In 1950 Charles M. Schulz released Peanuts, an American comic strip that would become one of the most iconic comic strips in the world and that lasted until 2000 totaling almost 18,000 published stories. Among the main characters are Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Woodstock, Lucy among many others who gave life to countless adventures, which were translated into childhood concerns with an adult realism, which linger with nostalgia in the memory of many generations until today.
The new collaboration between Swatch and Peanuts results in a collection of six watches that aims to bring back childhood memories for many of us through the Peanuts gang.
Each of the six watches features unique details.
Thus, the “Grande Bracchetto” and “Klunk” models are offered with a “glass” and a case made from biological materials. The “Grande Bracchetto” in black comes with Snoopy on the dial leaning against his dog house and next to the Swiss flag, also appearing on the bracelet in several adventures. “Klunk”, on the other hand, is presented in red with Lucy on the dial swinging and kicking the hour numbers, also appearing on the bracelet in numerous situations.
The “Hee Hee Hee” model is presented in the Maxi version in blue, featuring Snoopy dancing on the dial and bracelet, and the confusing Woodstock also on the bracelet.
The star of the “Pow Wow” model is the unmistakable Charlie Brown who appears skateboarding on the bright yellow dial that extends to the bracelet where we once again see Charlie Brown in his many baseball mishaps and some of his disguises.
The “Smak” model presents itself as the Peanuts retro version, offering a complete comic story of these characters that extends from the bracelet to the dial.
Finally, the “First Base” model that brings together the entire “gang” as the neighborhood baseball team and which displays the precious detail of the glove chasing the ball at the tip of the hour and minute hands.
All watches feature the Peanuts logo on the loop and are offered in special packaging, the watches are now available in official Peanuts stores and retailers with prices starting at € 80.
