Bamford Watch Department have spent the last decade customising watches from brands including Rolex, Patek, AP and more. Craig caught up with George Bamford in Paris to have a chat about the brand and his influences, viewing a number of pieces finished in the classic Bamford PVD style. In recent years Bamford has evolved their offering with the Bamford Heritage Series, reimagining iconic Rolex watches with modern engineering and finishes.
Last week they unveiled the Bamford Heritage Series Rolex Submariner and MilSub inspired by two of the most collectible Rolex models ever produced, the 6538 ‘James Bond’ Big Crown and the Military Submariner 5517 (MilSub) characterised by its famous Sword hands and ‘T’ dial. Both watches in original condition could easily fetch 6 figures making the Bamford releases below an exciting prospect for vintage Rolex lovers who want the functionality of a contemporary watch but retain the vintage appeal.
Both watches are priced at £12,500.00 and can be purchased here.
