Regular price $0.00 $575.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS A SUPER FUNKY 1976 CITIZEN BULLHEAD CHRONOGRAPH RUNNING ON A RECENTLY SERVICED HI BEAT 8100 FLYBACK MOVEMENT. 

 

  • CASE: SOLID STEEL OCTAGONAL CASE IN EXCELLENT UNPOLISHED CONDITION MEASURING IN AT 38mm ACROSS BY 41mm LUG TO LUG. CHECK OUT ALL THE CRAZY FACETS AND SHARP LINES ON THIS BEAUTY. ALL THE ORIGINAL FINISHES ARE INTACT WITH JUST SOME MINOR HAIRLINES THROUGHOUT. YOU GOTTA LOVE THE BULLHEAD CONFIGURATION WITH THE PUSHERS AND ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN ON THE TOP GIVING IT THAT INFAMOUS "BULLHEAD" LOOK.

 

  • DIAL:  THERE IS A LOT TO TAKE IN ON THIS REVERSE PANDA DIAL. THAT SEMI-MATTE DIAL IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION WITH THOSE SILVER SUBDIALS MAKING FOR SOME GREAT CONTRAST. I LOVE THE VERTICALLY STACKED DAY/DATE DISPLAY IN THAT WHITE CIRCULAR SUBDIAL AT 6. REALLY LEGIBLE DESIGN WHICH IS A PLEASURE TO LOOK AT. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS  BRUTE IS POWERED BY THE IN-HOUSE 23 JEWEL CITIZEN 8100A HI BEAT 28880 MOVEMENT WHICH FEATURES A NIFTY FLYBACK FUNCTION.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. I WILL NOTE THE CHRONO SWEEP RESETS JUST A FRACTION OF A MILLIMETER TO THE LEFT OF ZERO, BUT NOW I'M JUST GETTING NIT-PICKY. WATCH WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD THIS ONE SERVICED WITHIN THE LAST YEAR. 

 

  • THIS RETRO BULLHEAD COMES MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL H-LINK CITIZEN SIGNED BRACELET. IT'S CURRENTLY SIZED FOR MY 6.75" WRIST WITH 5 ADDITIONAL MICRO-ADJUSTMENTS WHICH SHOULD ACCOMMODATE UP TO A 7.5-7.7" WRIST. THIS IS ONE OF THE FUNKIER CHRONO DESIGNS TO COME OUT OF THE 70s. WITH MANY MAJOR WATCH BRANDS OF THE ERA RELEASING THEIR OWN BULLHEAD DESIGNS, THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE STANDOUTS. SUCH A BLAST TO WEAR AND A GREAT PIECE FOR ANY DIE-HARD CHRONO COLLECTOR.
