Triwa-Nevil-Blue-Steel-Watch-Review

The dial is done really nicely with a deep midnight or navy blue sunray dial, a red chrono second hand, and silver sunray chrono sub dials. Even the sub dials have blue numbers and second hands to give contrast, keeping the blue theme throughout the watch. The markers are all applied steel, and give the watch and elegant touch. A Miyota OS21 movement powers the Nevil, so there is no running second hand or sub dial, something I personally do not care for, as I always like to have a running second hand, but that is just my opinion.

The case back is all high-polished stainless steel with the Triwa name and logo engraved in the center. The case back also displays “designed in Sweden”. Now, with the use of the Miyota movement, it is certainly not made in Switzerland and does not say made in Sweden either. I was not able to find the info via the Triwa website. I do not want to infer where Triwa is produced, but I am guessing China, but I could be wrong on that. With that said; the watches coming out of China these days, especially from many of the micro brands, are excellent, so of course there would be nothing wrong with that.

The strap is a combination blue canvas and leather, held together with blue stitching. The leather is very soft and the canvas section is nicely woven with no frayed edges. The back of the strap is a soft natural leather that is stamped with the Triwa Logo and the phrase “Born and worn with Passion and Pride”. I’m not too fond of a company telling me how I should wear their watch, but I do agree, that if you are purchasing it, you should wear it with pride, especially if you enjoy it.  And of course, that is just me making a little joke. The strap is a little thin at just about 2mm thick, if that, and I think the watch can use a strap a little more substantial with its 12mm thick case.

I've been an avid watch lover since the age of 7. Watches are not only my hobby but a passion. My favorite style used to be dive watches, but field or non bezel watches have been growing on me. When I'm not reviewing watches I am either cooking or with family and friends.
