Popeye inspires us all to work hard and be persistent, standing up for what’s right and staying strong to the finish. We are delighted to see that following the success and sell out of the 90th Anniversary limited edition Popeye GMT, Bamford London has created the next edition of their Popeye GMT range of watches.
Proudly featured on the dial of the Bamford London dual time GMT, the Popeye character strikes one of his classic poses with his strong arms moving around the dial as the hour and minute hands. The blue and black colours in his outfit are a continued theme throughout the design including the packaging. This unique timepiece is housed in a can, referencing the cans of spinach Popeye famously devours. Paired with a black cordura strap with black stitching, the design pops off the wrist.
This Popeye GMT has all the features of the original Bamford London GMT with a Swiss Made automatic Sellita SW330-2 movement and 24-hour GMT hand function, allowing users to set a home time zone when travelling. This design provides a vibrant splash of cartoon colour on the dial, contrasted against a 316L grade matte black case measuring 40mm in diameter and 11.2mm in thickness.
“I am a life-long fan of Popeye. I was blown away by the 90th anniversary celebrations and the success of the last edition. It always makes me smile when creating a Popeye GMT as Popeye is all about adventure. The Bamford London dual time GMT is inspired by travel and adventure with its 24-hour GMT hand allowing users to view a separate time zone wherever they are.”George Bamford, Founder, Bamford London
