50-piece limited edition watch created in collaboration with King Features
Paying homage to the beloved sailor’s first appearance in 1929, this delightfully whimsical reworking on the Bamford London GMT celebrates the 90th anniversary of the iconic Popeye.
Created in partnership with Hearst-owned King Features, this unique timepiece features an eye-catching navy and white colour scheme that commemorates Popeye’s time in the Navy before he joined the Coast Guard in 1937.
George Bamford, owner of Bamford London says, “I have been the biggest fan of Popeye for the longest time and to work with King Features to create this exclusive GMT watch in celebration of Popeye’s 90thanniversary is a true honour. I thought our GMT was the perfect model to celebrate our favourite sailor. With its automatic 24–hour GMT function, able to use wherever you are, the two are perfect companions.”
This Popeye GMT has all the features of the original Bamford London GMT with a Swiss Made automatic Sellita SW330-1 movement and 24-hour GMT hand function, allowing users to set a home time zone when travelling. The design provides a vibrant splash of cartoon colour on the dial, contrasted against a 316L grade stainless steel case measuring 40mm in diameter and 11.2mm in thickness. Continuing the colour scheme, this piece is available on a navy and white canvas strap.
This 50-piece limited edition Popeye GMT is available directly from Bamford London and their global partners while stocks last. The Bamford London GMT Popeye watch has an RRP of £1,500 (including VAT).
