Bamford Watch Department is set to launch ten customized Franck Muller watches from Elton’s personal archive
The limited-edition pieces will feature uniquely customized faces on watches owned by and worn by Sir Elton John himself. Timed around Elton’s first Farewell Yellow Brick Road performance at Madison Square Garden, the watches will be on sale exclusively at Dover Street Market New York on Thursday, October 18th.
The timepieces will range from $11,000 to $22,000 and will be packaged in the Bamford Watch Department box encased in a special acrylic outer box, made specifically for this collection. The Bamford Watch Department will also offer the opportunity to order a customised watch strap, to fit any requested wrist size.
“I am thrilled to work with Bamford Watch Department to put a very personal spin on some of the Franck Muller pieces that I have collected over the years. These ten pieces were handpicked from my archive. The team at Bamford Watch Department have carefully applied the swirl design I love so much onto the faces, and added a custom Elton second hand.” – Elton John
These watches are being offered for sale exclusively at DSM New York where they will be on display from Thursday 18th October.Dover Street Market New York
GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD
Last chance to order the limited-edition t-shirt
If you’re not one of the lucky 10 fans able to purchase one of the amazing watches above, the Ian Beck limited-edition t-shirt and music bundles released to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road are still available to order – but only until this Friday, October 19.
Ian Beck created the original album cover for Goodbye Yellow Brick Road in 1973. He was then commissioned to revisit his artwork for the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. The new artwork features a night sky, representing Elton’s final tour, as well as Elton’s new logo and London’s iconic skyscraper, The Shard.
