Online retailer Moda Operandi is known for their highly exclusive trunkshows featuring commissioned one-of-a-kind designer items including watches. Their latest exclusive collaboration showcases the timeless and iconic Rolex watch; the first, from George Bamford, who brings you one-of-a-kind luxury versions of Rolex sport watches and the second, from CMT Fine Watch and Jewelry Advisors, the brainchild of Carl Cohen, who brings you a heritage assortment of Rolexes. With both of these lines, Moda Operandi ensures that there’s a Rolex out there for every discerning taste. This online trunkshow is available for a limited time this month in June.
Bamford’s Rolexes are a special breed. Started by George Bamford after attending a dinner party where six other guests had the same Rolex Daytona as his, Bamford became the first company to personalize a range of steel sports watches. What started out as a basic blackening process for their pieces was upgraded with a secret formula perfected by a highly advanced military grade coating–each finished timepiece is a highly exclusive one-off piece.
Bamford’s Rolex Milgauss withstands incredibly strong magnetic fields with a small Faraday Shield and features a green agate dial with yellow-and-white hands and a black three-link steel bracelet. The signature black strap is the result of a highly scientific PVD coating process that results in a stunning, flawless, almost diamond-hard black finish that completely transforms each timepiece. The Daytona Chrono by Bamford is a celebrity favorite. Sported by David Beckham, it features the original bold black dial with a subtle chronograph display, bright light-blue accents, and a three-link black-steel bracelet.
For those looking for something with a little more traditional, CMT presents The Rolex Oysterdate Manual Wind Watch. The Oysterdate features a manual wind movement and measures 34mm in size, with a rare and beautiful silver dial and applied silver stick markers to match. Produced in 1962, this watch features a workhorse Rolex manual movement, which is known as one of the finest manual wind movements Rolex has ever produced. The watch also features a screw-down crown, acrylic crystal, and date aperture at three o’clock. This stunning example comes fitted on a sporty striped nylon strap.
