Tom Ford is officially making his foray into the watch biz, nearly 12 years after launching his eponymous label. Enter Tom Ford Timepieces (it has a nice ring to it, non?), a collaboration with Bedrock Manufacturing Company.
“Watches have long been an obsession of mine and I have been waiting for the perfect moment in our brand development to introduce this category and have also waited for the perfect partner,” Ford said in a press statement. “We have found that in Tom Kartsotis and Bedrock Manufacturing Company. His passion and expertise in the industry are unparalleled and I could not be more excited to embark on this venture with Tom and the team at Bedrock.”
Bedrock Manufacturing Company was founded by Tom Kartsotis, who launched Fossil in 1984. Tom Ford Timepieces will be made in Switzerland, and will launch in limited quantities.
