Popeye the sailor is a hero in his own world. Always found with a pipe in his mouth, this comic character finds a way out of hopeless situations by munching on to a can full of spinach. But now he has found a place to rest on your wrist too. Dr. Romanelli has teamed up with Bamford Watch Department to customize a Rolex that features Popeye. It just hurts to know that the Popeye Yachtmaster Rolex Watch worth $32,400 is out of stock as of yet.
Along with Popeye the Sailor, Bamford Watch Department has recruited one more iconic military characters, the Beetle Bailey, to serve as the inspiration for an exclusive Americana and military-themed watch collection. The back of each watch will be engraved with the Dr. Romanelli logo and numbered edition. Each watch comes with a custom comic strip and, through an innovative packaging concept, the collection stays true to the classic properties and celebrates both the Army and Navy.
