As one of the first ‘sporty chic’ watches that could be worn in deep water, the Bulgari Diagono Scuba has been a fixture among yachtsman and beachgoers across Europe since it debuted in 1994. Now powered by Bulgari’s own Solotempo movement, this newest version of the diver greets the summer in three new hues, each designed for fun as well as high visibility. You may recall that the Diagono scalloped bezel is meant to recall Roman columns while the nicely engineered lugs echo many seaborne latches and tactical tools.
The watch’s 41mm steel case is 10.75mm thick and offers an appropriately one-way rotating bezel and a steel screw-in crown with a black ceramic insert. The rhodium-plated hands and those extremely large five-minute markers are liberally set with SuperLuminova, which insures that the watch retains its visibility even as the sun sets during any summertime evening. Bulgari offers a choice of orange, yellow or white dials to match the vulcanized rubber strap, itself tipped with a steel buckle.
