founder of Bamford Watch Department a company that customises luxury timepieces for clients has a pencheant for sushi and rare Soviet-era vodkas.

What led to the creation of your
company, Bamford Watch Department?

My dad gave me a Rolex Daylona several years ago. I wore it to a party and there were nine other people wearing the same timepiece. lt wasn't cool. I felt like a lady who had arrived at a ball and everyone else was wearing the same dress as mine.

I decided to create something individual for myself. I modified an old Rolex Submariner by applying some black DLC (Diamond-like carbon) paint-the predecessor of today's PVD
coating-onto the timepiece. lt got 25 orders from watch aficionados. I was surprised as I didn't start oullo revolutionise the watch world, I just wanted something bespoke fo1 myself. Today, I want to tell watch lovers you can have something unique for yourself and stand out from the crowd.
