The versatile watches every gentleman should add to his collection

We take a look at the watches that are built for both work and adventure

We’ve all come to learn that life must be a careful balance of work and play. Every gentleman must be the go-getter, who launches himself into the rat-race every morning so that he can make all the right moves towards a successful career. But every man must also be somewhat of a maverick; a person who, even if its only momentarily, abandons all rules to live on the edge and find ways to truly enjoy himself whilst he’s away from the daily grind.

In many ways our clothing already caters to life’s double sided nature; we all own a mix of formal attire for the average day in the office, and more outgoing pieces that we sport when we’re off duty.

But there’s no reason why a man’s watch shouldn’t also reflect this duality, a key item of his wardrobe and often one of his most personal possessions. TW Steel’s new timepiece collections offer the perfect solution, catering to businessmen and mavericks alike.

The Adesso

The Adesso collection was based off of the hard-working city gent, a man who completes a 9-5 shift but then enjoys the finer things in life as a reward for his professional efforts.

Accordingly, the watches have been designed with utter sophistication, a reincarnation of the brand’s classic Canteen model but with a contemporary twist. Boasting a stunning chronograph underneath sapphire coated crystal, and your choice of a luxe leather or smart steel wrist strap, this is the definition of a sharp yet stylish watch.

The Maverick

In bright contrast, the Maverick line of watches by the Dutch brand attempts to deliver a totally fresh take on wrist accessories.

Influenced by the already groundbreaking Son of Time design, the Maverick range has been made for the bold gentleman who likes to take alternative, exciting paths. It comes in 3 equally covetable iterations; a super-clean 3 hand model, a chrono, and an impressive automatic, each available with a vintage-inspired leather strap that has eye-catching stitch detail.
