HODINKEE and Bamford London are putting the houndstooth in America’s favorite hound, with a collaborative Peanuts “Joe Preppy” GMT Limited Edition.
The matte brown dial of the 40mm stainless steel GMT is taken over by Snoopy’s bookish alter ego “Joe Preppy” indicating local time in hours and minutes with his arms, while a Woodstock-tipped GMT hand indicates home time against a white and dark brown 24-hour scale on the bidirectional inner rotating bezel, which is controlled by a second crown at the 11 o’clock position.
Joe Preppy is kitted out in tweed check jacket, blue shirt and glasses and stands next to the date window at the three o’clock.
The watch is powered by a Sellita SW330-2 movement offering 42 hours of power reserve and is supplied on a brown cordura strap with white stitching. Each of the 250 limited edition pieces are presented inside a fabric-covered replica of Snoopy’s doghouse emblazoned with the HODINKEE logo.
The Bamford x Peanuts “Joe Preppy” GMT Limited Edition launches today at 11AM ET via HODINKEE, priced $1,850 USD.
Elsewhere in watches, HYPEBEAST asks the experts for their take on Rolex’s new left-handed GMT Master II.
