In the grand scheme of watches, no. Even in the smaller perspective, no. There are just much better buys. Seiko comes to mind. I personally rank TW steel with invicta, fossil, diesel, nixon and the like. Though keep in mind that someone may come here and say the same thing but with a good connotation. Unlikely, but it’s all subjective.

Which model? If it has a Japanese quartz movements it's probably acceptable, if not well-loved here. Big, brutish watches mostly aren't so much.

It depends what you define as good. They have quite a unique style so if you see one you like at a price you think is good then go for it. Just be aware though that if you get more into watches at a later stage you might find your interest in the TW Steel diminishes quite quickly.

As fashion items they're not too bad, if you like that sort of thing. I'm not sure they translate well outside the wrong sort of nightclub and certain action movies, though (even if Arnie frequently wears similarly huge watches in public, he is a celebrity and IMO allowed to get away with it). And from a, "Are they good watches, will someone who knows watches consider it a wise choice" perspective, the answer is a resounding, "NO". If you really like huge brash watches and want to make a splash with the glitterati, look at the AP ROO line, and Panerai

The only connection with Raymond Weil is that the founders of TW Steel used to be Raymond Weil distributors (and also Maurice Lacroix) for Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

You need to look at thing like whether it has sapphire crystal, and whether it is actually water resistant and has good lume etc (if it's a diver).

Some of the Swiss Made automatic models are okay, if not a little on the large side

Wow I'm not gonna lie, I wrote off TW Steel a while back after hearing some very negative reviews regarding reliability (granted they were still a fledgling company at that stage) but giving them a second look due to this thread, that TW126 hunk of steel looks pretty darn cool. And reviews state it looks much better in person.

They're a U-Boat homage. Less expensive, but the designs aren't nearly as good.
