Just bought new TW Steel watch

Love it so far. Anyone here have experience with this Brand? Seems like a pricey one as they average $400-$600 in price.

I've got a CEO Goliath in Rose Gold:



They're basically a cheaper version of the U-Boat watches. And compared with the price of a U-Boat, $400-$600 is cheap...

Yours is quite similar to a U-Boat Classico 45 (there are many face variations available):



They go for anywhere from $2-3k up to about $25k...

The cheaper make of U-Boat (Italo Fontana) is WELDER not TW Steel. this one is just a bit of a U-Boat rip-off - but yeah U-Boat did not invent the Canteen crown either...so thats alright.
TW Steel makes some nice watches, mostly inspired by known designs. Quality is quite good.
It's a nice pickup!

Yes. I know. Maybe I used the wrong word. I should have said "Copy" instead of "Version"...
