The Bulgari diagono Scuba model replica was first introduced by Bulgari in 1994 as the diver’s version of its Bulgari Diagono sports replica watch. A diving replica watch with an elegant design that could make it easily adaptable to all occasions.
Revamped last year (we wrote about it here), the Diagono Scuba line is now enriched by two new models characterised by the trendiest colour of the moment, blue.
The two new Bulgari Mens replica Diagono Scuba 2016 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. Aicat 3 o’clock the date aperture with instantaneous change.
Water resistant to 300 metres / 1000 feet, the two models are equipped with 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.
Usually when you combine fashion and function you get a certain degree of a device in-between. Well if you ask me what this in-between means, it is usually that horology nuisance between form and factor making the choice between dress watches and chronometers extremely trivial. How about just let the experts solve this dilemma? That brings us to the incredibly fashionable and sophisticated Bulgari Papillon Heure Sautante replica watch that was just unveiled during the SIAR in Mexico this year. To the uninitiated, this watch features the brand’s legendary minutes indication system.
The design of the Bulgari Papillon Heure Sautante replica watches is typical of a flying butterfly at least if you look at the dial. However at 45 mm, the case that is available in either platinum or pink gold looks quite small considering the Bulgari replica watch very nice engine underneath its crystal replica watches face. Personally, I find the uniformity of overall design very much amusing to the five senses. The lugs appear large at first look but once you pair it with the crown and the bezel, everything seems to be made in harmony with each other after all, Bulgari replica watch is a sophisticated watch and this Papillon Heure Sautante replica watch is a mere reinterpretation of the kickass mechanism that is the selling point of this beautiful watch.
The Bulgari Papillon Heure Sautante replica watch brings us to the dark anthracite dial framed in a somewhat unique manner. The square sides of the case pretty much give an illusion of a smaller size for the Papillon Heure Sautante. I like this design since it kind of makes the Bulgari fake watch appear not just functional but absolutely mesmerizing on dressed occasions. It is quite hard not to look at it, trust me. This is not your typical watch though since you literally have to familiarize yourself with somehow complicated minutes indication system.
Basically how it works is quite simple. If you look at the dial of the Bulgari Papillon Heure Sautante replica watch, you will find two independent, retractable, diamond-shaped hands on a supporting disc. Each hand alternately sweeps over a graduated minutes scale spread over an 180-degree half circle. You can tell the minutes through these hands by simply looking at the first one that is positioned on the segment that signals the progression of the minutes. The second hand actually remains offline at least since, in a retracted position, it becomes simply invisible when the disc turns. The 55th minute on the display segment is indicated on the lower display with the date being at the 12 o’clock.
