TW Steel has released a spectacular new limited edition watch. Made especially for the 24-hour race of Dubai, the TW696 24H Dubai 2013 has been limited to only 150 copies, of which a part has been distributed amongst the contestants in Dubai. That’s how a sponsor of a racing event does it. The remainders are some very unique TW Steel watches of which there are only 50 copies available in the Netherlands.
The TW Steel TW696 is a real eye catcher. Not only because of the use of an orange silicon wrist strap in combination with orange numbers on the dial, but also because of the familiar sturdy appearance. Within the 48 mm large stainless steel case of the TW696 is a Citizen Miyota clockwork. The watch has a chronograph, date display and a tachymeter.
All ingredients that have made the TW Steel watch special, are in the TW696. Fun details are the blue arm of the chronograph and the blue sweep hand, that give the watch a little extra flavour. Isn’t there anything that is related to the 24-hour race of Dubai? Surely there is. The tachymeter subtly starts with ‘24H Dubai’ and the logo is prominently visible on the back of the watch. But the most noticeable mention of the Dubai race is the logo on the wrist strap. It really makes the TW696 stand out.
The TW Steel TW696 24H Dubai 2013 limited edition is only available online for 349 euros. Order it now at WatchXL.
