Mick Doohan takes time out from TT to promote new TW Steel watch.
Wilkins Jewellers on the Isle of Man had a special visit from Australian motorcycle racing legend Mick Doohan to promote the driver’s new TW Steel range of watches.
Doohan was visiting the Isle of Man as part of the TT Racing series but paid a visit to the retailer to promote his latest product.
The TW Steel Mick Doohan Special Edition watch has been based on the brand’s TECH collection and Doohan has even had a hand in designing it.
The watch features a steel sandblasted matt case with PVD dark titanium plating and off-set with shiny steel screws on the bezel and a black silicon strap. The stylish grey dial sports Doohan’s name and the tachymeter numbers and second hand have been decorated in a bold red.
The form of the case pillars on the Doohan watch are a first for the brand as they connect the bezel to the caseback in homage to the design of motorcycle shock absorbers.
Speaking of the tie-up with TW Steel, Doohan said: “This is a great project for me to be involved in and a great brand to represent. I’ve followed TW Steel with interest due to their involvement in motorsport and I obviously jumped at the chance to work with them on a Special Edition when the opportunity presented itself. I loved the fact they were responsive to my comments on the design and I’m proud to put my name on a watch that is visually strong, well built and ultimately affordable.”
