Essentials: George Bamford
FOUNDER OF BAMFORD WATCH DEPARTMENT
George Bamford and his Bamford Watch Department imprint are synonymous with uncompromising style and quality. Having crafted personalized customization jobs for the likes of Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Heuer, it’s clear that their dedication and passion for engineering is what sets them apart from the rest of the chronograph outfits who offer up half-hearted customization jobs. In the ongoing Essentials series, founder George Bamford walks us through just a few items that are a requisite to his daily success. Notable offerings include a personalized Goyard wallet, Hermes business card holder, BWD Daytona prototype, and an iPad – which he describes as one of the greatest portfolios to showcase images of watches.
