Snuggle up to a cosy collection by Swatch, who have rounded up the Peanuts gang, once again, in their latest holiday collaboration. Adding on to the existing line of six watches, launched earlier in November, this new drop allows you to create your own personalised Swatch X You watches with three digital designs that feature the lovable, enduring characters of Charles M. Schulz, most notably pop culture icons such as Snoopy, Woodstock, and good ol’ Charlie Brown.
Here’s a look at both collections —
NEW: Swatch X You — Peanuts edition
Similar to their National Day launch this year, Swatch X You is an innovative concept that invites you to create your own customised timepiece. Over at the Swatch website, you get to select a section of the canvas you’d like to feature on the watch, by moving left, right, up, down, or even rotating the canvas so your favourite elements fall within the watch template.
You may also select your choice of mechanism and indexes, or add a personal message on the back of the case, before picking it up at the Swatch store or having your watch delivered to your home.
For Swatch x Peanuts, the brand has specially commissioned digital works that celebrate Snoopy and the Peanuts gang, of three joyful canvases that bring out the imaginative spirit of the original comic strips.
Swatch X you special edition peanuts digital designs, $186 per watch. available ONLINE for a limited time only.
DROP 1: Swatch x Peanuts
An earlier drop in November sees the Peanuts characters all over classic Gent and New Gent Swatch models, which take plenty of inspiration from original Peanuts comic strips. For the six designs in this Swatch x Peanuts collection, you’ve got bright colours and witty details those familiar with the watch brand would love to discover — a baseball and catcher glove can be found on the First Base watch hands, for instance.
The Peanuts logo is seen across the loops of the silicone bracelet watches as well, while their glass and cases are made from biosourced materials, surely a nod to their commitment towards sustainability.
If you like to see the Peanuts crew all huddled together, go for Smak!, a retro-style New Gent watch that features a complete comic strip from the 60s; First Base, on the other hand, gathers the gang together with a cute homage to your friendly neighbourhood baseball team.
Fans of Lucy’s spunky personality would like Klunk!, a dynamic design in red and blue, while Charlie Brown’s also given his own design in a yellow-themed piece that showcases his many mishaps and guises. Of course, popular character Snoopy gets his own watches too — Grande Bracchetto captures his many alter egos, while HeeHeeHee is a more minimalist blue design that also features a puzzled Woodstock.
