Revamped Omega Seamaster Bullhead
After years of demand from its devoted fans, Omega has launched a new edition of its cult-favorite 1969 Seamaster watch, nicknamed the Omega Seamaster Bullhead. At my blog, Watch-Insider.com, I preview the new limited edition of this classic watch.
No the icon is here! To meet a long-standing request from Seamaster Bullhead fans, Omega has reissued a limited-edition version of the iconic chronograph from 1969.
While the new model, with its characteristic symmetrical case and bezel, has all of the charm of the original, there are some modifications that give the new Bullhead its own personality. With a case and dial configuration unlike any other Omega; the original 1969 high quality replica Seamaster Bullhead that inspired this wristwatch is among the rarest, most collectable and most recognizable chronographs ever produced. Its winding crown at 12 o’clock was flanked by two chronograph pushers and it was this unique configuration that gave the watch its nickname. There was also another crown at the 6 o’clock position that controlled the internal rotating bezel.
The new model now gives aficionados a chance to own an instant classic.
The Bullhead’s shield-shaped brushed and polished case, the inner revolving bezel and the unusual placement of its chronograph pushers and crowns had made it a favorite among watch enthusiasts.
The pushers on the new aaa grade swiss replica ladymatic Bullhead are still mounted at the top, of course, but the former round pushers on the original watch have now been replaced with flat ones.
The most significant change has been in the movement. The new Bullhead is powered by an automatic Omega Co-Axial calibre 3113 (based on a Frédéric Piguet chronograph caliber), which replaces the manually wound caliber 930 found in the vintage model. No question, the new Omega movement is equipped with a column-wheel chronograph mechanism.
