In the world of watches, we are very familiar with the concept of a limited-edition. These offer something special or different in the design, and numbers are limited to keep it exclusive. With the Nomadic Watches Black Shamrock, though, it’s something that I’ve not quite seen before. Only 33 pieces are being made available – one per day, at 7PM GMT.

What is this watch?

At its core, the Nomadic Watches Black Shamrock is based on the Nomadic Watches Marai 401. This looks to be a Rolex/Tudor Homage – albeit with a different handset. In the non-LE versions, you’ve got a variety of colors available, with the dial and bezel insert coordinated. Here, though, things get a little different.

What’s different about the Nomadic Watches Black Shamrock?

For one, this limited edition offers a different color combination. You get a deep black dial paired with a dark green bezel insert. Flip the watch over, and you’ll see a very custom rotor. The rotor takes the shape of a shamrock, further cementing just when this limited edition was released.

Isn’t this a bit too much St. Patrick’s Day?

I suppose that depends on your point of view. That said, Nomadic Watches is based in Belfast, so if there’s going to be a watch brand laying claim to the day in this manner, we say they’re the ones. If you want to get your own, you’ll need to be quick on the uptake. Going for $1,350, one is released per day at 7PM GMT time, only at
