By TLex It’s official; Omega have launched the BULLHEAD Rio 2016 Limited Edition with its iconic design and colors inspired by the 5 Olympic rings at a special OMEGA event in the Olympic host city of Rio.
At first glance, the Bullhead is instantly recognizable by its dual chrono-pushers that are sat at the top of the case like a bull’s horns. Then the Olympic theme takes over with a blue leather strap linking directly to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo, and subtle contrasting stitching along each side in yellow, green, red and black echoing the iconic Olympic rings.
The Olympic color theme is carried onto the 60-minutes rotating inner-bezel.
Like its predecessors the Bullhead Rio 2016 LE also features a central chrono seconds hand and a 30-minute recorder at 12 o’clock.
The Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016 Limited Edition is being released exactly one year before the Olympic Games is due to get underway. Only 316 of these pieces will be made available. There’s one in my local Omega Boutique in Taipei 101 and I have to say the watch looks stunning.
Further features include power from OMEGA's exclusive Co-Axial caliber 3113, and stamped with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo on its caseback.
