Some Things I've Learned About the Seiko Bullhead Reissue

Not saying these are deal breakers for me, but they are somewhat surprising and probably important that people should know before buying.

  • Bracelet links are folded, not solid.  Seriously.
  • Clasp is stamped metal with only a single adjustment hole.  No partial links are available.
  • Caseback is snap back.  Not screw down.  This makes DIY battery changes significantly more difficult.
  • One friend tells me the lug width is 19mm.  Another says 20mm.  Not sure which is correct.  Doesn't seem there's enough space to fit a Nato.
  • Supposedly the hour and minute hands are black except for the lumed areas.

Still through the case and dial look awesome.  Who knows, maybe these little foibles will give more of a vintage feel. LOL.
