Bamford Watch Department is getting arty with its latest collaboration. The London-based watch company, which personalizes sport steel watches, has teamed with artist Daniel Arsham on a limited-edition range of customized Rolex Milgauss timepieces. “I have always admired Daniel from afar so I was honored when the opportunity to collaborate arose,” said George Bamford, founder. “I was mesmerized when I saw his design and concept, and bringing it to life has been a labor of love.”
The lunar-inspired piece is being called the “Black Moon,” and takes inspiration from one of Arsham’s original paintings. Details include the company’s signature Military Grade Titanium Coating, done in matte black, with a mother-of-pearl dial. Only thirteen pieces will be available, each inspired with its limited-edition number and a quote from Arsham. The “Black Moon” watch will be sold at Colette, Fivestory New York and Bamford Watch Department’s own store.
