    New TWCO, again! This watch will be...

    Special made!

    I was one of the first TWCO owners, I had serialnr. 8.
    I think I'm the first person who sold his TWCO again, not because TWCO is a nightmare..because I ordered a new TWCO, special made!

    The new TWCO, I like it..there is 1 thing I would have changed if possible and that is the beadblast look of the watch.

    A few weeks ago Robbert asked me if I was still happy with TWCO, yes..but told him I like a brushed look even more..well..ahum..

    Last week Robbert (owner TWCO) called me that he is prepared to make 1 TWCO SRD in brushed steel!!
    If I'm interested...YESSSS!!!

    That's the reason I've sold my TWCO.
    Ow and selling my TWCO: it was sold within 15 minutes (15?? Yes 15 minutes!) on the internet, this watch is quite popular :D

    My new and unique TWCO SRD Brushed steel (serialnr. SRD Brush or 0000, I don't know that) will be coming in april.
    If my new watch is arrived I will make some pics with my former TWCO and my new TWCO, beadblasted versus brushed!


    @TWCO: many thanks for the possibility to make a brushed steel TWCO

    @Wheels:
    well, the beadblasted look wasn't a big problem..I'm very happy with the looks of the normal TWCO.
    If I could change a thing, then I would take the brushed look..and now it's possible :)

    There will be only one brushed steel TWCO SRD, if this looks good on the TWCO maybe in the future there will be more brushed TWCO's!

    Robbert (owner of TWCO) doesn't like the brushed look, that's why he does only beadblasted watches.
    Maybe this will change his mind ;)

    To each their own I think mate. I don't mind the bead lasted look. Once the watch scratches up though its going to be hard to replicate the finish to restore it. I think it will be easier to restore a brushed finish with a scour pad. I'd like to see a polished SRD. It would be very blingy but would look great I reckon!

    Whoa! that brushed look is great! I have original beadblasted case/bracelet, and I love it, but that certainly is a wicked piece Popma! Good on Robbert for making you a one off (or maybe the first of a new line...!). Enjoy!!
