Swedish watchmaking has come on leaps and bounds in the last few decades and this is, in no small part, thanks to brands like Triwa who were the real pioneers of the Scandinavian watchmaking scene. Well, to celebrate their tenth anniversary, the Swedish watchmakers are releasing a limited edition timepiece, only 300 will be produced, and from what we’ve seen here at Coolector HQ, they are pulling out all the stops to make this one of their finest accessories to date – say hello to the Triwa TIO (which is Swedish for 10) Watch.
The Triwa TIO Watch is a real sight to behold and anyone who is already a fan of their exemplary watches are going to be in their element here and, such is its attractiveness, we’re sure it will lead to many new fans for the brand as well. Triwa began back in 2007 when their founders, Harald, Ludvig, Tobias and Didrik, had the desire to change the face of watchmaking and, some ten years later, it’s fair to say it’s mission accomplished as they are now one of the most established brands on the market.
Come A Long Way
Few watchmakers can lay claim to a journey as impressive as Triwa who began in an old stable in Stockholm with just three hundred watches in three different styles. Now, ten years on, they’ve got one of the most recognisable timepiece brands on the market and the Triwa TIO Watch is a celebration of this very fact. Within the design of this glorious looking timepiece, Triwa have combined all the most important elements of their transformation over the last decade including using the colour scheme from their first three timepieces ever produced.
The Triwa TIO Watch boasts a golden jubilee logo chock full of little design references to their ten years in business and, as you would expect from such an important watch, Triwa have really pulled out all the stops with the materials and specifications. With this top notch watch from the Swedish watchmakers, you’ll find an automatic Miyota 9105 movement and sapphire glass. As mentioned, the watch is limited to 300 numbered pieces to celebrate the first order of 300 watches made in 2007 and will only be sold in selected stores and on the Triwa website.
A real attention to detail has gone into the design and finish of this tenth anniversary timepiece from Triwa and it has an immeasurably stylish brown organic leather strap from Tärnsjö Tannery that adds to its aesthetic appeal considerably. This is undoubtedly one of our favourite watches from the Swedish watch brand to date and for any man seeking a sleek, elegant and stylish watch which is exclusive given the short numbers being released, this would definitely be one of our top picks.
Being released on Halloween, this Triwa TIO Watch is scarily stylish and sophisticated and it boasts all the hallmarks that we’ve come to know and love from this superb Swedish watchmaker. A very admirable creation for the celebration of such an impressive landmark, this limited edition watch retails for around €530 / $630 and we fully expect for each of the 300 timepieces to positively fly off the shelves so you’ll need to move fast if you want to get your hands on one.
Triwa are a watchmaker with a highly deserved reputation in the market for producing well made, stylish and affordable timepieces and the Triwa TIO Watch is a celebration of all that they have achieved from their humble beginnings a decade ago. If you want to a part of this celebration or just love the aesthetics of the watch (which it’s hard not to) then head on over to website and bag one of your own.
