First introduced as a divers watch by Bulgari in 1994, the Diagono Scuba model is a diver’s version of the popular Diagono sports watch. A diving watch designed to be easily adaptable for all occasions.
Following a 2015 update, the Diagono Scuba line is now enriched by two new models in blue. The two new Bulgari Diagono Scubas for this year are fitted with a 41 mm stainless steel case and come with either a blue rubber strap with a steel pin buckle or a steel-link bracelet with a steel folding clasp.
The unidirectional ratcheted bezel, serving to measure dive and decompression times, frames the ocean blue dial enriched by the Super-LumiNova-treated hour markers and large 6 and 12 numerals. At 3 o’clock the date aperture with instantaneous change.
Water resistant to 300 meters, the watches are powered by the self-winding Manufacture BVL 191 calibre beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph) and offering a power reserve of 42 hours.
This movement is equipped with a stop-seconds device serving to block the balance when the crown is pulled out as well as with a disconnecting system that avoids wear of the pinions and saves energy when the winding device is activated, either via the crown or by the motion of the oscillating weight.
The new Bulgari Diagono Scuba 2016 retails at US$ 6,550 with rubber strap (ref. 102504) or US$ 7,100 with steel bracelet (ref. 102586).
