In 2016 the city of Rio, Brazil, will become a location of universal importance – it was announced as a capital of next Olympic Games. In honour of this event, Swiss watch brand Omega presents a new model of limited release.
Meet Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016. The number of models available for purchase is only 316. This figure symbolizes the year of Olympic Games itself, and the fact that golf was included into its program for the third time. The most noticeable feature of Bullhead Rio 2016 (and all its forerunners as well) is a 30-minutes recorder in the position of twelve hours. Moreover, it has a specific coaxial caliber 3113 Omega.
But the wristwatch’s design is still the first thing you pay attention to when looking at it. And this Seamaster is not an exception. The case has a legendary unusual shape, which gave the name to this model –Bullhead. The leather strap has exactly the same color as the logo of Rio Olympic Games. Stitches are done with black, red, green and yellow threads. Support holder has the same shades. And, obviously, there is a reason behind such a design – Olympic rings have the same colors. Besides carefully considered color range, this timepiece has one more unique distinction. If you turn Omega Bullhead 2016 over, you will see the Olympic Games logo on its back cover.
Omega is an official timekeeper of the Games, and that explains such an impressive release. And thanks to its design and limited number of watches on offer, Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016 will definitely become a desirable timepiece for any collector or connoisseur of horology.
