Bamford Watch Department’s obsession with Snoopy has translated into a monochrome 25-piece limited edition transformation of Franck Muller’s Crazy Hours.
The world’s most famous beagle graces the dial with his arms forming the hour and minute hands, but because this is a Crazy Hours, the hour hand progresses in an erratic jumping manner, keeping track of out-of-sequence hour marker arrangement. Snoopy is also surrounded by concentric luminous loops, which shine a spotlight on the dog after hours.
Woodstock appears on the dial twice, perched on the 10 and 6 o’clock numerals.
“It’s been a lot of fun working on the Franck Muller Crazy Hours watch,” says George Bamford, founder of Bamford Watch Department. “I can’t stop smiling when I look at this watch because it has so many cool features.” It’s incredible to see Snoopy on this crazy dial, pointing to the numerals with his arms. “I love using the iconic concentric circular pattern around Snoopy, and the luminous effect used on the dial takes this watch to the next level.”
The case is made of matte black coated stainless steel, and the watch is held together by a black fabric strap.
The Franck Muller x BWD Crazy Hours Snoopy is now available for £28,000 GBP (approximately $37,100 USD) from Bamford Watch Department.
