'Agòn' inspired watch collection launched
Jul '08
The name inspired by the ancient Greek work “agòn,” competition, evokes a sporty style. Diagono was born 20 years ago from a simple, essential concept: perceiving movement an instant before it occurs, sensing all its force and anticipating its tension. Like the Discobolos of Myron, which inspired it, its design represents the essence of dynamic, modern style, as realized with a balanced, mechanical technique and no shortcuts.

The Diagono line reinvents the concept of elegance applied to contemporary sports watches, using dynamic lines and high-precision mechanics. Gold, steel, and rubber, worked with the same attention and precision, characterize the oversized case and refined finishing elements. The design highlighted by the new, flat bezel and the deliberate alternation of glossy and matte surfaces underscores the characteristic two-tone color scheme on certain models. The double Bulgari logo reaffirms its character and identity.

The matte finish bracelet requires 90 manual operations, with the result that its 106 components achieve the required functional perfection. On the steel versions, the folding steel clasp with a double safety button ensures comfort, efficiency, and precision.

These concepts of functionality and solidity are also applied on the chronographic buttons with the addition of a new non-skid surface realized in different versions: steel, gold, or rubber. The dials have a sophisticated relief treatment, which lend depth and luminosity to the ensemble.

The refined, hand-applied indices and réhauts render these watches even more precious. The newly redesigned and extremely dynamic hands have a skeleton form and luminescent interior. Now offering the GMT or chronograph version, with the latter also being offered in women's sizes, the Diagono always uses top-quality Swiss movements, guaranteeing maximum precision and durability over time.

Diagono Calibro 303
Realized to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Diagono, the Diagono Calibro 303 perfectly represents the new trend adopted by this collection. Its case, comprised of 75 different elements and the fruit of lengthy design, is characterized by a new bezel with a flat, white gold profile.

A veritable monument to watchmaking know-how, the Calibro 303 features extreme attention to detail, such as the anti-skid surface with vertical lines on the two chronographic buttons, the double matte and glossy finish of the case, and the embracing design of the winding crown guard.

The new dial is realized on three levels with different types of finishing: a metal base with Satinée Soleil decoration; an upper anthracite level with vertical treatment; supplemental counters finished with circular trim; faceted, luminescent, and hand-applied indices; an external, hand-applied réhaut with details.

A BVL 303 caliber movement is visible through the sapphire glass window on the back. The number “303” indicates the number of components comprising it: exactly 303. This handmade, self-winding chronograph has an especially thin profile that renders the watch extremely pleasant to wear. Its development requires 3,520 hours of work and the use of 10 different materials.

The base plate alone, which is the skeleton of the movement, requires 250 different manual finishing and polishing operations. The sophisticated system for distributing the chronographic functions is technologically significant, being realized with a column wheel, while a vertically mounted pinion prevents jumping during start-up, stopping, and resetting of the chronograph. Every watch is tested for water resistance to a depth of 100 meters, offering the end user the most severe guarantee of quality.
