These watches are the fruit of the partnership between TW Steel and the Formula 1 outfit. In fact, every member of the team – from the mechanics right to the team boss himself – wears one during a race weekend.
The TW Steel Lotus F1 Team Collection is new, which is inline with the rebranding of the Lotus F1 Team. Two watch lines have adopted the team’s livery: Pilot and CEO Tech.
There are two to choose from in the Pilot line, the TW667 is 45 mm in diameter and TW 678 is 48 mm in diametre. Black dial and white numbering make this watch stand out more.
Both chronographs are finished in a sleek matt sandblasted PVD black-coated case; the second hand and chronograph details are accented in gold. You can find the Lotus F1 Team logo on the case back.
The CEO Tech also comes in two sizes, the TW684 (44 mm) and TW685 (48 mm). Its chronograph movements are accurate to 1/20th of a second and sport AA-grade black PVD coated cases off-set by AA-grade gold plated accents in the crown, pushers, second hand and bezel screws.
Notably, the CEO Tech feature real Sapphire crystal, which is rare to find it on a watch this size. Like the Pilot, you can find the team’s logo on the case back.
