Combining the unique Italian design and the Swiss art of watch making, Bvlgari watches are a personal favorite of mine. They have recently released a watch to celebrate not just their 125 years, but also the 20 years of the Diagono model. It is the new Bvlgari Diagono Calibro 303 chronograph. According to Bvlgari, they “devoted 6,740 hours to develop the 506 components.” The 42mm case features a glistening 18kt white gold bezel with a beautiful steel bracelet. This astonishing chronograph has a triple layered dial. Featuring Satine Soleil and vertical treatments, the Diagono dial flaunts two rose-gold sub dials at the three and nine o’clock positions.

The hour, minute and second hands are also rose-gold toned. The Bvlgari Diagono Calibro 303 has an anti-reflective sapphire crystal with a transparent caseback showing the automatic winding Caliber BVL 303. It is water-resistant up to 100m and has a power reserve of 45 hours. Even with keeping the classic look of the Diagono, Bvlgari really made the Calibro 303 stand out. I love every aspect of the timepiece. From the three-layered dial with the contrasting gold sub dials to the shinny stylish bezel, it all comes together to form an elegant, yet sporty, watch. This Bvlgari Diagono has a retail price of $10,700.

  3. Looking onlne I still have not seen a "wrist shot" of one of these. The bezel to dial ratio is kind of big without the bezel doing anything, like keeping GMT time or somthing, other than to advertise the Bulgari name. I'd like to see how it all looks in "real life". A lot of times such details fade into the background at a distance.

    Also, I wish they made the self-winding rotor skeleton to more easily see what seems to be a wonderful mechanism.
