Here comes a real banger from one of our favorite artists at the moment and Bamford Watch Department. Wes Lang teamed up with Bamford on a capsule collection of custom Rolex watches, adding his unique artistic take to the beautiful watches.
The collection features a bi-color Rolex GMT-Master II, a Rolex Submariner and a Rolex Milgauss. This kind of collaboration and especially this kind of artistic treatment on a watch, can in our opinion go very wrong very quickly. In general we are not big fans of engraved watch details, especially not when it goes beyond some initials or that kind of thing. Yet we have to admit that they got the balance perfectly right. The black on black engraved Wes Lang art turned out beautiful and definitely adds an entire new layer to the already beautiful watches. The bi-color we find hard to pull off, but the Submariner and the Milgauss both look stunning.
The Wes Lang x Bamford Watch Department Custom Rolex’s will release exclusively today at 7:30pm at Dover Street Market in London. Good luck getting your hands on one of these.
