I have a lot of affection for this watch for a number of reasons... Not only is it the last of the vintage plastic glass sports watches Rolex made with the addition of an independently setable calendar mechanism but it was the first black watch we created for not only the Bamford family over 15 years ago now but the first ever customised black watch to be sold on the open market. Brands like Pro Hunter / Project X & Titan all copied the watches that the Bamfords commissioned through me. They were very specific about the logo & were right to be. It's a superb looking logo. Now that Bamford are under the LVMH umbrella they no longer customize Rolex watches, so this Bamford special edition with customised DLC case and Bamford dial is a little bit of horological history. I don't even think watch houses had started DLC coating watches at this point!
1st & foremost, we understand & take responsibility for the fact that both tastes & horological fashions are ever changing.
We do this by being willing to take back past pieces we've sold either in the form of part exchanges or cash when needed.
With clients rarely loosing more than 15-20% in this process & even benefitting from large profits on occasion, we believe this is the way to build trust with the public. For example. If going 'off piste' & not sticking to in vogue trendy watches such as Batman's, we believe you would incur the same monetary loss spending £20,000 with us on your various purchases as you would spending £8500 at new RRP.
The very fact that we've never advertised in over 30 years shows we have a long standing loyal customer base. Please see testimonials for more on this.

Like the reintroduction of the Mini motorcar over a decade ago, this reinterpretation of Big Pilot by IWC is better than the original. This 1st series Platinum example is of course the top of the top.
