Technical Watch Company (TWCO) is a Netherlands-based micro-brand with a keen focus on producing professional tool watches. The company’s first two releases were the Sea Rescue, a beefy diver with an impressive water resistance of 600 meters, and the Air Controller, a robust pilot’s watch loosely pulling inspiration from the Fairchild Republic a-10 Thunderbolt (read our review of that watch here). TWCO’s latest is a spiritual offshoot of the Sea Rescue—an EPSA-styled dual crown dive watch dubbed Salvage Diver.
The Salvage Diver comes in at 43mm wide, with a lug-to-lug height of 51mm and a thickness of 14mm, so it’s certainly a watch with some presence. The stainless steel case features mixed finishing—fine brushing along most of the case surface with high polished bevels on the lugs. A consistent feature across TWCO’s catalogue, the lugs also include two sets of holes to open up strap options. As someone who swaps out straps quite often, it’s a detail I really appreciate.
