The Bvlgari watch collection encompasses a wide range of tourbillons

The Bvlgari watch collection encompasses a wide range of tourbillons including the Octo Tourbillon Retro, Daniel Roth Tourbillon 8 Jours, Sotirio Tourbillon Perpetual, and my personal favorite the futuristic looking Gerald Genta Toubillon Sapphire. During my recent visit to the Bvlgari Boutique in Las vegas, I had a chance to handle another tourbillon: The Bvlgari Diagono Tourbillon in platinum. I have to admit that i tend to gravitate towards the more sporty looking watches but the elegant lines and heavy weight felt on the wrist of the Diagono Tourbillon made me take a second look.

The Bvlgari Diagono Tourbillon is 42mm in diameter with angled lugs which made it very comfortable on my small wrist. The case and deployant clasp is made of platinum and even though it was on a crocodile strap it still had a hefty and solid feel to it. The Diagono case is slightly thicker than the regular Bvlgari-Bvlgari case (I don't have the exact measurements) but it easily fit underneath my shirt cuffs without snagging.

The dial is very legible with a large '12' indicator at the 12 o'clock position. The hands are broad and taper out toward the tips but are skeletonized.

One of the most recognizable features of the replica cartier watches uk line is the signature BVLGARI-BVLGARI logo on the bezel. The quality of work on this bezel is something to take note of. The BVLGARI logo is not engraved or laser etched. Its actually made by stamping and achieved over several steps in the manufacturing process. I found this amazing that Bvlgari is able to create sharp and clear lines in the definition of the bezel logo. The bezel also reminds me of the finish on the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak since the Bvlgari has an alternating brushed and polished finish around the edges.

(A little interesting fact regarding the logo on the bezel. Bvlgari had originally made a limited series of only 100 gold quartz watches in 1975 intended as gifts for Bvlgari clients. And it was the first time that a watch with a bold BVLGARI logo was placed on the bezel. This special edition had the bezel had a relief inscription of replica panerai watches uk. Only two years later in 1977, Bvlgari launched the BVLGARI-BVLGARI line of watches. As many may already know, the bezel was the work of renowned designer Gerald Genta who had also designed the legendary Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Nautilus, IWC Ingenieur and several other iconic watches. It was an immediate success since the beginning and has continued to be one of Bvlgari's iconic timepieces. )#)

Another nice touch that highlights the quality of the case are the lugs. The caseband and lugs are two pieces, and Bvlgari applies a brush finish separately then joins the round lugs to the case.

As some may know Bvlgari watches particularly common in bracelets

The new Serpenti Collection of watches was first presented at Baselworld last year and is reflective of Bvlgari’s long standing use of the snake as a design theme. In the form of a stylized snake made up of replica Bvlgari watches gold segments the Serpenti watch coils around in a single sinuous curve, beginning with the watch face head and ending with the tapered tail. In ancient Roman times, people often wore talismans for good luck or to ward off ill-fortune. One of the most common ancient Roman symbols used in these talismans was the image of the coiled snake. It represented immortality and was particularly common in bracelets.

The Serpenti watch is available in stainless steel, yellow gold with white face, pink gold with black face, single or double coil and with or without diamond bezel. The version that i had the pleasure of reviewing consists of a single coil in polished stainless steel with a white face. With a retail low price, it is the most affordable of the replica tag heuer watches uk choices and the one that I consider to be the most versatile as well.

There is really no better time to launch the BVLGARI Endurer Chronosprint ALL BLACKS Special Edition this year with the ALL BLACKS winning the 2011 Rugby World Cup. For the fans of all BLACKS, this edition of Endurer Chronosprint may have a special meaning, as it signifies the team endurance, perseverance and performance to break out of their 24 years dry spell against nemesis France.

As some may know, the collaboration to make this edition is not only because both share similar values - Excellence and Performance, but both has significant milestones in the year of 1905. For Bvlgari, it opened replica omega watches uk first shop at Rome's Via Condotti. It was also the year the new Zealand team, first toured Britain and name the team as "All Blacks" playing in uniform of black shirts, shorts and socks with the silver fern logo.
