Bamford & Sons Limited Edition Rolex
Bamford's wares are available Stateside from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, but this limited edition timepiece can only be ordered direct from the company's own UK store (they'll ship worldwide); it costs £14,995, or just over $30,000. Bamford previously customized a cool Rolex Submariner on a black leather strap, but the Daytona is in a class by itself.
If you happen to be traveling to London it's well worth a visit to their posh shop in Sloane Square to browse the full B&S range which is an artful combination of "innovation and heritage" (as they put it), featuring everything from cashmere blankets to limited edition sterling silver iPods. There's also an in-store café run by Daylesford Organic, featuring fresh produce from the aristocratic Bamford family's English country estates -- because you can't help but feel peckish after all that shopping.
