Defined by the signature hook/crown cap and two steel dots on the leather strap it's an instantly recognisable design icon. The easy to read face gives you a date function and the watch itself is water resistant to 100 metres depth. The glass face is scratch resistant meaning you can wear it every day.

Model number cs31.

Watch features:

  • Scratch resistant glass.
  • Black dial.
  • Face width 45mm.

  • Stainless steel case.

Some may hate the huge crown and dial, though. Don't think this model CS31 has Lume either (Argos ebay also sells the CS21 for £5 more at £44.99, mentioned here - kudos Geemac). CS21s with Lume here

Here's an in-depth review of the 45mm on Watchuseek (cream dial): forums.watchuseek.com/f71…tml

Apparently TW Steel also features a higher end model with a Swiss Ronda 585 Caliber movement
..and there's a 50mm version available too.

In Dutch, but here's an unboxing and quick review, this is the larger 50mm variant:

Amazon says the (Argos) 45mm dial version has a 22mm lug width (if you want to change the strap) - though Amazon have caught me out with incorrect watch dimensions, will try to confirm.

Great spot!
Thanks louiselouise.
Well .... There can be no complaints about the dial being overly busy.

Thanks. I'd rather go for the CS21 instead, then, as I prefer lume. Link here ebay.co.uk/itm…600

Edit: Does the cream CS21 ebay.co.uk/itm…613 have a luminescent dial?

If you like the canteen style then this is cracking value. Heat!

I linked to the UK and Dutch TW Steel sites in the original post
I dunno if I love this or hate it lol
Great deal. I went for the black strap version. I was in a US-based monthly watch subscription service called Watchgang, and they had the automatic versions of these one particular month. The problem was that random colours would be sent out (green face/gold strap anyone?) but it was roughly £100 per month for the black tier with mostly autos. I quit as customs charges were ridiculous. Heat for this, as although quartz, the build quality is very good and this price is well worth it.
Another top notch post from Louise2. Was really tempted till I bumped into the lack of lume which made me take a step back then I noticed even more how the squared off hands just do not sit well with the rounded details of the face.
The Seiko seems well priced too.
Thought I'd share this ditty.

Was looking at a watch on ebay. Didn't know what was lumed on the face (I like lume). Couldn't find any pic of the face showing what was lumed.

So I asked the seller of the watch "What is lumed?"

My entire reply was.. "It stands for glow in the dark".

Is the strap colour in the link the actual colour or the one in the post pic? They are quite different and I prefer the one in the pic above.... Any ideas?

I got the additional jpegs from the Dutch TW Steel website. As the watch dial is the same I'd assume the strap is the same - though I'm aware they come in different colours/straps. Argos' pictures tend not to be that great.

I should add that I read some not very good reviews about the strap last night (typically I can't remember where now!). Many on Watchuseek and similar forums tend to swap their straps on arrival.

If your looking to swap the strap goto Steinhart to get really good straps they also do fantastic mechanical watches with ETA movements. Can highly recommend their Pilot watches .

Looks like a nice watch
Bought the 44.99 limited dial one. Great value at this price. Hot
Can anyone find anywhere that tells the thickness of the watch? I have a TW Steel and it’s too thick. Face size at 45mm is good but the thickness is what I’m looking for
Christ that's cheap, I realise it's a U-Boat rip off, but this is an awesome price
makes me sick, heat for the price.
I remember buying 2 TW steel watches for my 21st 7 years ago.
I paid £325 each ,
can't buy it the mardy people at argos banned me for leaving neg FB years ago

Steinhart looks great, but many of the accessories cost much more than this watch!

Amazon has the TWCS31 listed as "Product Dimensions: 11 x 15 x 13 cm ; 141 g" but that's probably for the box itself, as they tend to focus on shipping weight/dimensions.

May be worth putting a question up on Q&A.

Yeah they do Louise but the straps last for years rather than just a year or two and that's with daily use, you pays your money as they say .
Nice looking watch at the price
Has anyone got one of these?Is the crown annoying sticking out so far?
Edited by: "phantom1973" 11th Dec 2018
Just ordered. Will go nicely with my other 2 TW Steel watches. Heat!
Surprised this listing is still going - sometimes when I post from argos ebay there's only a handful left HUKDers will be getting a TW Steel watch under the tree this Xmas, maybe
Bought this for Hubby for his birthday for just a little more.
Soundly rejected and returned.

His reason was it is just a cheap U-BOAT copy.
No quality no weight and no style.
Each to their own but he is a watch buff and called it rubbish.

I have a massive 50mm TW which is the same style just in rose gold.

I wear my watch on my left hand and the hinge cap starts to hurt my wrist after a few hours, great looking watch but will leave marks on your wrist.

Heat added too, I payed over £300 for mine 5 years ago.
