Snoopy and Woodstock highlight the new Franck Muller x Bamford Watch Department Snoopy Crazy Hours, and the results are even more playful than you’d expect.
While the beloved Charles Schulz canine, whose front paws double as the watch’s eccentric hands, dominates the black dial, London-based Bamford enhances the glee by surrounding Snoopy with luminous concentric circles.
The hour markers are distinctly out of order on Franck Muller’s complicated, clever automatic Crazy Hours movement, which powers one of the Geneva-based watchmaker’s best-known collections. But despite the unorthodox numeral order on the dial, the movement is designed to allow the hour paw to jump to the next marker in the correct time order.
Framed by matte black 39.6mm stainless steel case, Snoopy and Woodstock (who appears twice on the dial) are pictured in black and white on the black dial with grey numerals and text.
This 25-piece limited edition is housed in a colorful box that highlights the Crazy Hours design, though Snoopy and Woodstock also appear on it. Price: 28,000 pounds, or about $37,000.
