Coming together for their second collaboration, Bamford Watch Department and Badgerworks have once again elected the TAG Heuer Carrera as their canvas, this time moving on from their previous use of Fordite to an even more unexpected material for its dial construction: ground coffee. The organic material is sourced from Göteborg’s Cafe Da Matteo, a renowned coffee shop in Sweden, and then made into blank dials that are hand-finished before assembly. The watch itself takes the form of a TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5, carrying the brand’s Sellita-based automatic movement in a 41mm stainless steel case with light gray Military Grade Titanium Coating.

“It’s amazing to be working with the awesome James Thompson at Black Badger on our second collaboration,” says George Bamford, founder of BWD. “I’ve always wanted to create a wonderful tropical dial but in a modern way, and I think this recycled coffee dial really has an authentic tropical vibe to it. Accentuated inside the Carrera watch this really works well together”.

James Thompson aka Black Badger also chimed in: “For me this is a natural progression for the BWD Badgerworks project. In the same way that we previously used the Fordite material, we are exploring materials outside of the traditional realm of watchmaking. Few materials are as familiar both in appearance and experience as coffee. Economies are built on it, wars are fought over it, history is tied to it. As a planet over 2 billion cups are consumed every day.”

The special edition BWD X Badgerworks TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 with Tropical Coffee Dial will be available over on Bamford Watch Department’s online store, limited to just 20 units and retailing for £5,500 GBP (roughly $6,737 USD).

Elsewhere in watches, Parmigiani Fleurier has crafted a Toric Tourbillon Slate.
