British jeweler and luxury goods house Asprey has partnered with Bamford Watch Department to create a capsule collection of customized Rolex watches with Bamford’s signature black PVD treatment. The extremely limited collection is only available through Asprey’s New Bond Street boutique and will include 12 Daytona, 25 Submariner & 50 Milguass watches, priced from £15,000 to £24,000.
 

 

Asprey has a history of selling customized Rolex watches dating back to the 1970’s when the government of Oman ordered a series of customized ‘Omani’ dial Rolex watches as gifts for British SAS soldiers who helped to suppress the Dhofar Rebellion between 1970-1976. The Rolex Omani Sea-Dwellers were commissioned by the Sultan of Oman through Asprey in London. These extremely rare vintage Rolex watches feature the ‘Spade of Oman’ printed on the dial with the Asprey imprint on the back.
