Bamford Watch Department unveils its latest timepiece, the All Black Dial Explorer I. A contemporary take on the classic Rolex Explorer I, Bamford Watch Department has applied its signature PVD coating to the exterior of the watch and blacked out almost the entire face of the watch for a sleek, tonal look. As with all Bamford timepieces, this model will be available in strictly limited numbers. Find out more at Bamford Watch Department.
Bamford Watch Department announces their brand new customized Rolex Sky-Dweller – available in the signature Black MPVD coating with Bamford aqua and white accent colors on a black dial. The Sky-Dweller is one of the first complication watches to be reimagined by the creative forces of the Bamford Watch Department and features the ability to display the time in two time zones simultaneously, but can also tastefully display the date and month on the same dial. In addition, the new 9001 caliber movement is not only one of the most complex movements available, but also one of the most reliable. Simplicity, luxury, reliability, and geography-defying elegance – certainly everything a person could want in a watch. Due to the highly sought after nature of the piece, the Bamford Sky-Dweller will be available in an extremely exclusive run of 8 pieces for £43,500 GBP (approximately $69,700 USD).
