Replica Rolex Explorer Series Bamford Watch Department Made Watches UK

I recently visited the headquarters of London-based “Bamford Watch Department” in order to get a more intimate view of this fascinating company which continues to be so very controversial. A warm and highly congenial man, George Bamford is perhaps one of the world’s most active and ardent Rolex fans and collectors – which is slightly ironic given the amount of criticism he receives for what his company Bamford Watch Department (BWD) does to Rolex timepieces.

I’ve personally never been ambiguous about my appreciation for what Bamford does, nor am I insensitive to those who are not particularly taken with his work. With that said, I’ve never quite been able to pinpoint the issue many (not all) watch lovers have with what Bamford does. That is, until now, as I believe I have solved the problem of “what is Bamford doing that irritates so many watch lovers while at the same time pleasing others.” Thanks to the Bamford Watch Department Commando, I think I have a very good answer – so let me know if you agree.
UPDATE: The pictured watch is actually a pre-production prototype which is not detailed like the final versions will. The image of the Rolex explorer replica watches UK above with the black background is of the final model. So… one of the newest timepiece collections from Bamford Watch Department are the “Commando” watches which take stock Rolex Submariner or Milgauss watches and modify them with special case coatings (that will come in a few colors) as well as custom dials produced by Bamford. The Bamford Watch Department Commando watches even come with very cool packaging to complete the military watch theme that George Bamford put so much time and effort into.

Hands-on, the Bamford Commando Rolex fake watches are pretty cool. The base-Rolex watches have been given a matte coating in military green (which will also have other colors in the near future) along with “sandwich” style dials which are meant to offer enhanced luminant while also integrating the look of Rolex Explorer watches to these models which are clearly not Rolex Explorers.
Bamford has access to some pretty high-tech industrial coating processes which is how they are able to do things which others cannot. Can you name a lot of other watches with a durable green coating? I can’t. This is, in theory, a sort of big deal, and uses a Graphite Powder Coating (GPC) technique which I find to be quite fascinating. PVD coating, for example, (which is how most metal watches are coated in black) is limited in the colors that it can produce.

Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master Series Gold Case Watches UK

At Baselworld 2016 Rolex introduced a new version of its nautical watch, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master series replica watches, for the first time in a combination of 904L steel and Everose gold, with a warm-toned chocolate dial.

Sporty but sleek, the new Yacht-Master 40  is strongly characterised by its bidirectional rotatable 60-minute graduated bezel in Everose gold with polished raised numerals and graduations which stand out clearly against a matt, sand-blasted background. This bezel is not just decorative and can be used, as an example, to calculate the sailing time between two buoys.

The use of gold and steel on the same watch has been a signature feature of Rolex since 1933, when the brand registered the Rolesor name for this combination of metals.

On the Yacht-Master, Everose gold is used for the bezel as well as for the centre bracelet links while the winding crown, the middle case and the outer bracelet links are made of 904L steel.

With its middle case crafted from a solid block of steel and the fluted case back hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex cheap fake watches watchmakers to access the movement, the Yacht-Master 40 is waterproof to a depth of 100 metres / 330 feet.

The winding crown is fitted with the Triplock triple waterproofness system and protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case.

The chocolate dial with sunray finish is enhanced by pink gold applied hour markers and hands which are treated with Chromalight for long-lasting luminescence in poor light conditions. The sapphire crystal features a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date.

The Yacht-Master 40 is equipped with calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement beating at 28,800 vph and offering 48 hours of power reserve. It features the patented blue Parachrom hairspring which is insensitive to magnetic fields. According to Rolex, this kind of hairspring hairspring offers great stability in the face of temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.
