Bamford has accustomed us for some time to modifications/collaborations in watches from reputable brands, customizing them into unique pieces, often through the inclusion of characters from the fantasy world that arrive to brighten our days, who said to read the time does it have to be a routine and boring exercise? In this field, Bamford has done a remarkable job and developed numerous collaborations with mastery, but the brand has not stopped here and since 2017 has been developing watches with its signature and with the same perfection, whose results always leave us positively surprised. Today is one of those days, with the launch of your new B347 a mono-pusher chronograph.
The new B347 comes in two variants, one in black/white (inverted panda) dial and the other in black/blue dial, but the main signature of these two models is the carbon fiber case, reminiscent of a black-white camo.
Both chronographs come with a 41mm case, crown with the brand’s logo at 3 o’clock, and a flat pusher that controls the entire chronograph function at 2 o’clock engraved with “B347”. The black dials come with an inner ring with a tachymeter scale in white on the reverse panda and in black on black-aqua, two sub-dials, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, and a small second at 9 o’clock with the same color scheme as the inner ring, the black-aqua variant has extra detail, on the 30-minute counter the first 10 minutes are highlighted in blue. Still on the dial, accents and seconds hand in white on the reverse panda and in blue on black-aqua, lastly date aperture at 6 o’clock. The chronographs come with the Caliber Sellita SW 510 MPa automatic movement that offers up to 62 hours of power reserve. The watches are offered with a black rubber strap and, as usual, in the brand, come in special packaging.
Not being limited editions, they are limited production and are available now exclusively at the Hodinkee store, priced at $2,950.
