Finally, a watch that'll let you rider harder and faster...

The Netherlands based TW Steel, a watch manufacturing company that specializes in ‘oversized watches,’ recently launched the TW Steel Mick Doohan Special Edition timepiece. The watch has been built to honour Mick’s five consecutive world championships (from 1994-1998) in the 500cc class in motorcycle grand prix racing.

The TW Steel Mick Doohan Special Edition watch was launched at an exclusive event in Melbourne, where guests included TW Steel ambassadors David Coulthard and Eddie Jordan. The watch is available in 45mm and 48mm sizes and, according to TW Steel, features design inputs from Mick Doohan himself.

‘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,’ says Doohan.

According to unconfirmed rumours, strapping on one of these watches will allow you to corner harder, and will even let you rear-wheel-steer your Honda Fireblade out of very fast bends. For more details, visit the TW Steel website here
