Bamford Watch Department + Black Badger — Zenith El Primero Superconductor

Bamford Watch Department + Black Badger

Zenith El Primero Superconductor

We’re told time is money and that it flies, and whilst most of us have enjoyed a little more of the former than the latter of late, we’ve been questioning how to celebrate the return to the new future, until now.


The genius of George Bamford, founder of Bamford Watch Department has launched the BWD X BB Zenith El Primero Superconductor in collaboration with Black Badger, the limited-edition timepiece everyone is talking about. 

Crafted in the same materials used in nuclear reactors and particle accelerators, the Superconductor exudes futuristic flex with striking honeycomb etching, compounded by specialist acid bathing that gives it what Bamford is calling, ‘dystopian future decay’.

The contrasting silver and copper accents throughout, compliment this delectable timepiece with clear personality traits oozing through from James Thompson’s Black Badger and hints of its previous MB&F HMX editions, from which the superconductor materials have become the norm. 


The continued partnership with Swiss brand Zenith watches also allows Bamford to the push boundaries further than its customizations and create definitively memorable editions. Check out @bamfordwatchdepartment for an Instagram live on Wednesday 19th August at 14:00 BST, when Thompson and Bamford will host a horological-hour talking all things superconductor.

This is the definition of time well spent during lockdown, literally.


Available to order online from 17th August 2020, at £14,500
