Bamford × Revolution GMT Joe Cool
$ 1,900 Sold Out
Joe Cool first made his debut in the Peanuts comic strip in 1971 and was ostensibly styled after jazz-crazy beatnik college students. In order to transform into Joe Cool, Snoopy dons a pair of dark sunglasses, slips on his red sweater emblazoned with the words “Joe Cool” and adopts a pose of ultimate equanimity by leaning against the wall. And just like that, he is transformed. Because Joe Cool is cool, we mean, really cool.
So when the opportunity arose to collaborate with one of our favourite people in the watch industry, George Bamford, and we started brainstorming over ideas for a watch, it dawned on us that we already knew what we wanted. We had to make a watch featuring Joe Cool.
George first incorporated the legendary Peanuts character, Snoopy, into the charming Bamford GMT watch last year. He chose the GMT watch for our collaborative timepiece as well. The size of the watch at 40mm by 11.7mm fits everyone’s wrist. The stainless steel case has been enhanced with a luminous internal rotating bezel. The Sellita SW330-1 inside with 42 hours of power reserve is reliable. You read the second time zone off the centrally mounted GMT hand and if you want to check another time in another zone, you simply turn the crown at 10 o’clock.
The watch is offered on a black cordura strap. And just because Snoopy would be incomplete without his iconic doghouse, the Bamford × Revolution GMT Joe Cool will be delivered with a box in the shape of Joe Cool's dwelling place, fully lumed out. Yup, you read that right, fully lumed out.

SPECIAL DIAL DESIGN
The dial features a prominent image of Snoopy, whose four-toed paws form the hour and minute hands for the main time display. Snoopy’s buddy Woodstock also makes an appearance on the dial, perched at the tip of the GMT hand.
The watch is equipped with the Sellita SW330-1 that promises 42 hours of power reserve. You read the second time zone off the centrally mounted GMT hand and if you want to check another time in another zone, you simply turn the crown at 10 o’clock.
HELLO JOE COOL!
For the design of the Bamford × Revolution GMT Joe Cool, we wanted to have Joe Cool look like he was just part of an all-white dial in direct light, but as soon as you go into ambient light or darkness, you realise that he is completely incandescent. This also resonated with us because the character Joe Cool prowls jazz clubs at night with his trademark sunglasses on even in the dark, and we thought it a delightful visual riff to have him be fully luminous.
LOVE AND LIGHT
George Bamford took the whole concept a notch up by making Snoopy’s dog house luminous as well! He wanted there to be maximum light emitting from this project because that’s what we all need right now — more light and love in our lives.
