Franck Muller x BWD Popeye Vanguard© Rose Gold


This 25-piece limited edition Popeye-inspired watch, on the 18k rose gold Franck Muller Vanguard© model, is the next adventurous collaboration piece from Bamford Watch Department and Franck Muller.

Beyond the standard, the Franck Muller Vanguard© has a captivating shape with clean and innovative aesthetics. With Popeye on the dial with his distinctively muscled forearms as the hour and minute hands, the aesthetics become even stronger. In addition, Swee’Pea crawls around the dial as the Seconds hand.

The 18k rose gold case compliments the Popeye figure on the dial with the distinctive applique numerals which have been meticulously hand-polished and hand-brushed, coordinating and giving a flowing colour effect to the entire watch. The strap is cleverly integrated inside the case in order to maintain and extend the curved aspect of the timepiece, the result being a stunning and sporty timepiece with a particularly unique design.

The styling and attention to detail is evident throughout this piece and tells a true collaboration story between Bamford Watch Department and Franck Muller. Included in the unique packaging is an original comic strip which tells the tale of Popeye’s travels to London and Geneva, exclusively created to celebrate the collaboration by cartoonist, Randy Millholland.
Available exclusively online from Bamford Watch Department and at select Franck Muller stockists around the world.
