Its been on my writing list for a while now, and they even came up with 2 new models since I first wanted to feature them. British brand Project X Designs is a London-based Rolex ‘customizer’ launched by Daniel Bourn out of a desire to “provide a service to clients who appreciate the history and allure of original manufacturers’ brand name. Their Limited Edition Collection features original Rolex, customized by and produced in runs of just 24 individually numbered watches per design.
Using customized ORIGINAL watch parts only, the Project X Limited Edition designs fuse retro styling, inspired by the iconic sports watches of the past with the latest in carbon coating technology creating a modern twist on a classic design. Once SOLD OUT, each particular design will NOT be repeated.
