Since 1994, Bulgari fans didn’t have to part from their beloved wristwatch brand when they decided to take up watersports or go for a 300-metre dive. For over two decades, the Diagono Scuba has been the luxury jeweller’s sturdiest sports watch and this year it has gotten a notably zesty revamp.
Typically a serious-looking nautical timepiece offered in a black or navy vulcanised rubber strap if not the fully metallic version, Bulgari has relaunched the Diagono Scuba in bright yellow and orange, as well as a pristine white. Because seamen like to have fun too, right?
The fresh, new look for the Diagono Scuba falls right in line with the growing trend for ungendered design and more versatility in the watch industry and beyond. The sunny makeover also, of course, doesn’t compromise the Bulgari standard of performance. The 2017 Diagono Scuba is powered by Calibre Solotempo BVL191 - a self-winding movement produced by Bulgari - has a 42-hour power reserve and beats at high-quality frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
That’s all good news whether you’re heading for some sun, sea and sand or just attending a social event in the CBD. On either occasions, the new Diagono Scuba won’t look of place but rather fashionable because when it comes to differentiating sports watches from the standard line, Bulgari has traditionally kept the differences subtle to negligible.
