About the model
Omega is widely recognized for their innovative watch designs.
One of their most eccentric watch designs is the so-called Bullhead originally launched 1969 with the reference ST 146.011.
Housed inside is the manual-wind caliber 930.
The layout of the watch features the chronograph pushers at the top, hence the name Bullhead, for easy accessibility when a car driver’s hands are on a steering wheel.
The crown at 12 o’clock serves to wind the mainspring and set the hours and minutes, while the second crown at 6 o’clock controls the internal rotating bezel..
The Bullhead’s substantial asymmetrical case design combined with its colorful dial is immediately recognizable upon first glance.
