OMEGA Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016 Limited Edition 2

Swiss watch brand OMEGA has launched the Seamaster Bullhead “Rio 2016” Limited Edition to celebrate its association with Olympic Games. This special edition was unveiled in Brazil on 03 Aug 2015, exactly one year before the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

This chronograph timepiece pays an iconic style of 1970’s. The bullhead style was first released in 1969, and was used by rally drivers to time their laps. The name “bullhead” was originally a nickname, coined by watch collectors who admired the shape of the timepiece, and concluded that it indeed looked like the head of a bull. Like its predecessors the Bullhead “Rio 2016” also features a central chronograph seconds hand and a 30-minute recorder at 12H.

The blue leather strap links directly to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo, and features subtle stitching along each side, coloured yellow, green, red and black to remind the iconic Olympic rings. This colour theme is visible on the 60-minutes rotating inner-bezel.

This timepiece houses OMEGA’s exclusive Co-Axial calibre 3113. Engraved with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo on the caseback, this timepiece will be produced in a limited edition of  316 pieces. Price still unavailable.
