Once again Bamford Watch Department teams up once again with the great disruptor Franck Muller and PEANUTS™ to create a 45-piece limited-edition.
The new Franck Muller x BWD Crazy Hours Arctic Snoopy Limited-Edition, is the second time the two watch companies have come together with PEANUTS to create a unique, stylish and super-memorable high-end mechanical wristwatch. The new watch is based on Franck Muller’s iconic Crazy Hours, which shows the hours scattered around the lacquered full-luminous dial, breaking the conventional linear 1 to 12 format used by watchmakers since time immemorial. Snoopy sits centre stage and his arms become the hour and minute hands, the hour hand jumping to the correct hour as it arrives in a “crazy” fashion. Alongside Snoopy is his trusty best friend, Woodstock, who perches on the 3 and 4 (in the 5 and 10 o’clock positions).
“Everyone loves Snoopy. Bamford Watch Department loves Snoopy. Franck Muller loves Snoopy. And I just love seeing Snoopy on the dial of a watch. It puts a massive smile on my face and I can’t wait to hear what people think of this white-hot collaboration. Huge thanks to Franck Muller and Peanuts for going on this journey with us. The result is one of the coolest collaborations we’ve ever done.”George Bamford, Founder, Bamford Watch Department
Franck Muller’s ingenious automatic mechanical movement sits inside the equally iconic Cintrée Curvex case, which this time is cast in lightweight titanium and coated in white PVD. It measures a slender 39.6mm across, making it slightly smaller and more unisex than the previous black Snoopy watch created by Bamford and Franck Muller. It comes on a white hand-sewn nylon strap with a titanium buckle and presented in a Swiss-made, igloo-inspired case in the shape of Snoopy’s kennel, coloured white with black trim.
“Franck Muller is delighted to be collaborating with Bamford for yet another exciting Snoopy project. Snoopy is a strong character who has been part of our lives for generations and is much loved around the world. This new project embodies the DNA of Franck Muller with a smaller titanium Curvex case, our iconic numbers and the fun complication of the Crazy Hours.”Nicholas Rudaz, Chief Executive, Franck Muller
