TW Steel Watches a relative newcomer in Dutch produced luxury items is certainly creating quite a stir in the world of horology. Founded in 2005 by father-and-son team Ton Cobelens and Jordy Cobelens, TW Steel Watches is one of the fastest growing watch brands in the world today.
With experience in the watch industry as a distributor for Raymond Weil and Maurice Lacorix timepieces, as well as producer of private label watches for KLM and Martinair airlines and the head of an advertising agency creating promotions for the Swatch Watch group, Ton Cobelens set out in 2005 with his son Jordy to create bold, oversized watches that enrich people’s lives.
