The watch emits a bold look and a performance is secured withthe reknowned Miyota 6S20 chronograph movement.

Each VR|46 Pilot Special Edition also carries the distinctive yellow 46 logo on the lower chrono eye while the VR|46 logo is proudly adorned in grey on the black silicon strap.  The look of the strap is completed by a steel clasp to mirror the case.

In relation to the reveal TW Steel Chief Design Officer Ton Cobelens, stated that: “Our initial VR|46 Grandeur Tech and Pilot editions were so well received last year it was a natural progression for us to expand our association with the VR|46 brand to include new extensions. I felt a new Pilot execution, based on their popularity, would be a great addition to the VR|46 line.  It’s a popular design and matched together with the powerful Miyota 6S20, it looks sporty and therefore fitting with its brand associations.  Our race-inspired designs capture the very essence of their heritage and in this case, fans of VR|46 and Valentino have a timepiece with performance and style in abundance.”
