Bamford Watch Department ‘Bamford Mayfair’ Watches

High-end watch customiser Bamford Watch Department (BWD) have released its own range of watches called the Bamford Mayfair. Founder George Bamford tells us that BWD clients are given a temporary watch when their Bamford watch is handed into BWD’s in-house service centre, and clients have subsequently asked to purchased their temporary ‘service watch’. These requests inspired George to develop a ‘permanent-temporary’ watch if you like and as a result, the Bamford Mayfair watch collection was born.


As you’d expect with BWD the Bamford Mayfair collection are available in a number of combinations including a choice of dial colour, bezel, coating and type of strap. Choose a 40mm matte black watch with a HI-TECH matte ceramic bezel with embossed numbers or a 40mm matte grey watch with an anodised aluminium bezel. All watches are available in a range of straps including rubber, nylon and handmade leather. In addition you can engrave the caseback of the watch with your own personalised text up to 20 characters. Ideal for gifting.


The entire watch is water resistant to 10 ATM and includes a perfectly reliable movement, the popular Quartz Miyota 2035. The case measures 40mm and the base material is stainless steel. The dial is covered by a mineral curved glass and on the dial, LumiNova indices and hands make the time visible any time of day.

“The Bamford Mayfair has evolved quite literally on my wrist. When I handed my own watch in for a service and put on the ‘service watch’ I learnt very quickly how much I loved it and I did not want to take it off. I knew we had to create a watch which developed and improved the original design and it is really exciting to offer this new range of watch.” -George Bamford

Available online at MRPORTER.COM and directly from BWD and their worldwide stockists, the online customiser allows clients to make their own Bamford Mayfair at the cost of £425. This range is available whilst stock lasts.
