I recently visited the Bamford Watch Department, based in London, to get a closer look at this confusing company that has always been controversial. George Bamford is a warm and friendly person. He is probably one of the most active and enthusiastic Cheap Rolex Replica Watches fans and collectors in the world – considering his company’s Bamford Watch Department (BWD) has criticized Rolex watches. This is a bit ironic.
Personally, I have never been vague about what Banford has done, nor have he been insensitive to those who are not interested in his work. That being said, I have never been able to accurately point out how many (but not all) watch enthusiasts think of Banford. So far, I believe I have solved a problem, that is, “What did Bamford do to irritate many watch lovers while making others happy.” “Thanks to the Bundford Monitor Commando, I think I have a good answer – so if you agree, please let me know.”
Update: The watch in the picture is actually a pre-production prototype, not as detailed as the final version. The watch image on the black background above is the final model. So… one of the latest watch collections from Bamford Watch is the “Commando” series (debut). This watch is stocked with Rolex Submariner or Milgauss watches and is modified with a special outer casing coating (available in several colors) and a custom dial from Bamford. The commando of the Banford Watch Division even brought a very cool package to complete the theme of military watches, and George Banford invested so much time and effort.
Hands-on, the Banford Commando’s watch is cool. base-Rolex watches have matt paint in military green (which will have other colors in the near future) and “sandwich” dials are designed to provide enhanced illuminators while incorporating the look of the Rolex Explorer watch. These models are clearly not Rolex Replica explorers. .
Banford has some very high-tech industrial coating processes which is why they can do things that others can’t. Can you name the durable green coating of many other watches? I can’t. In theory, this is a big deal. It uses graphite powder coating (GPC) technology, which I find very interesting. For example, PVD coatings (which are the way most metal watches are blacked out) have limited color.
This particular model is Bamford Commando Submariner (which I call it) because it is based on Rolex 114060 (aBlogtoWatch review), but it looks very different. The case and movement are in stock, while the paint on the coat, dial, and elements of the hand is done by Banford. Need to be clear is that this is not a watch Rolex Replica Watches will warranty or even serve. Fortunately, Banford covers all of this.
The disadvantages of the Banford Watch Department Commando Watch are the relatively high price and work around some details of the paint. When we first introduced the Bamford Watch Department Commando Edition watch, many viewers correctly pointed out that the red paint applied at the 12 o’clock position on the rotating frame was “bleeding” outside the triangular space where the red paint was turned upside down. The way it is done. This is definitely what luxury watch buyers want to avoid, and what Banford should avoid. At least, it’s not what you see in the production of Rolex watches.
Although the custom dials produced by Banford are very cool, they do not compete directly with the original dial quality of Rolex watches. In addition, it is unclear how the green coatings of these Bundford watch department commando watches will wear out over time, which is a further source of unpredictability. If Rolex has been trying to embody what is in their marketing for years, it is that having Rolex is very predictable – and in a good way.
So I think that’s why I think people who watch the watch often feel uneasy about what Banford has done. The problem is not the design, creativity or philosophy of Banford. The question is how these designs draw on the name of Rolex, and I believe that this approach is beginning to approach unfounded levels. In short, under what circumstances, Bamford’s watch department will customize the Fake Rolex Watches instead of the Rolex name on the dial?
The Banford Watch Department and other Rolex Customs are there to buy new Rolex watches for free, offer customized treatments, and sell them. The question is, to what extent these watches can be modified and still use Rolex’s name. A watch from the Banford Watch Department without the Rolex name (although it is obviously Rolex below) will succeed? Or removing the Rolex name from the dial will fundamentally change the value proposition of these watches to the target consumers. ?
I want to spend a minute talking about the type of people who bought the Banford watch – there are many. I have talked to George Bamford many times about this issue. One of the themes that Banford’s clients seem to have been talking about is that they are rich, willful, independent, and like products designed for themselves, of course. I also like to show myself with my own watch. These people also respect long-established institutions (such as Rolex). So the company’s customers, like George Bamford Rolex’s hardcore fans, but in their lives, they want their Best Rolex Replica Watches to be completely unique, or partially smaller production models that allow them to make a unique The statement wears a very respectable timer.
