Omega Seamaster Bullhead Co-Axial Chronograph 43 x 43 mm - Omega Bullhead

Omega Seamaster Bullhead Co-Axial Chronograph 43 x 43 mm

Omega Seamaster Bullhead Co-Axial Chronograph 43 x 43 mm has a dial and case configuration unlike no other Omega watches. Inspired by the original 1969 Seamster Bullhead is the most recognisable Omega chronographs produced. This same period in the late 60s were an exciting time for Omega. NASA’s exciting ‘race to the moon’ challenge was in full stride and the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch was born. The full Omega Speedmaster History is still remembered till today. Unlike the Speedmaster, the Seamaster Bullhead was favourite among chronograph fans back then, but with a faint memory on the history.

Thanks to Omega for the rebirth of the 1969 Seamster Bullhead in 2013, the Omega Seamster Bullhead Chronograph is brought to light again. Three models were introduced: 225.12.43.50.04.001 Classic design with 24-hour scale, 225.12.43.50.01.001 Sport chic with a 12 hour scale, and 225.12.43.50.02.001 Rallye with a 60-minute scale. Take a look at the amazing features of Omega Bullhead.

Omega Seamaster Bullhead – Features

While some of the old Seamster Bullhead charm remains, the pushers still remain at the top, but instead of the original round pushers, it has been replaced with the flat ones. This unique feature resembles a bull’s head with horns, and thats how it got it’s name ‘Bullhead’. There is also another crown below the 6 o’clock position that rotates the internal bi-directional rotating bezel.

Perhaps the most significant modification to the Omega Seamster Bullhead is in the movement. The 1969 Seamaster Bullhead is using a manual winding Lemania 930 chronograph, while the new Omega Seamaster Bullhead is fitted with a self-winding Co-Axial 3113 Calibre. This new caliber give the Omega Bullhead a luxury finish and column wheel mechanism, with Co-Axial escapement on three levels and Omega free-sprung balance for better precision, balance, and stability to the movement.

Omega Bullhead 225.12.43.50.04.001 captures the spirit of the original and has a classic design with 24-hour scale. Same as the 1969 Seamaster Bullhead, it has distinctive inner bezel and two sub-dials (one at the 12 o’clock position, and another at 6 o’clock), and a date window at 3 o’clock. The while dial has red accents and it somehow gives contrast against the white dial. Anti-reflective treatment are given on both sides of the sapphire crystal to enhance the readability. The brown leather strap just further gives this classic design a vintage touch.

Give the Omega website a try as it lets you play around their start and restart pusher (at the top left) and reset pusher at the top right. The crown below the 6 o’clock function actuates the rotating bezel.
