POP culture icon Charlie Brown and the gang – Peanuts – made a splash at Farenheit88 in Bukit Bintang to welcome the season of giving.

The Swatch X Peanuts Holiday Special focuses on the message of the season that is time and how you spend it.

Visitors can capture photos at the freshly created Christmas ambient for that Hallmark feel.

After that, they can visit the Swatch store to have their photos printed and proceed with shopping.

All visitors need to do is take a picture with their phone, head over to the photo booth at Swatch, and scan the QR code for instructions on how to print the postcard perfect photo.

For die-hard fans, Dec 2 saw the latest addition to the collection – Chomp – which celebrates the beloved beagle, Snoopy.

Earlier this year, Swatch had also unveiled the Peanuts collection with Snoopy’s loyal and unforgettable friends – Franklin, Lucy and Linus van Pelt, Peppermint Patty, Sally and of course, Charlie Brown.

Known for their vibrant and eclectic designs, the limited-edition Chomp packs the colour punch that Swatch is famous for and draws inspiration from the “Peanuts” comic strip by Charles M. Schulz.

Chomp comes in a specially designed case that doubles as a stainless- steel dog bowl once the watch is removed.Chomp comes in a specially designed case that doubles as a stainless- steel dog bowl once the watch is removed.

With its 41mm case, the New Gent watch features a bio-sourced case and glass, and radiates holiday cheer.

“Comic-esque” black-and-white Peanuts strips run end-to-end on the bracelet, depicting Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy and the rest of the gang building snowmen and having fun sledding in the snow.

Chomp stays true to the surprise element Swatch brings, with a specially designed case that doubles as a stainless-steel dog bowl once the watch is removed.

If red is not your colour, Swatch has six other designs inspired by the Peanuts’ archives.

Some notable ones include the black Grande Bracchetto that shows Snoopy sitting next to the Swiss flag, the Pow Wow arriving in a yellow colourway with Charlie Brown graphics on the dial and strap, and the First Base which showcases the Charlie Brown gang and comes with watch hands in the shape of a catcher glove chasing a baseball.

Featuring Schulz’s iconic characters, the collection is bursting with imagination and nostalgia of great moments from the Peanuts comic strip, delivering fun on one’s wrist that is sure to bring out even the Grinch’s inner child.
