Few aficionados can spare the time to search for their ultimate must-have vintage Rolex, the one without scratches, the perfect coloured dial, and the exact size to fit the wrist. Imagine being able to find the model you’ve been dreaming about without having to search through hundreds of timepieces that don’t really match up to one you dream of wearing.

Meet George Bamford of Bamford Watch Department, the UK-based leaders in watch customisation. Your search stops here with BWD’s brand new Heritage Series, taking the iconic Rolex Daytona’s design, with all the bells and whistles, and giving it that complete vintage feel.

According to BWD founder George Bamford, ‘I have always been fascinated by the beauty of vintage Rolex designs and their longevity proves that they really are the cornerstone of the whole luxury watch market. As an avid collector myself, I have always found the Paul Newman Daytona to be one of the most iconic models ever made, and so I have been working closely with my team to pay homage to this wonderful, timeless watch.’

Features include a Heritage bezel as well as shaved crown guards and a dial that dazzles in 5 different shades. It’s the attention to small details that makes this classic of the past a must for the future.
