When you look at the prices being asked on eBay and at watch shops for vintage Citizen Bullheads, you realise that there is a lot to be said for a new model. Yes, solar powered cell rather than automatic, but you have a brand new watch, looks fanatastic and will easily last a decade before the solar cell gives up the ghost.
The latest model on the Citizen UK website is available in this racing green colour for £695. We think that’s pretty decent. One detail that stands out is the solar power reserve gauge, which is really motorsport themed. Loving that touch.
Here’s the blurb from Citizen.
Paying homage to a retro 1973 Citizen Bullhead model, the Citizen Limited Edition Promaster Bullhead Racing Chronograph showcases a unique case styling and is sure to stand out on your wrist.
A hand-assembled movement, the Bullhead Racing Chronograph features a 1/5 second flyback chronograph, alarm, instantaneous fly back, power reserve indicator, anti-reflective spherical sapphire crystal, date and water resistance to 200 metres. Featuring Eco-Drive technology, this timepiece is powered by any light and never need a battery.
Limited edition with just TWO left on the UK website by the way.
