Baselworld 2010: Bulgari Diagono Caliber 303 Chronograph

Bulgari Diagono Caliber 303 Chronograph

A Baselworld pre-release from Bulgari, and it is a nice looking chronograph in the Diagono collection.  Nice looking as in I like the choice of colors.  As you may know, the Bulgari Diagono collection has been around for more than 20 years now, and it is probably the “signature” look for Bulgari watches.  While I think Bulgari is still a bit too much on the “fashion brand” side of the watch world for me, they are clearly trying to change that now by assimilating integrating Daniel Roth and Gerald Genta, so maybe I will keep a closer eye on the brand. This particular model is of course powered by the 303-part BVL caliber 303, an automatic movement that is finished entirely by hand (it is a Piguet 1185 base movement, for you real watch nerds out there).  This movement is a column-wheel chronograph which means which is a step-up from your basic chronograph movement in that it prevents the chrono second hand from skipping when it starts/stops/resets.  Other Specs:   40mm steel case, 13mm thick, sapphire crystal caseback, water resistant 100 meters, blue alligator strap.  Here it is:

    Whoa, that’s one serious bezel! 😉

  • The Rake

    Funny, I just can’t get with Bulgari’s bezels when they hit them in this manner. I want to like it, but can’t.
