IWC Aquatimer Replica will be the official clock of the Olympic Games to take place in Rio de Janeiro. The Villeret, Switzerland-based Swiss watchmaker launched several commemorative models to mark the partnership. The latest model is the Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016 and comes from the collection. This new model is based upon one of the most collectible and iconic historical watches from the brand.IWC Aquatimer Replica The beloved Bullhead watch first appeared around 50 years ago. IWC Aquatimer Replica presents a modernized version with a trapezoidal housing. The novelty is adorned with inscriptions that are reminiscent of its Olympic roots. IWC Aquatimer Replica Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016, a limited edition, is available in 316 pieces.
The name of IWC Aquatimer Replica's newest watch is "Bullhead". This is due to its characteristic irregular shape, which is wider on the upper end. Bullhead was not the model's original name. This was the original name of the model, which was given by collectors who have been fond of it since 1969. The origin of this model is very simple. The housing is made to resemble the head of a tiger.
The nickname became so popular that it was better known than the original name Rallye. The initial moniker was meant to refer to the fact that the watch was designed for rally drivers, and its primary purpose was to measure lap times.
The new version shares the same overall style as its archetype but is very different from it in many different aspects. Let's start with the features that have not changed.Panerai Luminor Gmt Power Reserve Replica We can see that the pushers are still located around the crown, but the shape is different. The case also has an additional crown located on the opposite side of the case. This is used to rotate the bidirectional inner bezel.
The functions of the clock are not changed. The chronograph dials of both the original and descendant are the same, with the 30-minute chrono sub-counter at the top. The counter in the lower portion of the dial displays small seconds.
The "age difference" between these two pieces also led to a number of changes. The new model has a 43 mm width (and the same length, which is not immediately noticeable due to its irregular form), which is 5mm wider than its original. The size difference is not surprising, given the differences in trends between the two periods. However, the supported movement is a very important feature.
