Those interested in the sometimes wacky world of after-market modified Rolex replica watches should take note of this new limited edition Bamford Watch Department x The Rodnik Band Snoopy Rolex Datejust replica watch. Once again, Bamford is working with fashion label The Rodnik Band on a Charles Schulz’s Peanuts-inspired watch, with both Snoopy and Woodstock on the dial this time.
This newest Bamford Watch Department (BWD) x The Rodnik Band Snoopy watch uses a base Rolex Datejust replica watch(36mm wide), while their previous collaboration used a modified and black-colored Rolex Milgauss with Snoopy on the dial. That Bamford x The Rodnik Band Snoopy Customized Rolex Datejust limited edition replica watch came in a 40mm-wide case with Snoopy on the dial wearing sunglasses. For this newest watch, we have a more celebratory Snoopy and Woodstock the bird at the end of the seconds hand against a black face.
Speaking of hands, on this Bamford Watch Department x The Rodnik Band Snoopy customized Rolex Datejust replica watch, they are quite short in the scheme of proper watch dial dimensions. Having said that, they are designed to be proportional to Snoopy’s body. I am pretty sure very few people are going to be inclined to get the Bamford Watch Department x The Rodnik Band Snoopy customized Rolex replica watch because of its tendency to be a precise horological instrument.
Interestingly, you’ll find only The Rodnik Bands’ logo on the dial of the Bamford x The Rodnik Band Snoopy Customized Rolex Datejust replica watch. On most Bamford Watch Department timepieces, they maintain the Rolex logo and add their own over the text near the bottom of the dial. Here, we clearly have a totally custom dial including the hands, so this makes sense.
In addition to the customized Snoopy and Woodstock dial, Bamford customizes the case of the Rolex Datejust replica watch to give it a matte-finish versus the typically polished and brushes surfaces. This changes the character of the watch overall, but also helps the colors pop a bit more. I do appreciate how it is more than just a custom dial.
