Bamford Snoopy Inspires Franck Muller Crazy Hours

Bamford Snoopy Inspires Franck Muller Crazy Hours

This Snoopy-inspired watch, on the famous Franck Muller Crazy Hours model, is full of unique characteristics. As the name Crazy Hours suggests, the hour numerals on the dial are not in the traditional order. In fact, most of this watch is untraditional in the most playful and eye-catching way.

Featuring Snoopy on the dial, the complex and clever mechanical movement which allows the hour hand to jump to the next in the correct order, is further highlighted with Snoopy’s arms as the hour and minutes hands. On a matte black stainless steel case, Snoopy and Woodstock are bold to the eye in black and white on a black dial with grey numerals and text. Paired with a black hand-sewn fabric strap, every part of this design has been carefully, and playfully, designed.

“Working on the Franck Muller Crazy Hours watch has been so much fun. I cannot stop smiling when I look at this watch as there are so many cool elements to it. Adding Snoopy to this crazy dial and using his arms to point to the numerals is amazing. I love using the iconic concentric circular pattern around Snoopy, and what takes this watch to the next level is the luminous effect used on the dial. I also love having Woodstock in wonderful places throughout this piece. It really is a culmination of so many things I adore.”
