M.SHINODA X BWD DAYTONA
Bamford Watch Department (BWD) in collaboration with Mike Shinoda, co-lead vocalist and producer of Grammy-Award-winning rock band, Linkin Park, have united for a highly collectible customized watch, the M.SHINODA x BAMFORD.
The striking Super Matte black Daytona features the Bamford Watch Department’s signature hard-wearing MGTC (military grade titanium coating) which is a unique formulae which offers a hardening process that goes beyond the limitations of DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) and the previously used PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition). The dark grey dial with Mike Shinoda’s skull design in the twelve o’clock position has a vintage look, with reduced text simplifying the dial and making it unique whilst remaining classic.
BWD Founder George Bamford says,
“This was a thrilling collaboration for me,” says Mike Shinoda. “BWD are the best in the business of high quality bespoke luxury, and at the forefront of cutting-edge customization. My band-mates and I have been expanding the boundaries of our fashion-related releases—making some even more ubiquitous and easily accessible, and others distinctly limited and aspirational. In the range of our offerings, this timepiece sets a new bar for the latter.”
The M.SHINODA x BAMFORD watch will be exclusively from Bamford Watch Department and Global Partners – price on application.
