Bamford Commando GMT – Review

The self-winding Sellita SW330-2 movement with 25 jewels and a 42 hour power reserve is housed inside the Swiss-made Bamford London GMT. The automatic 24-hour GMT hand’s inbuilt rotating bezel function, inspired by travel, enables users to see an entirely different time zone.


I was delighted to recieve this Bamfrod time-piece, adoring the stylish packaging fro the moment I began to unbox it. The small touches make all the difference. The army green tones, set against a white and black dial strike a real chord and attract the eye effortlessly.


On the wrist, the watch feels sturdy, yet light, with the steel gently riding my skin. It has a 1970s dive watch feel since the internal bezel for the GMT function is rotated by the crown at 10 o’clock. The dial is uncluttered, has little lettering, and has the date window that is a requirement for GMT watches at 3 o’clock.


The new Bamford London Commando GMT and Predator GMT are available for GBP 1,100, which is a reasonable and competitive price, particular for such a striking design. I’d recommend exploring online orders through the Bamford website.
