Known for many years as the finest customisation team in their field, Bamford Watch Department’s work has always been widely sought after and their expertise applied to a number of 'secret' projects. One such project was from none other than Mickey Mouse’s home: Disney. A sketch of the world’s most famous Mouse, sporting his iconic gloves, indicates the time, set against a 3D dial repeating his famous silhouette. What is intriguing is that every external reference to Rolex is removed, including the Coronets on the crown and clasp. Why the Disney team would insist on erasing any sign of 'The Crown' (whilst also demanding a Rolex watch as its canvas) we will likely never truly know, but can happily guess. The project never fully came to fruition, so this example in its cool grey MGTC stands as a powerful 'what might have been'. Presented with its special presentation box that lights up with the famous 'ears' motif when pressed, this is one of the coolest 'for your eyes only' projects we've handled.
