I like customization as much as the next man; I'm down with high-tech coatings, but Bamford have taken a classic diver and (for want of a better word) naused it up!

Introducing the new Bamford Submariner Black Ops. Its 40mm Stainless steel case has been given BWD’s signature matte black military grade Titanium coating that has been developed over several years in what BWD say is a ''secure'' facility! Woo!

BWD's military grade Titanium coating gives the case a smooth, highly scratch and chip resistant finish that should be capable of surviving pretty much anything you care to throw at it. No, doubt!

It features a uniquely crafted reversed raised black ceramic bezel with an entirely matte black finish, and a custom sandwich dial using SuperLuminova (strontium aluminate – based on non-radioactive and nontoxic photo-luminescence) giving a unique luminous design at night.

Its black hands featuring black-colored SuperLuminova creating a green glow at night to match the dial. Black lume is pretty cool but it only produces a very faint glow.

The black and matte black coated Black Ops Submariner is available in a number of colors. It is a Limited Edition of just 25 pieces. Unfortunately I have no word on pricing but it'll likely make you spit your coffee out!

Not digging the above? Check out something really nice from Bamford, the Heritage MILSUB ;)
