Bamford London has designed a watch that speaks to personalised luxury with the launch of the Bamford 80, celebrating its commitment to design language, taking the name from the home of its inception.
Designed at 80 South Audley Street (Bamford’s Mayfair HQ), the B80 represents the three pillars of Bamford London; heritage, modernity and adventure and as such, the model has been divided into these three expressions. The Bamford 80 assumes its identity as a companion for all, with each classification offering alternate dials and combinations.
For the B80 Heritage, two moods take centre stage: a sleek and traditional B80 Heritage titanium case, a nod to the classic traveller, with an authoritative black dial (above). A second colour variation exists in the B80 Heritage which is the navy dial, alluding to aeronautical tones. Across each colourway, 3,6 and 9 o’clock numerals are spotlighted in white.
The second expression is the B80 Modern, emphasising Bamford’s position to drive forward the design of the watch world, with a further two colour ways. The B80 Modern yellow delivers a sprightly neon with yellow numerals, offset against a black dial, with subtle blue indices. The signature Bamford blue (above) offers a second B80 Modern colour way, similarly at variance with the rich black tones of the dial; this time the aqua numerals, indices and hands are in harmony.
The third model is the B80 Adventure with three unmatched tones. Firstly, a hazy green for nature lovers, complete with white indices and a red second hand. The second configuration offers a warming ochre dial, with off-white indices, and a chocolate brown second-hand complimenting the retro mood. Concluding the line-up with the final expression of the B80 Adventure is a walnut brown dial (above), adorned with white indices and a bold flicker of Bamford Aqua Blue in the second hand.
“I’m really excited about the 3200 Bamford 80 watch. I can’t wait to see this on people’s wrists. The Titanium watch is very pure in its design – the expression of the circular design is unique and with the price point, we cannot wait to launch this watch.”George Bamford, Founder, Bamford London
