This year’s 70th anniversary of Charles Schulz’s classic Peanuts comic strip was always likely to spawn a slew of Snoopy watches, and so it has proved with Omega and now Bamford London unveiling timepieces with the world’s most beloved beagle in the same week.
Bamford has used its GMT watch as the canvas for a limited edition pair of steel Snoopy watches, each a numbered edition from 1 to 70.
One, in black and yellow, has Superhero Snoopy wearing a cape with his arms point to hours and minutes while his twittering sidekick Woodstock flies around the dial to show the second time zone displayed on a 24 hour bezel.
The second is entirely beagle-colored black and white apart from Woodstock in yellow again doing the rounds on the GMT marker hand.
They use an automatic Sellita SW330-1 movement.
“Teaming up with an iconic company like Bamford is such a special way to celebrate our 70th anniversary” says Roz Nowicki, Executive Vice President of Peanuts Worldwide. “We are honoured to see our beloved characters on these time pieces.”
George Bamford, owner of Bamford London adds: “I have been the biggest fan of Peanuts and Snoopy for the longest time. These designs were chosen because of the timelessness and playfulness of Snoopy and Woodstock. The chance to work with Charles Schulz’s creation and join the 70th anniversary celebrations was too important to pass up. I thought our GMT was the perfect model to celebrate Snoopy with its automatic 24–hour GMT function, able to use wherever you are. I hope fans enjoy wearing it as much as I do.”
