When you customize high-end watches for a living, you’re not going to be caught driving around in just any showroom-stock automobile. Hence this bespoke Bentley created for George Bamford.
For those who aren’t horological fanatics, George Bamford is heir to the JCB tractor fortune, and the man behind the Bamford Watch Department – a company best known for personalizing Rolexes, particularly in blacked-out finishes.
To match Bamford’s signature style, Bentley’s Mulliner division crafted this one-of-a-kind Mulsanne Speed. The bodywork is painted Beluga black, with blacked-out 21-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels and all the brightwork treated with a Physical Vapor Deposition process to black it out as well.
The treatment continues inside, where the cabin is swathed in black leather, but with a pop of color, as the stitching, piping, and glovebox lining are all done in bright neon blue. There’s even a custom carbon-fiber watch case mounted between the rear seats, which Bamford can take with him when showing off his company’s wares.
