Valentino Rossi, one of the most successful motorcycle racers of all time, will get his own TW Steel watches. Dutch watch brand TW Steel has announced a brand new partnership with VR|46, the lifestyle brand created by MotoGP legend and current Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi. The first TW Steel Valentino Rossi watches will be on stock in November but you can already order the watches at WatchXL.
The official TW Steel VR|46 watch collection starts with three desirable new models. The TW Steel TW935 (45mm) and the TW Steel TW936 (48mm) are Pilot editions and are priced at €379 and €399 respectively. The TW Steel TW937 is a 48mm big Tech edition, priced at €799.
“Naturally we’re thrilled to partner with the VR|46 brand and start a very progressive relationship”, stated TW Steel CEO and co-owner, Jordy Cobelens. “The VR|46 brand is a further extension of Valentino Rossi’s values and his lifestyle choices. Having been exposed to that directly via our partnership with Movistar Yamaha MotoGP, we knew we wanted to work directly with VR|46 through the production of these new watch collections.
The new TW Steel VR|46 / Yamaha Factory Racing Pilot models are presented in a bold steel case with a PVD dark titanium coating. Each bezel enjoys a PVD dark titanium shine finish while inside both house a Miyota 6S20 big caliber movement with black date disk.
The VR|46 touches come with blue accents on the dial and yellow 46 in the second eye of the chrono. A dark grey silicon strap with raised VR|46 logo in black completes the look along with both the VR|46 and Yamaha Factory Racing logo on the case back. Both are 5 ATM water resistant.
The new Tech model features similar VR|46 design accents but starts with a steel case with a sandblasted PVD black coating. Further enhancements include steel pillars on the case side with yellow accents – designed to resemble shock absorbers, and a carbon fibre design black dial with raised steel indexes.
Also using the powerful Miyota 6S20 movement, the Tech edition sports a black silicon strap with dark grey line and a sandblasted PVD black coated clasp. It is 10 ATM water resistant.
