Default Bamford releases custom Rolex Daytona Ferrari red watch

Quote:
The high-performance custom Rolex Daytona from Bamford & Sons of London is now here. Lately the mainstay of superior British style has surfaced with a fresh variant of the traditional sports watch, intended to honor classic Ferraris with a dial finished in red color. The coating on the latest Daytona stainless steel case and bracelet is a military grade, scratch proof PVD, while it is not flat black similar to the earlier Bamford version. A totally limited number of 25 of the Ferrari red watch are being manufactured at $23,000 (€18,120) each, obtainable only by special arrangement from the flagship of Bamford London located in Sloane Square.
A bespoke dial with matching color and individualized service on vintage Rolex versions such as the Submariner, GMT, Explorer II, Sea Dweller and Milgauss are now being made available by Bramford to its customers besides its special limited edition pieces.

I like that.

I expected some huge "look at me" Ferrari logo, but this is very tasteful.

That looks great. BTW - I'm sure they couldn't use the logo because Ferrari licenses Panerai watches.

Good point.

To me, the logos on watches, shoes, or glasses just seems kinda cheap and ricey. If you really want people to know how baller you are, go buy a Ferrari.


Im gonna wear this around my neck to let everybody know how cool I am.

to you maybe, to some people that's an investment, if you think you're going to take a bath in that watch 10 or 20 years from now you've got another thought coming

Very true. A $23k new car will be just about worthless in 20 years while this watch will have appreciated nicely. It's all in how you look at things.
