    Correct. The linked article confirms the theme.

    Yeah; a British racing green, or emerald green would be amazing with that same overall design.

    The calibre 5 is a beautifully balanced, understated piece. I pretty much like every detail and love how it comes to life on the wrist, perfectly reflecting daylight on the hour markers.
    It seems they don't have enough filters at Bamford before signing off on or even starting on a project. "Let's make a dial that looks like a basketball". Abomination fatigue starting to kick in. I feel a Wimbledon LE coming up next year.

    Well, that is OK, but then they have stuck to the tried and tested red and black so it would work, wouldn't it :whistling:.

    Now that’s more like it. Lot more flair about it than most of the other BWD (re)designs.

    I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but those hands look like plastic.

    Agreed, not horrible for once! However, once again red and black has proven to be the safe combination.

    Slightly off topic, but Bamford have been teasing a new watch that will launch today, This will be the second "Bamford" own design watch after the Mayfair. I've been fortunate to see it...and I think it's a fantastic looking watch at a very reasonable price..so much so that I've ordered one.

    I'll post a photo of the new model after the official launch, but I think George and the team have done a great job on this one.
