The inclusive cross-section for tW production in proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 13$ TeV is measured of a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$ collected by the CMS experiment. The measurement is performed in events with one electron and one muon, and exploits kinematic differences between the signal and the dominating $t\bar{t}$ background through the use of multivariant discriminants designed to separate the two processes. The measured cross-section of $\sigma = 63.1 \pm 1.8~({\rm stat}) \pm 6.0~({\rm syst}) \pm 2.1~({\rm lumi})$ pb is in agreement with Standard Model expectations.
