DSMNY Jewelry Focus — Bamford Watch Department
Timed to the first Madison Square Garden show of his ‘Elton John: Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, the Bamford Watch Department has launched ten customized Franck Muller watches from Sir Elton John’s personal archive.
The limited-edition pieces, which are available exclusively at Dover Street Market New York, feature uniquely customized faces and the original wrist bands worn by Sir Elton John himself.
The timepieces range from $11,000 to $22,000 and are packaged in a special acrylic box, made specifically for this collection. Bamford Watch Department also offers the opportunity to order a customized band, to fit any wrist size.
“I am thrilled to work with Bamford Watch Department to put a very personal spin on some of the Franck Muller pieces that I have collected over the years. These ten pieces were handpicked from my archive. The team at Bamford Watch Department have carefully applied the swirl design I love so much onto the faces, and added a custom Elton second hand” says Sir Elton John.
“It was such an honour to customise this collection of watches owned by Sir Elton John. Vibrant colour and design have become a trademark of Sir Elton and so it was great to incorporate that within these carefully selected watches. Gaining the approval of Franck Muller to customise their watches for the first time and creating this wonderful collection has been a special project for Bamford Watch Department” says George Bamford.
