    Fun looking watch but a bit heavy on the gimmicks. More a promotion watch kinda feel.

    Oh my, I'm quite intrigued by this!

    A Bamford x Ruf/(Highsnobiety???) x TAG Heuer, what might this look like?!

    Me too, I am thinking maybe a Bamford take on the 44mm Carrera.

    Blimey, this could be very good.
    Came very close to buying that yellow RUF Nezumi which sold out in minutes.
    This will be a very different price point though. I’m actually hoping for an F1 of sorts ;)
    If it’s based on the green SCR I don’t know how I will be able to resist.

    Well, the color seems right. :whistling:

    I like it too, the dial looks better without the seconds hand on the bottom. It's interesting that they chose a fabric velcro strap though, I'd still favor a racing rally strap on a Carrera.

    Case back:

    Kinda annoys me that Bamford told me they couldn't remove the running seconds... now here we are :cautious:

    Looks OK, would have looked better with a smaller (or no) Ruf logo. But hopefully this at least means potentially more 2-register H02 options to come.

    I thought that one was sold out like in one day, even faster than the first G-shock he did

    I received the mail last night. Perhaps there were a few ones left….

    Can’t say this is a must have for me, fortunately really ;)
    Can’t pinpoint what it is yet. Perhaps their choice for the Carrera and subsequent price doesn’t really suit the project. The execution is sorta ok. Running seconds delete is the only real up for me. A bit heavy on the RUF co-branding as well, more promotion than balance.
    I prefer Aloisa’s Orfina Porsche Design chrono :cool:

    It looks better with the leather strap. Early shots only showed the NATO, but it comes with both straps.

    I would've been perfectly happy with this one. :)

    Why didn't they base the strap on that 'lovely' brown leather interior?

    That would've been much nicer! But perhaps a brown rally strap is too common looking for a Bamford?

    I really liked their mechanical watch in blue. I just have a hard time with getting a micro brand, but it’s swaying me.
