For the last 10-plus years, Bamford Watch Department has gained a reputation for expertly customizing Rolex sports watches, making the occasional side foray into brands like Patek Philippe or Audemars Piguet. It's the latter's Royal Oak Openworked that gets the Bamford treatment here, featuring a striking black coating to replace the customary stainless steel finish. While the dial and self-winding movement are left unchanged, the bezel, case and bracelet are coated with Bamford's military-grade titanium, transforming the watch into a sleek, modern piece that maintains its distinctly luxurious aesthetic.
