Description

Inspired by the spirit of the Olympic Games, OMEGA created the Seamaster Bullhead Rio - a sporty timepiece that makes use of the colours of the five Olympic rings.

This model, of which only 316 pieces will be produced, features a white dial with a blue 60-minute scale on an inner rotating bezel. There is a 30-minute recorder at 12 o'clock, a small seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock and a date window at 3 o'clock. The screw-in caseback is stamped with the logo of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The eye-catching timepiece is presented on a blue leather strap with black, yellow, green and red stitching. At the heart of the Seamaster Bullhead Rio is the OMEGA calibre 3113.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is certainly the most conventional of watchmaking materials for outer craftsmanship, and offers beauty, strength and affordability. OMEGA uses 316L stainless steel. Known for its corrosion-resistance and high lustre after polishing, this material is often the ideal choice for watches in both daily-use and high-stress situations such as diving and adventure.

Sapphire Crystal

To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.
