Designer Johnny Dowel, who also goes by the moniker of King Nerd has lent his vision to co-create a limited-edition Snoopy timepiece with Bamford London. Speaking on this collaboration, George Bamford, the watch brand’s founder said that King Nerd “has been a dear friend for many years having worked on some of our biggest collaborations together, but we never had the opportunity to work solely, until now.”
The resulting piece features the beloved PEANUTS canine, which also happens to be one of King Nerd’s favorite characters from his childhood. At the center of the watch face stars Snoopy in a sporty persona known as “Tennis Snoopy.” Synonymous with its preceding Snoopy GMT watches, the character’s arms are incorporated as the timepiece’s handset — the hour “arm” now holds a tennis racket, while the minute hand roams free. Snoopy’s partner-in-crime, Woodstock would flutter around his bestie, serving as the watch’s seconds hand.
Boasting a black and fluorescent chartreuse color scheme, the case is crafted from steel, while its caseback is outfitted in titanium and topped with a special Snoopy engraving. Inside the 40mm time-teller beats the Sellita SW330-2 automatic movement, running with 56 hours of power reserve, as well as water resistance of 10 ATM.
Limited to 150 pieces, the watch is now available to purchase at Bamford London’s online store for the price of £1,700 GBP (approximately $2,229 USD).
