The 1968 is the iconic model of BOMBERG, representing the roots of the brand. The year 1968 is in reference to one of the most significant years of the 20th Century which ushered in new social parameters. Symbolic of the year, an era of great changes and innovations, the 1968 is characterized by an atypical and unconventional design.
The 1968 comes in two models: The 1968 Quartz Chronograph measuring 39MM, and the 1968 Quartz Chronograph measuring 44MM. The asymmetric case of the 1968 allows for the watch to follow the contours of your wrist, creating a snug and comfortable fit.
The watch has a retro inspired “Bullhead” configuration, meaning the crown and pushers are positioned at 12 o’clock as opposed to at 3 o’clock like most watches, a design popularized back in the late 60’s and early 70’s due to the popularity of motor sports. With 2 large chronograph counters, a stainless steel casing with mineral crystal face, and a muscular design with a sporty rubber strap – also available in colorful textile versions – together these ingredients create a unique timepiece with a retro look.
