Under its stainless steel and ceramic skin, the Bvlgari Octo Bi-Retro (ref. OBR.Y.1C) is essentially the same gorgeous Gerald Genta Octo Bi-Retro with its exterior slightly tweaked to be more in line with the Italian fashion brand’s current design language.
Bulgari has revealed an updated version of its highly successful Diagono Caliber 303 Chronograph. Now coming as ref. DG42C3SWGLDCH, it looks even more spectacular than ever.
Earlier this year, Panerai has revealed its Luminor Chrono Daylight Titanium Blue Dial (PAM 326) collection.
The new de GRISOGONO Fuso Quadrato combines the Swiss jeweler’s trademark square body with a pair of superimposed dials: one showing time in your current place of stay and the other, hidden when not needed by an amazing diaphragm mechanism, indicates current time in some other city. From where we at worldwatchreview.com stand, so far this is one of the most interesting takes on an idea of a GMT watch that was presented during the last decade.
Established back in 1884, the Italian fashion house celebrates its anniversary with a rose gold version of its Bvlgari Sotirio 125th Anniversary Edition. With its symmetrical art-deco dial and so called “hunter” case back cover that is becoming more and more popular for the last couple of years, the timepiece produces a very strong impression. In fact, it looks like the most Italian (if not “Roman”) among recently introduced “Swiss Made” devices.
Unveiled last march right before the Baselworld 2008 world fair, the Xemex XE 5000 Ivory chronograph looks both trendy and refined in a modern, Web 2.0 way. I guess, guys from the legendary Porsche Design studio would be proud to make one, too.
Porsche Design first introduced the self-winding Worldtimer P’6750 (ref. P67220.127.116.110) back in April 2007 during the annual show in Basel, Switzerland as a black PVD coated titanium timepiece. Starting 2008, it is available in a much more impressive (also, more expensive) 18-karat rose gold case.
The Italian-based fashion and jewelry brand Bvlgari keeps adding new exclusive models to its elegant Diagono collection. Trying to keep their accessories as upscale as practically possible, the brand issues this Diagono Retrograde Moonphase (ref. DGP42BGLDMP) in an almost prohibitively priced massive rose gold case that features their own self-winding movement. Coming as a -relatively- limited-edition model and featuring their traditional exaggerated design, it will possibly sell off fast thanks to its brief, but dramatic cameo on Robert Downey Jr’s wrist at the latest Iron Man blockbuster.
With its signature styling and a well-chosen automatic movement that keeps it ticking, new Bvlgari Diagono Calibro 303 Chronograph looks like a nice choice for a person in search for a sportier kind of a reliable timekeeper that doesn’t try to look like your average run-off-the-mill Omega or Breitling.
