This week, TW Steel, famous for their oversized watches, has launched the latest addition to their CEO Tech collection, the David Coulthard Special Edition, to mark the 20th anniversary of the Scottish Grand Prix star’s debut in Formula One.
Available in two sizes, CE4019 (44mm – £575 / €639 / $899 US) and CE4020 (48mm – £595 / €679 / $949 US) these stunning watches are the third editions representing the collaboration between Coulthard and TW Steel. They follow the success of the first models introduced to the CEO Tech range in 2011, CE4001 (44mm) and CE4002 (48mm) followed by 2012’s CEO Diver David Coulthard Swiss Automatic Limited Edition (CE5005).
The 2014 CEO Tech David Coulthard editions feature a stainless steel brushed case, complimented by a sandblasted PVD black coated bezel with steel screws. The case houses the powerful, state-of-the-art Miyota 6S20 chronograph movement while David’s name features on the case back.
With an acknowledgement to David’s famed motorsport heritage, including 13 Grand Prix victories, these pieces sport a sleek, masculine carbon fiber design on the dial with the visually distinctive larger chrono eyes furthering its appeal. Complete with sapphire crystal and 10 ATM water resistant, a black silicon strap with brushed steel clasp finishes the bold look of Coulthard’s latest executions.
“David (Coulthard) continues to be an exemplary brand ambassador for TW Steel,” stated TW Steel CEO, Jordy Cobelens. “His popularity is truly global and we wanted to mark the 20th anniversary year of his Grand Prix debut with something special. The new CEO Tech edition is a tribute to his stellar career and a celebration of our own relationship, which started with David back in 2010. We couldn’t ask to work with a more engaging ambassador and I know these models will reflect his worldwide appeal.”
“I certainly consider it a privilege to once again have another timepiece from TW Steel with my name on it,” remarked David Coulthard, now an F1 commentator for the BBC. “Honestly I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since my first Grand Prix but given we’re celebrating time then it’s only fitting to do that with a watch. I’m continually amazed at the creativity of TW Steel and how well they design a piece around a concept. I think my new CEO Tech is testament to the brand’s bold look and statement making style!”
