Flipping the script on the traditional flip clock

Back in the 70′s, before telling time went digital, there was a vintage novelty called the flip clock.

A continuation of the Beetle Bailey-inspired watch collab

As a followup to the previous collaborations, namely one with a watch face getting muscle-armed by Popeye, Dr. Romanelli and Bamford Watch Department have joined forces yet again to create a cartoon-inspired timepiece. With this version of the Deepsea model, bad-guy Brutus is clobbering the military grade titanium coated chronograph. This highly limited run of only 20 pieces comes with two-year [...]
