Watch customization expert Bamford and Swedish industrial design company Black Badger work together to present a special dial color (and material) in the most innovative way, launching BWD X Badgerworks TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 5 Tropical Coffee watch replica.
For Bamford, creating an exclusive tropical dial is very important, but not in a simple industrial way. George Bamford plans to produce a series of unique timepieces, so that each one can clearly show a unique personality. At the same time, George Bamford also favored the concept of using renewable resources for dial manufacturing, which gave birth to the idea of using roasted and ground coffee to give Calera the main color of the TAG Heuer Carrera watch replica.
To achieve this specific goal, Bamford once again collaborated with Gothenburg Industrial Design Company Black Badger, Bamford Watch Department and Badgerworks have once again elected the TAG Heuer Carrera replica as their canvas, this time moving on from their previous use of Fordite to an even more unexpected material for its dial construction: ground coffee. The organic material is sourced from Göteborg’s Cafe da Matteo, a renowned coffee shop in Sweden, and then made into blank dials that are hand-finished before assembly.
BWD X Badgerworks TAG Heuer Carrera “Tropical” Dial
The “tropical” dials and their distinctive “chocolate” colors represent a rather important chapter in TAG Heuer watch fake collecting. The name refers to the color of the dial, usually a dark-to-light brown hue which is the product of the degradation of the tint of the dial over time, mostly caused by sunlight and air. They are a much discussed and appreciated argument among collectors.
Consequently, brown dials are an acquired taste and are mostly associated with vintage watches and not necessarily with new pieces. However, brown is becoming more and more common in new watchmaking. It is precisely within the independent creators where we are beginning to find fascinating executions of this idea, where the warmth and elegance of brown become an unexpected canvas for time telling.
“It’s amazing to be working with the awesome James Thompson at Black Badger on our second collaboration,” says George Bamford, founder of BWD. “I’ve always wanted to create a wonderful tropical dial but in a modern way, and I think this recycled coffee dial really has an authentic tropical vibe to it. Accentuated inside the TAG Heuer Carrera 41 mm steel watch fake this really works well together”.
James Thompson aka Black Badger also chimed in: “For me this is a natural progression for the BWD Badgerworks project. In the same way that we previously used the Fordite material, we are exploring materials outside of the traditional realm of watchmaking. Few materials are as familiar both in appearance and experience as coffee. Economies are built on it, wars are fought over it, history is tied to it. As a planet over 2 billion cups are consumed every day.”
The Caliber 5 Movement
Inside each “aromatic” TAG Heuer Carrera timepiece replica beats the Caliber 5 automatic caliber. The 41 mm steel case is accompanied by a brown leather strap that nicely coordinates with this new “tropical” dial concept. The special edition BWD X Badgerworks TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 with Tropical Coffee Dial watch replica will be limited to just 20 units and retailing for £5,500 GBP (roughly $6,737 USD).
