NevRo Brian Leiser does great work on the Citizen Chronographs. He restored my friends watch that was gifted to him by his dad when he was just a teenager. His attention to detail on dials and hands is excellent. Pics included.

SC-Texas Citizen actually made two versions of the bull head. One was a pot metal case with rounded sides. The other was the octagon shaped stainless steel case. If you look at the photo of the bullheads in my collection, those are all the stainless steel versions

I agree, it's a shame they're not that popular with collectors! (although I see this as a blessing; more for us collectors!)

Another point worth considering is that these cases aren't stainless but a plated steel. Still durable though, I've sanded a spare case I had while refinishing and did not encounter any worn plating.

Loved them both as well. There is some criticism about the portrayal of Bruce Lee - but if you ask me it was pretty accurate. He was an arrogant man in his early, green hornet days. He went around HK and California challenging the established wing Chun masters . In the wong jack man fight he repeatedly insulted WJK then fought dirty by trying to finger spear WJK in the eye. He might have been a great martial artist and he might have molded into a better person as the years passed, but humility was never a Bruce Lee strong suit

I realised I needed a Bullhead too so I'm collecting parts for a 9143 black-coated bullhead with gold trim. Can't wait till that's on my wrist!
