Zenith and customisation specialist Bamford Watch Department are together launching a 25-piece limited edition, based on the Zenith Heritage 146. It will be available exclusively at Mr Porter.

Mr Porter, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, is pleased to announce it has partnered with Swiss fine-watch manufacturer Zenith and British watch customiser Bamford Watch Department in creating an exclusive 25-piece limited-edition watch, available for sale on 15 November 2018. Mr George Bamford and his team worked alongside Zenith in the design of this watch, which was then entirely developed and produced in-house at Zenith’s Manufacture. Co-creating a project and product of this nature is a first for all three partners in this undertaking.

Based on the Zenith Heritage 146 model, the watch takes cues from several of the brand’s historical design elements. These subtle touches include the tachymeter inspired by a 1971 El Primero, a red seconds hand, aesthetic reminders of a vintage chronograph case and centric sub-dial rings hark back to the old Zenith recorder tell-tales and motion detecting clock.

Its unique “Solar Blue” dial is framed by a 38mm stainless steel case, fitted with a navy blue Alcantara strap featuring white stitching designed to complement the white dial markings. Combining all of these various touchpoints, Zenith, Bamford Watch Department and Mr Porter have created a watch that is both familiar and yet altogether modern and new. Each of these limited-edition watches will feature a special open case-back engraved and individually numbered one to 25.
