Want to stand out from the crowd and don't mind paying for the privilege? We've picked 5 customisable gadgets for the connoisseur…
Leica a la carte from £3190
Open up the Leica Configurator and you can start building the M7 or MP of your dreams. Choose the colour, the type of body covering – including ostrich and lizard look, among others – and add any engraving you fancy. Purists that we are, we'd take a black-paint MP with vulcanite covering.
Loewe Individual from £2425
Loewe clearly don't believe in limitations – the side panels on your Individual TV can be made in almost any possible colour. Pick a screen size between 32 and 55 inches, choose a design, change those side panels and even select accompanying speakers. The range of options would be scary if it weren't so fun playing around with them.
Bamford & Sons Rolex Submariner from £9500
If owning a high-end watch isn't enough for you, allow the Bamford & Sons Watch Department to personalise it. They give it a black PVD coating as standard, but the dial and case back are your canvas – and the online tool means you can see how it'll look before you order it. Bamford & Sons also offers the service for the Rolex Milgauss, GMT Master II, Yacht Master, Explorer II and Sea-Dweller Deepsea, as well as the Tag Heuer Monaco.
Nakaya Fountain Pen from US$325
If you still love the feel of ink flowing smoothly and effortlessly across the page, a fountain pen is still your best bet. Nakaya builds every pen to order, so you can customise to your heart's content – choose from the range of standard options, or ask for something more personal. We'd recommend a Urushi lacquered model, so you can enjoy the finish wearing gracefully over time.
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Manufaktur from €210
Customise your cans. Beyerdynamic lets you fiddle with the colour, earpad material, cable type and even the impedance of your new headphones, all from the comfort of your web browser. You can also customise the more expensive DT 880 and DT 990 models if you've contracted advanced audiophilia.
