In a world where the love for vintage watches seems to appear quite predictable, we always endeavour to step out of this and create something unexpected.
We have previously curated custom bikes with vintage watches, but this time we were fortunate to finally source the right watch for this long awaited project.
Using the perfect vintage Rolex Submariner as inspiration, we have customised a 1980s NOS ALAN Record carbon framed bike to create an outstanding curated package for you.
The 1970 Rolex ‘Red’ Submariner is already a standalone gem and very rare to find these days, but inspiring the custom build bike, in all its details, the final package is an absolutely ONE OFF PROJECT.
The frame reminded us immediately of the look and feel of a cool vintage Rolex Submariner, from an era where tool watches were still professional tools for divers, the military and a key aspect of the adventurous lifestyle. Back then, diving was still a dangerous occupation and the equipment including suits, scuba tanks and masks were still in their early experimental days.
So we took these style elements and feel to create this amazing curated package ‘From Road to Reef’ to take the legacy of the past into a modern package;Adding beautiful custom touches to the bike, including a Brooks saddle which emotes all the feeling of a vintage diving suit and the cream elements on the wheels and handlebar just adds this warmth and style to the bike and can also be found on indexes of the watch. And of course the matching frame color with the dial as well as the steel case of the watch being repeated with the fog. Icing on the cake; of course, the red-brake-line adds just that last bit of detail…less is more and a perfect match to the red line on the Submariner dial.
We are passionate about vintage watches. When you buy a vintage timepiece you buy into a piece of history as well. Most watches we sell have decades of stories to tell. By collecting and wearing such a watch you simply add your story and then pass it on again. There is no object we can feel such a deep connection with. We are really excited to connect you with your next watch.
At Bulang and Sons we have sold hundreds of watches over the years. We are a small team of experienced collectors and connoisseurs, part of an extensive global network of buyers and sellers. We are really proud of the great reputation we have for dealing only with high quality, high standard watches. We have one simply rule: we only buy and sell watches we want to own ourselves. And yes, we are still collectors too.
We know how intense the search for a specific vintage watch can be. Once you find it at Bulang and Sons, we want to make things easy, safe and fast for you. Therefore we offer the most comprehensive return policy and warranty; you will not find a safer place on the internet to buy a vintage watch.
We only offer individual timepieces and have a limited collection of the very finest vintage watches out there. The kind of quality we look for is rare to find, so we are very proud of every single watch in our shop.
It must be pretty clear by now, that we are not your average watch dealer. That is why we don’t sell our watches with a simple ‘Add to cart’ button and often communicate the price on request. We want to get in touch with you personally, to give you the best experience possible and to make sure you find the vintage watch that is right for you. Whether you’re building a collection or out to find that one unique timepiece, we’re here to help. If there is anything you would like to ask, please do. Connecting with other watch lovers is the greatest thing about working at Bulang and Sons.
