With his cute puppy eyes, long floppy ears, and always meticulously white fur, Snoopy is probably the most prominent and popular dog in the world. The highly talented beagle, who communicates via dance steps, is known for his diverse cultural interests and sporting activities – from sophisticated painting and world literature (Tolstoy’s War and Peace) to figure skating and surfing (black sunglasses included). Since 1950, Snoopy has been the faithful companion of Charlie Brown in Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts.
To celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Seiko 5 Sports collection, two stainless-steel Limited Editions based on the SKX Sports Style and Field Sports Style models are now being released. The images of the Peanuts character have been adapted from the original cartoon strips in newspapers.
On the dial of the SRPK25K1, Snoopy is a surfer on a custom Seiko 5 Sports design board. The caseback depicts the beagle in action. With a diameter of 38 millimeters, the watch, which is limited to 8,900 pieces, is water resistant to 10 bar. A nice detail is the font on the unidirectional bezel, which is inspired by the original Peanuts font.
Pricing for the Seiko ref. SRPK25K1 is marked at approximately $430 when converted to USD.
The design of the SRPK27K1 shows Snoopy flying through the air as a helicopter, with his beagle ears serving as propellers. His sidekick Woodstock sits on his lap depicted as a pilot.
Limited to 6,500 pieces, the caseback of the watch features a parachute in the original Seiko 5 Sports design. This newcomer measures 36 mm in diameter and is also water resistant to 10 bar. Both watches are driven by Seiko’s 4R36 self-winding caliber and feature Lumibrite on their dials for nighttime legibility. They will be available from June 2023.
Pricing for the Seiko ref. SRPK27K1 is marked at approximately $410 when converted to USD.
