Diagono Scuba, Bulgari’s iconic nautical sports watch makes its return with four distinctive new versions imbued with contemporary Italian refinement and clothed in a diving suit.
Back in 1994, Bulgari introduced a nautical version of its Diagono sports watch. Its style was all about pure lines dedicated to efficiency. Diagono Scuba was much more than just an alternative among sports watches, and soon became a favourite with demanding customers, supplanting other more commonplace diver’s watches.
In the privileged circles of the international nautical world, Diagono Scuba, available in gold or steel versions fitted with the astonishing and highly specific metal bracelet or on a rubber strap, easily found its place on the decks of racing sailboats or yachts on a pleasure cruises. It offered a significant advantage in that that was no need to change watch for cocktails or a dinner, since Diagono Scuba remains elegant in every circumstance, accompanying its owner on all of life’s occasions, rather than merely serving as an indicator for strictly sporting moments.
2015 sees the Diagono Scuba return to the surface. Stronger as well as more beautiful, astonishing, luxurious and modern than ever, it proclaims its heritage and makes it an asset for the future, affirming this heredity with the boldness of novelty. Water-resistant to 300 metres, the new the Diagono Scuba is equipped with the Manufacture BVL 191 Solotempo calibre.
