BWD x Daniel Arsham – ‘The Black Moon’ Rolex Milgauss
We have forged a stunning Milgauss alongside New York artist Daniel Arsham that is sure to have horologists and art enthusiasts over the moon. The Black Moon replicates an original painting by Daniel Arsham creating the unique dial design that is all at once classic and futuristic, fusing together rugged lunar imagery and sleek, refined details in a highly aesthetic piece.
The Black Moon features our ultra-hard Military Grade Titanium Coating (MGTC) in matte black, giving the watch a totally flawless and scratch-resistant finish, whilst the unique Mother of Pearl dial is beautifully crafted into a lunar surface that will transfix all who gaze upon it. Each timepiece is inscribed with its own limited edition number as well as a quote from Daniel Arsham, and comes housed in a gorgeous matte black acrylic presentation box that has been modelled on Daniel’s work.
‘As an artist, everything that I create is bespoke and original and I often think about craftsmanship and precision ’ explained Daniel Arsham. ‘BWD also share these values and were wonderful to collaborate with. I savoured the opportunity to paint my thoughts onto such an exquisite item. The final results are elegant and refined and I’m very proud to see this dream realised.’
The Black Moon Milgauss is available exclusively from Colette, Five Story New York and from Bamford Watch Department as part of a limited edition set of 13.
