For past 10 years or so, Bamford Watch Department has specialized in customizing Rolex sports watches -- along with the occasional Patek Philippe or Audemars Piguet model -- featuring a matte black finish originally created with a PVD coating, and now achieved through a patented military-grade titanium coating. The brand's latest treatment development is a far cry from its typically stealthy aesthetic, showcasing a matte gold finish dubbed "Element 79" and shown here on the Rolex Explorer II. See detailed looks below, then head over to the Bamford Watch Department site for additional information.
