Bulgari Diagono Chronograph Review

Bulgari Diagono Chronograph Watch Review

  The Bulgari (Bvlgari) Diagono Chronograph is a little more toned down than some other Bvlgari offerings. Bvlgari has not been shy about putting their name boldly on the watch in the past. Whether it be a bracelet and the bezel combo or just the bezel. What W&R likes about this offering is the branded name is tamed down on the bezel, it is not a distraction from the watch itself. 
  The watch has beautifully done embossed textured black dial. The dial layout is one of W&R favorite chronograph versions, with only two sub dials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock. This helps to keep the dial less cluttered in appearance, especially on 40mm watch. The date window on the Diagono also does not distract from the clean lines of the dial. The window is nicely tucked away between the 4 and 5 o’clock markers. The crown and pusher are not over styled and are well proportion for a 40mm watch.The show stealer on this particular version is the strap and it’s 3 blade folding clasp. The case back is solid, housing an automatic movement, with a 42 hour power reserve. Overall, the Bvlgari Diagono Chronograph (ref. DG40BSLDCH) is well executed. There are not many sport chronograph offerings coming in at 40mm with the larger case trends. If you are not into larger watches this Diagono might be worth taking a look into. 

Pros - Good proportions, great dial, great strap

Consideration - Price point vs. other watches in the same price range
