Valentino Rossi and his teammate Jorge Lorenzo are in our hometown Assen, Holland. The two MotoGP riders will try to beat Marc Marquez this weekend at the Dutch TT Assen. For the real Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and Yamaha Factory Racing Team fans we’ve got the amazing TW Steel Yamaha Factory Racing watches.
The Yamaha watches are available in two models: CEO Tech (TW924 and TW925) and Pilot (TW926 and TW927). The CEO Tech watches do have a big bold steel case. In the bezel are special screws, which look on the side of the watch like shock absorbers.
The Pilot watches are a little thinner and do have a more classic appearance. Both models dispose of a Miyota quartz movement with chronograph and date function. The Yamaha YZR-M1 logo, the logo of the Yamaha MotoGP bikes, is situated at the dial of the watch. A blue silicon strap with Yamaha logo makes the TW Steel watches complete.

TW Steel watches has revved up its 'Big in Oversized Watches' family with the introduction of the four-strong Yamaha Factory Racing collection. Boasting two Tech and two Pilot executions, these timepieces perfectly showcase TW Steel's famed design accents while at the same time they infuse the very brand DNA and the racing pedigree of Yamaha Factory Racing and its current YZR-M1 bike into each piece.
Having first announced its new role as an 'Official Sponsor' of Yamaha Factory Racing – one of the leading factory teams in the MotoGP championship, back in May, Saturday's watch unveiling, hosted at the San Marino MotoGP round, heralds the next step in the relationship. It is a move which will undoubtedly appeal to watch lovers and fans of both the team and its riders, reigning World Champion, Spain's Jorge Lorenzo (#99), and Italian legend and multiple MotoGP™ World Champion, Valentino Rossi (#46).
TW924 (45mm) and TW925 (48mm), the two Tech editions, kick start the Yamaha Factory Racing collection with a sporty appearance that includes a steel case with PVD yellow gold plated pillars, shaped to resemble shock absorbers, on the side of the case with a thin red line. The screws mounted on top of the bezel are PVD dark titanium plated, as is the mid piece of the crown and the pushbutton holders.
Powered by a Miyota 6S20 movement, a state-of-the art big caliber movement four times more powerful than other chronos, these models feature a race-orientated dial with the chrono eyes based on the dashboard from the team's race bikes. They sit on a sleek black carbon fiber dial with white indexes along with a striking red second hand.
The YZR-M1 logo, the name of Yamaha's MotoGP racing bike, sits below the TW Steel logo while on the case back, the Yamaha Factory Racing logo is engraved for added appeal. With a sapphire layer and a blue silicon strap with a white Yamaha Factory Racing logo double-injected for a more prominent effect, the result being a raised profile for the logo, both of these Tech models are 10ATM water resistant.
Also using the Miyota 6S20 movement, the Pilot executions feature a steel case with PVD yellow gold plated pushers and a hardened mineral crystal. The other design effects emulate the Tech editions with the same dial design, red second hand and logo incorporation on the front and back. Completed with a blue silicon strap with a white Yamaha Factory Racing logo double-injected for a more prominent effect, both of these Pilot models are 5ATM water resistant.
All models are presented in a stylish co-branded TW Steel / Yamaha Factory Racing box. "I had promised that this collection would represent the very best of both our brands and I'm proud that we've delivered on that statement," stated Jordy Cobelens, CEO and co-owner of TW Steel. "Yamaha's heritage, success and global outreach were hugely important in considering the design of these models. They represent excellence along with other shared attributes such as passion, performance and attention to detail.
The TW Steel Yamaha Factory Racing watches are available from 329 Euros. We expect to receive them at the end of October.
