or 2023, Bamford London kickstarts the year with a watch that speaks to personalised luxury with the launch of the Bamford 80. A celebration of Bamford London’s commitment to design language, the B80 takes its name from the very home of its conception: 80 South Audley Street.
At its core, the B80 represents the three pillars of Bamford London; heritage, modernity and adventure and as such, the model has been divided into these three expressions. Championing a bold approach to watchmaking, the Bamford 80 assumes its identity as a companion for all, with each classification offering alternate dials and combinations.
For the B80 Heritage, two moods take centre stage: a sleek and traditional B80 Heritage titanium case, a nod to the classic traveller, with an authoritative black dial. A second colour variation exists in the B80 Heritage which is the navy dial, alluding to aeronautical tones. Across each colourway, 3,6 and 9 o’clock numerals are spotlighted in white.
The second expression of the B80 is the B80 Modern, emphasising Bamford’s position to drive forward the design of the watch world, with a further two colour ways. The B80 Modern yellow delivers a sprightly neon with yellow numerals, offset against a black dial, with subtle blue indices. Meanwhile, the signature Bamford blue offers a second B80 Modern colourway, similarly at variance with the rich black tones of the dial; this time the aqua numerals, indices and hands are in harmony.
The third and final model of the B80 launch is the B80 Adventure with three unmatched tones. Firstly, a hazy green for nature lovers, complete with white indices and a red second hand. The second configuration offers a warming ochre dial, with off-white indices, and a chocolate brown second-hand complimenting the retro mood. Concluding the line-up with the final expression of the B80 Adventure is a walnut brown dial, adorned with white indices and a bold flicker of Bamford Aqua Blue in the second hand.
Inside the titanium case of each B80 model is a Swiss-made Sellita SW300-1 movement, complete with 25 jewels, 28,800 VpH, a 56-hour power reserve.
Beyond the model, personalisation remains central, with each watch encased in a unique sliding box, decorated in hues reminiscent of old racing cars, central to Bamford London’s inspiration. Both classical and bold in presence, the B80 warmly extends a hand to collectors and novices alike through its emphasis on choice: a model to suit all.
“I’m really excited about the 3200 Bamford 80 watch. I can’t wait to see this on people’s wrists. The Titanium watch is very pure in its design - the expression of the circular design is unique and with the price point, we cannot wait to launch this watch,” said George Bamford.
