As the Olympic Games of Rio 2016 draw closer, Omega has launched the new Seamster Bullhead Rio Limited Edition. This watch is a celebration of heritage, precision, and sporting excellence. As a part of Omega’s Olympic collection watches, the Bullhead ‘Rio 2016′ is sure to get a lot of attention.
The watch is sure to set pulses racing with its unique style and design. The blue leather strap links directly to the Rio 2016 Games logo and features subtle stitching along each side, coloured yellow, green, red and black to remind consumers of the iconic Olympic rings.
The colour theme is continued on the 60 minute rotating inner-bezel, serving as a meaningful reminder of the unity and harmony that the Olympic rings signify. The case itself is linked to history and sport. This style was first introduced in the year 1969, and was used by rally drivers to time their laps.
The spirit of speed has now evolved to exemplify OMEGA’s continued association as the official time keeper for the Olympic games. The watch also comes with other sophisticated features like a central chronograph seconds hand and a 30 minute recorder at 12H. The name ‘Bullhead’ was originally a nickname coined by the watch collectors who admired the shape of the timepiece.
The Rio Bullhead 2016 is being released exactly one year before the Olympic Games of 2016 begin. Only 316 copies of this remarkable masterpiece will be made. With such history and anticipation surrounding this new product, it is sure to quickly become a collector’s item.
