Diagono Ceramic, a distinctive instrument whose dynamic and contemporary aesthetic reinterprets the fundamental values of an iconic model born over twenty years ago.

 

Its powerful personality asserts itself at first glance.

 

The new Diagono Ceramic proudly proclaims the resolutely contemporary and sporting vocation it has successfully maintained from the time of its launch. Interpreted in steel/ceramic & pink gold/ceramic versions, Diagono plays on its size as well as the colour of its bezel and of the natural rubber strap, depending on whether it is designed for men or women. In both cases, this new model asserts its undeniable presence as a distinctive timepiece and an efficient measuring instrument.

 

Several signature features set the seal on the Diagono collection, making it a coveted style icon : the double Brand logo engraving on the bezel; a skilfully structured case based on a complex construction; and the instantly recognisable screws securing it to the strap.

Dynamic and contemporary aesthetic appeal

 

Born over 20 years ago, the Diaaono line is nurtured by history and ancient mythology, an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Bulgari. Subtly evoking the Ancient Greek word agòn, meaning “competition”, the name of the model echoes the Discobulus of Myron, the famous Greek sculpture of a discus thrower underlying the aesthetic essence of this dynamically contemporary model. Its roots firmly planted in Ancient Greece bear vivid testimony to its timeless modernity.

 

The line has ingeniously evolved over the years, acquiring a slimmer, purer bezel providing a broader dial opening that guarantees optimal readability of the information.

 

Loyal to its enduring spirit, the Diagono 2012 vintage reinterprets the fundamental values of the line through a bold and refined approach. In its masculine version, this elegant chronograph features a steel or 18-carat satin-finished pink gold case measuring 42 mm in diameter. The delicately softened angles, together with alternating brushed and polished surfaces, endow it with a strong personality entirely in tune with its vocation as a sports instrument.

 

The overall effect is accentuated by a satin-finish black ceramic bezel bearing the double Brand logo. It is matched by chronograph pushers also made from this high-tech material, along with a ceramic-set steel or 18-carat pink gold crown.

A pure, powerful dial

 

Diagono Ceramic is powered by Calibre B130, a mechanical self-winding movement equipped with a chronograph module. The functions are reflected on an extremely pure deep-black dial in the two men’s versions, bearing three short-time hour, minute and seconds measurement counters that are either silver- or gold-toned depending on the version. The hands adopt the same colour codes in accordance with the version, while the date appears through a window at 4.30.

 

This distinctive watch is teamed with a mono-block black rubber strap featuring steel or 18-carat gold inserts, ensuring an excellent hold on the wrist as well as a supple and comfortable feel. It is connected to the case via an extremely sophisticated screw-type lug system guaranteeing an ergonomic fit.

 

The masculine version of the Diagono Ceramic is matched by an exquisitely feminine and slightly smaller version that nonetheless carries all the collection’s keynote design codes.
