Stuckx Watches "The Bull"

Netherlands based micro watch brand has launched a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign to promote "The Bull", its new wristwatch inspired by the iconic Bullhead chronograph watches. Available in mechanical as well as mecha-quartz versions, the Stuckx Bull chronograph boasts a vintage inspired style with a uniquely designed case, dial and hands.
"The Bull" mechanical model features 2 counter chronograph with automatic winding featuring a smoothly running seconds hand at the 12 position, chronograph minute counter at the 6 position and central chrono seconds hand. This model is powered by the Seiko/TMI NE-88 chronograph with column wheel and vertical clutch running at 28.800 bph.
 This version comes with a see-through, display case back. Pre order price stares from Euro 699 incl worldwide shipping.

Two models are available in mecha quartz: 2 counter and 3 counter versions. The  "2-Eye" Mecha-quartz chronograph has a running seconds hand at the 3 position, a chrono minute counter at the 9 position, a smoothly moving central chrono seconds hand and instantaneous fly-back reset. It also shows the date at the 6 position. This model uses the VK series mecha-quartz movement by Seiko/TMI.
 The   "3-Eye" Mecha-quartz chronograph has 3 subdials. It exchanges the date at 6 for a chrono hour counter. This model also uses the VK series mecha-quartz movement but in a different configuration. Pre order price for both mecha-quarts models is Euro 250 including worldwide shipping.
Equipped with a uni-directional ceramic bezel with 120 clicks and tested for 200 meters water resistance, the Bull is not only a reliable stopwatch but also a perfect accessory for professional marine activity, serious surface water sports and scuba diving. The Bull will be available in 9 variations: 3 colours for each movement variation.
