The Bamford Watch Company was founded by George Bamford in 2016. Initially the company started as a customization company taking other brand name watches and customizing them. The business grew and expanded making great advancements in this field of expertise. The idea first came when Bamford wanted an all black Rolex watch so he got his Rolex watch DLC coated – a technique that turns the watch black for a sleeker, more modern finish. Having just returned from France wearing the wristwatch, some 25 others were interested in having the same finish applied to their watch, thus the concept of the Bamford Watch Department was born. Bamford branched out to customizing dials to match exact shades of lipsticks and bespoke designs. In 2017 Bamford Watch Company partnered up with Jean Claude Biver who was in charge of LVMH’s division. The company became the official customizer for Bvlgari, Zenith and TAG Heuer as a result. The set up enabled customers to transform the look of their watch without voiding their warranty with the official manufacturer. The headquarters of Bamford Watch Company is situated in London’s prestigious Mayfair area. Bamford began to specialize in a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating as well as a MGTC (Military Grade Titanium Coating) technique for a gloss or matt black finish and the GPC (Graphite Particle Coating) technique which adds pigment to the case. Since such time they have even developed 2 of its own watches.
