Since Bamford London began its watchmaking journey with the Mayfair model in 2017, the brand has continued to expand its range. Moving the brand even further forward, the Bamford B347 is the next chapter in Bamford London’s story.
The Swiss-made Bamford B347 is an automatic monopusher chronograph and the Bamford B347 range launches with two limited edition eye-catching designs. One design showcases the signature Bamford aqua blue and black colourways whilst the second design uses a black and white ‘reverse panda’ design creating two classically stylish looks.
A 41.5mm black cutting-edge forged carbon fibre case houses a Sellita SW510 automatic movement and combined with the bi-compax configuration of the SW510 movement, the single push-button located at 2 o’clock provides the start-stop-reset function. As well as a 30 minute counter at 3 o’clock and date at 6 o’clock.
The Bamford B347 is paired with a black rubber strap, however, there are rubber straps for purchase in 4 further colours - Red, Yellow, Blue and Khaki. In addition, there are leather, cordura and canvas straps in a variety of options to compliment the two designs. All with quick release spring bars for ease of switching so the wearer can create different looks with these watches. All straps come with a choice of buckle in steel or black finishes as well.
George Bamford, founder of Bamford London says, “The Bamford B347 is an exciting next step for Bamford London and it has been a long standing desire of mine to create this watch. The monopusher chronograph is one of my favourite types of watches as I love the asymmetric layout and simplicity of function. I am always drawn to a retro modern design with the use of cutting edge materials and I always strive to push the design limit. Using some of our signature colourways and using carbon fibre on the case, I love the aesthetics and technicalities of these watches. Since the prototypes arrived, they have constantly been on my wrist and I hope people feel the same way as I do. I am so excited to offer a brand new watch for the market and I cannot wait to see it on people’s wrists.”
Presented in a brand new unique packaging, the Bamford B347 is an exciting addition to Bamford London’s collection. The Bamford London B347 watch has an RRP of £2,500 GBP (including VAT) and it is available directly from Bamford London and exclusively from Hodinkee.com for one month before becoming available from Bamford London partners worldwide.
