George Bamford’s name is synonymous with personalised luxury products, having made a very successful career by customizing luxury time pieces. George’s passion and fresh approach to watchmaking clearly shows in his latest creation, the Bamford GMT, his first watch to house the Swiss Made self-winding Sellita SW330-1 movement with 25 jewels and a 42 hour power reserve.
Following the success of the Bamford Mayfair launched in 2017, the Bamford GMT is the next phase for Bamford London. George says “Being an avid traveller and constantly finding myself between two time zones, we felt inspired to create our first GMT watch with a Swiss mechanical movement and automatic 24-hour GMT hand function. Our vision for Bamford London is to continue to drive innovation over the next few years and we are delighted to have the GMT play its part in that.”
In addition to the Swiss mechanical movement with 28,800 beats per hour and a 4 hz frequency and perpetual calendar, the case of the GMT is made with 316L grade stainless steel measuring 40mm in diameter and 11.2mm in thickness. The new timepiece has the additional benefit of being water resistant to 100m / 10ATM and, as the name suggests, an automatic 24-hour GMT hand function with internal rotating bezel, allowing users to view a separate time zone.
The Bamford GMT timepiece is available in Bamford London’s own unique colourways, four of which can be pre-ordered from the 26th November 2018 online at Bamfordlondon.com, to be delivered at the end of March 2019. Rumour has it that they are going like candy so if I were you, I’d put my order in sooner rather than later.
The Bamford GMT watches have an RRP of £1,100.