Rolex’s romance is strong. The appeal and appeal of the brand is huge and cannot be taken lightly. Rolex is not only a top watch manufacturer, but according to at least one research, is the world’s most famous brand. This means that Rolex’s name—and the quality of their products—is something that many consumers want to show on their wrists.
When a Rolex watch is painted in a special color, put on a new strap, or engraved (like the artificial Rolex mentioned here), this is a very custom Rolex, provided that it remains The original movement and dial. Once you start to intervene more on elements such as the dial and fundamentally change the products that Rolex releases from their factory, while retaining Rolex’s name – I don’t think you are still selling Rolex.
In fact, this is a bit ironic, because in the past few months, I have been thinking about what kind of Bamford special Rolex I should be doing for myself. This was produced after watching a lot of Banford watches, and asked a very natural question “What do I want?” “One thing I have been thinking about is that I hope Bamford’s name is more prominent than Rolex. “I even thought about removing the Rolex name completely from the dial because I think the watch is like a work of art, and the artist is George Bamford.
So, will Rolex’s name help or damage their sales from the watches in the Banford Watch Department? I am sure that George Banford’s initial reaction to this idea was negative. As a super fan of Rolex, I believe he will disagree with the fact that he likes his favorite brand (this is the subject he and his staff spent so much time and energy on creating) the sudden lack of the name Rolex. Bamford also customizes watches from other brands such as Panerai, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, but custom Rolex watches are still the cornerstone of his business.
Although it must be handled properly, I think I can make a very strong argument. Bamford looks at the department clocks – for those stocks that are beyond the color of the stock Rolex watches, it is best to dial the Rolex name. Most people know that there is a Rolex watch underneath the watch, and the back of the watch may be an interesting statement (George always likes interesting sentences), such as “A Rolex watch at birth, now graduated from Bamford” – Or something similar.
Although there are not many similar products in the watch industry, there are some in the automotive industry. For example, in the case of RUF, it starts with ordinary Porsche cars and, in some cases, modifies them in large numbers. Headquartered in Germany, RUF completely removes the Porsche badge from the outside of the car. Their customers fully understand what RUF was originally living in. I think RUF is about buying a stock Porsche and making it unique. This is not the case with Banford. Will the products of the Banford Watch Department be more popular with watch lovers and Rolex? Just take the Rolex name off the dial and replace it with their own name.
This will position Bamford with no suspicious ethical categories and tastes (positions in some places), but more locations are designed by versatile and experimenters to praise Rolex’s larger world – rather than an entity that only appears to ride it.
George Bamford himself is very interested in the idea of producing a Rolex watch without the Rolex name, and may have abandoned the idea for reasons he thought was good. However, perhaps he did not consider this issue from the perspective I mentioned. Now, people’s judgments on all Banford Rolex watches are the same as their judgments on Rolex watches (strict review). However, if they don’t think Bamford is riding a Rolex name and playing more about the core Rolex design and making watches in the world, I think they will not only be more tolerant, but also more suitable for the concept and implementation of what Bamford looks at the department.
The Banford Watch Department Assault Edition watch is completely cool. I like special metal cases and display files, as well as a very cool and stylish smooth design. Having said that, the custom dial and other work made me feel that these watches should no longer use Rolex’s name, just simply replace it with the name of Bamford. Customers of the brand know that watches originated from Rolex products, and over time, I think this will result in a net benefit for George Bamford’s business if they carry themselves more like the Revolutionary United Front, unlike those companies that will seek to ride a The name of the big brand. The problem is that the Banford Watch Department is actually a great brand, they only need to have more “ownership” of what they do. Bamford looks at the departmental commando version of the basic Rolex watch for £12,000 Milguass model and £13,000 base Rolex submarine model.
