I overstated it as an homage. In an interview with the designer on wristwatchreview.com, quote:
When asked what kind of watch he was wearing, he said, “no big-house watch actually (a TW Steel: “Which is sturdy as hell and always runs on time” and a La martina watch …, though I am saving for a Panerai, I just love the simplicity.” The TW Steel and Panerai style show up in his design, and his taste for big, simple watches.
