Henry Graves Supercomplication. But it took 59 years to built a more complicated watch! It’s a pity… But the Henry Graves Supercomplication is still the most expensive watch in the world. 15 years ago a new owner payd 8 million Euros for this golden watch. The future new owner has to pay at least 12 million Euros. That means that the watch became in the past 15 years every year 267.000 Euros more expensive! A very interesting investment…
