Basel Watch Show Preview Bulgari’s New Diagono Series Watch

BVLGARI presents two new Diagono series watches that show the retro style and design essence, boldly blending the quintessential traditional skills and superb modern technology, creating a new time display method. The Diagono Moon Phase Watch and Calibro 303 Chronograph highlight the supreme mechanical watchmaking process with outstanding style and eye-catching identification marks.

 The Diagono Moon Phase Watch and Calibro 303 chronograph watch were founded in 1988. They are highly distinguished by the engraved ‘BVLGARI BVLGARI’ double LOGO logo, which has become a model of noble and timeless watches. Although the functions of the moon phase watch are very different from those of the chronograph, the two completely different series have the same dial design.

 The moon phase watch and Calibro303 chronograph are from BVLGARI’s independent watch production workshop. The dial is completed with ancient infill enamel technology. This prestigious production process is extremely cumbersome-the grooves need to be cut out on the metal surface, and the transparent enamel glaze is filled into the pattern according to the design and fired. Pure craftsmanship, through complex production processes, to create noble and elegant, bright colors, exquisite visual effects.

 The dial of the Diagono series has a long history of infill enamel technology, and it has become the iconic watchmaking process that is very characteristic of the BVLGARI family. Diagono is derived from the ancient Greek ‘agòn’, which means ‘competition, competition’, and its design inspiration comes from the ancient Greek sculptor Milon’s ‘discustor’. The dial design is dynamic and reflects the classic style of the perfect combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern aesthetics.

Dianogo Moon Phase Watch: The Poetic Expression of Astronomical Watch

 The Diagono moon phase watch incorporates moon phase and calendar display functions. The retro and exquisite design injects a picturesque artistic breath into the complex watch manufacturing process. At the same time of using Swiss top-level filling enamel watchmaking technology, this series also has an original patented moon phase change cycle indication function. Unlike the dial design of the traditional moon phase display, this BVLGARI Bvlgari watch creatively uses a new mechanical system to express the moon’s cycle of activity, and this technology was independently developed by BVLGARI Bvlgari.

Poetic Moon Phase
 The self-winding movement mounted on the vibrating plate indicates the change of the moon phases through five positions pointed by the crescent-shaped hands. The pointer indicating the moon’s daily activity beats along the trajectory of the crescent once a day, showing the moon’s profit (from left to right) and the loss (from right to left). Each cycle means that the moon has completed a cyclic movement. This period is calculated on the basis of 29.5 days in the Northern Hemisphere. The moon phase dial is located at 6 o’clock. In the small window at the top of the dial, the internal arrow points to the left to indicate that the moon is gradually losing, and to the right indicates that the moon is gradually gaining. The moon phase display needs to be adjusted every 32 months.

Calendar and week
 This perfect and exquisite moon phase display technology comes from BVLGARI’s own BVL347 movement. This movement not only makes the Diagono moon phase watch accurate, but also displays the calendar and day. The 150 ° retrograde display dial between 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock represents the day of the week, and the dial between 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock represents the calendar. The calendar can be adjusted by the three adjusting hands in the middle of the case. This movement contains 347 parts, like the finely crafted rotor, all processed and assembled by hand. The oscillating weight is made of six different materials and polished in eight ways to reach the level that BVLGARI is famous for.

 Through the sapphire crystal mirror dial, you can see this precious movement and the oscillating weight protected in the 18K rose gold case. The diameter of the case is 42 mm. The middle part of the surface is polished and polished. The polished dial with polished and polished edges. The elegant dial with enamel manufacturing process has two color choices: ivory white and ebony black. Supreme elegance. The Diagono Moon Phase Watch is limited to 199 pieces worldwide.
