In a world of mass production, a desire to re-discover the lost art of personalisation led to the birth of Bamford Watch Department, a bespoke customisation service that harks back to the boutique craftsmen of the past.
Bamford has since gone from strength to strength, causing something of a sensation in the luxury world with an extensive array of exclusive limited edition designs and exciting high-profile collaborations.
One such partnership – the result of Bamford’s owner George Bamford being a life-long Snoopy fan – sees three special edition watches featuring characters from the hit cartoon series, Peanuts.
The first of the three designs features Snoopy, the famous animated beagle, daydreaming on top of his doghouse. Charlie Brown, the kind-hearted protagonist of the comic, is the muse for the second design, depicted by his iconic dramatic crying face. The third of the limited edition watches features an illustration of Snoopy by Swedish graffiti artist, Andre – better known by his graffiti artist alter-ego, Mr. A – complete with his signature wink and love hearts. The watch also features the wistful quote “life is a dream.”
All three designs are Bamford Mayfair watches. Originally a “service watch,” lent as a replacement to clients while they were having their own watches in for service, it soon became clear that its unique style was attracting quite a fan base. Following increased demand from customers wanting to actually buy the watch, the Bamford Mayfair was born.
Available in a range of eye-popping colours, the Mayfair has been updated ahead of the summer. With an extensive choice of bezel colour, coating and type of strap, wearers can let their personal style shine. For even more individuality, the case-back can also be engraved.
Made using the iconic Miyota quartz 2035 movement, the Bamford Mayfair is both reliable, and waterproof to 10ATM. The perfect piece for accessorising your poolside outfit this summer!
