The Omega Seamaster Bullhead is an unusual offering from the famous Swiss watchmaker, it’s based on the now iconic 1969 Seamaster Bullhead and the two watches share an immediately obvious family resemblance.
The original ’69 Bullhead was fitted with a movement that required manual winding and offered twin sub-dials, a date window and a crown at the 6 o’clock position that rotates the bezel. The new Bullhead is fitted with the newer and far more advanced automatic Co-Axial calibre 3113 movement, it offers the same twin sub-dial set up and date window and much to the relief of watch collectors, it also has the classic crown at the 6 o’clock position for modifying the bezel position.
The modern Bullhead will be offered in 3 variations, the classic version with the white face and 24-hour rotating bezel (below left), the sport chic version with a black dial and 12-hour rotating bezel (below right) and the Rallye version with a 60-minute rotating bezel and a perforated strap (below center).
Omega is producing just 669 of each of the 3 versions of the Bullhead, each will be water-resistant to 150 metres (500 feet) and is delivered with a 3-year warranty.
