Why We Love it

Bulgari enjoys a unique relationship with the timepiece industry. 

A part of the LVMH group, they are perhaps better known for their luxurious high jewelry, fashion, and fragrance divisions than they are for their wristwatches. But what the create horologically are entirely unique in the space, and offer something far beyond what their fashion-centric background might suggest. One need look no further than their award-winning (and completely breathtaking) Octo Finissimo series to prove that they have it where it counts in terms of design chops.

Less well known but equally interesting to us, are timepieces such as this one — the Bulgari Diagono 42. Introduced in the mid 1990s, the Diagono collection has seen numerous iterations ranging from time-only models forged out of aluminum to precious metal references housing dual time and chronograph mechanisms. Each maintains signature Diagono hallmarks which include a ‘Bvlgari Bvlgari’ signed bezel and an integrated rubber strap made in likeness to the original Genta-penned  designs.

This particular Diagono, a Reference DG42SC, is housed in a 42mm stainless steel case with a brushed finish and features a ceramic bezel with ‘Bvlgari Bvlgari’ engravings, a locking crown and 100 meters of water resistance. Its matte black dial offers simplicity and legibility through its polished hour indices, luminous ‘sword’ handset and a date window at 3 o’clock.

Powered by a self-winding movement fresh off a professional service and fitted to a vented integrated rubber strap with signed stainless steel hardware, this Bulgari Diagono has a ton going for it, and is sure to stand out in a room full of other sporty wristwear.

The resulting product is at once retro-fantastic and highly avant-garde. You'd have to look pretty far and wide to find a contemporary timepiece that looks this cool!

Brand Story

+
Founded by Greek entrepreneur and silversmith Sotirios Voulgaris in Rome in 1884, Bvlgari has since become a luxury powerhouse.

Following its acquisition of the Gérald Genta and Daniel Roth brands from Singapore’s The Hour Glass in the early 2000s, the maison began a process of vertical integration that has allowed it to produce watches on par with the best from historical Swiss firms, the likes of which have stunned the world in the form of the Octo Finissimo collection. Indeed, having broken eight world records for thinness in as many years, the 2020s have proven Bvlgari to be a watchmaker unparalleled in modern history.

In 2011, Bvlgari was purchased by the LVMH Group, ensuring an allocation of resources and limelight that have placed the brand at the center of the watch buying public’s attention. From simple, time-only pieces to some of the world’s most complicated watches — and the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, full stop — Bvlgari’s watchmaking division continues to develop some of the most stunning timepieces in the world, each imbued with a certain Roman charm and sophistication.
