Franck Muller Casablanca watch gets artistic makeover by Bamford Watch Department


Bamford Watch Department has teamed up with modern artist Daniel Arsham and expert engraver Johnny Dowell (also known as King Nerd) to create a 5-piece limited edition Franck Muller Casablanca watch.

The design is built around a signature green of Arsham Studio and the artist’s monogram ‘A’ replacing the dial’s number 4 and then repeated across the dial, used as a balance weight on the seconds hand and engraved into the case by King Nerd.


The engraving creates a sort of jacquard pattern that continues onto an embossed leather strap.

“I have always been inspired by the art world and I was naturally very happy to learn that Daniel Arsham was keen to interpret his art into one of our iconic models, the Casablanca. The result is astonishing and I am delighted with this exciting collaboration with Bamford Watch Department,” says Nicholas Rudaz, COO of Franck Muller.

BWD founder George Bamford adds: “It has been amazing to work with two great friends on the canvas of an iconic watch from a brand which resonates with us all. As always, Daniel Arsham and King Nerd brought something special and unique to the project and I am so proud to work with them on this Franck Muller Casablanca.”

The 39mm stainless steel Bamford Watch Department x Arsham x King Nerd Franck Muller Casablanca Limited Edition (price on application) is on sale today.
