In an exciting repeat collaboration, Land Rover and the Bamford Watch Department have come together once again to create a timepiece that embodies the spirit of adventure. The Bamford x Land Rover LR002 Limited Edition Watch takes inspiration from the original LR001 and adds a touch of darkness and drama to this iconic design.
The LR002 draws its aesthetic cues from military watches, incorporating elements that make it both rugged and suitable for everyday wear. Just like the Land Rover Defender that served as its muse, this watch is ready to accompany you on all your thrilling escapades.
The most striking feature of the LR002 is its blacked-out titanium case, coated with DLC for added durability. The contrasting white lume ensures optimal readability day or night, while the black strap completes the dark and captivating theme. The watch name and water resistance of 100 meters are elegantly displayed on the dial in Bamford blue.
Inside the LR002 ticks the reliable Sellita SW-2001B automatic movement, boasting a power reserve of 41 hours. With its 40mm x 13.25mm dimensions, this timepiece falls within the popular sizing range, making it suitable for most wrists. Inspired by military tradition, the LR002 features fixed bars instead of traditional spring bar lugs, ensuring a secure fit when paired with a NATO-style strap.
The backstory of this watch collaboration is equally fascinating. The original LR001, based on the legendary Land Rover Defender, was a limited run of 100 watches that sold out quickly, sparking demand for a follow-up. The LR002 delivers with its blacked-out version, adding contrast and drama to the already iconic design.
Limited to only 100 examples, and priced at $1,700, the Bamford x Land Rover LR002 Limited Edition Watch is a testament to the rugged nature of the Land Rover Defender, seamlessly blending it with the timeless charm of a military field watch. Grab one, buckle up in your Land Rover, and embark on your next thrilling adventure.
