  • Catalogue Essay

    The present wristwatch is a remarkable example of Bamford-modified Daytona not only because of its condition, but especially because of its original owner: Eric “Slowhand” Clapton.
    Mr Clapton is widely regarded not only as one of the most influential artists of all time, but also as one of the most demanding and refined watch connoisseurs. His spectacular collection is known to span between modern (usually bespoken) timepieces, and some of the most important vintage wristwatches, for example he has been the owner of the only privately-owned Patek Philippe 2499 in platinum.
