Bamford Watch Department is not going to let Fossil have all the fun with Karl Lagerfeld, they have started their own bromance with the fashion guru. Bamford Watch Department has given the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss, an all-time favorite with collectors and fans alike the Lagerfeld treatment.
The Milgauss Bamford version in matte black features a Lagerfeld silhouette at 7 o’clock and his signature across the dial between 7 and 5 o’clock.
Introduced in 1956 with an antimagnetic feature, the Milgauss was regarded as a suitable timepiece for workers at power plants and labs. This is around the same time a young Lagerfeld started his fashion career at Balmain.
Available for purchase since Tuesday at Karl Lagerfeld flagship boutiques in Paris and Munich, custom timepiece comes with a hefty price tag of € 19,000 (approx. $25,800).
