Crafted entirely in-house with the Italian maison's Solotempo self-winding Manufacture BVL 191 calibre, the Scuba is a quintessential diver's watch, featuring a unidirectional-ratcheted bezel to measure dive and decompression times, a screw-lock crown and a water resistance of 300m. Dressed in a new shade of opulent blue, the distinctive watch face contrasted with Superluminova hands and hour markers for maximum legibility leaves a bold, visual impact. Outfitted in robust rubber straps or a sturdy steel bracelet, both variations cut an undeniably sharp silhouette.

A timepiece evocative of Bulgari's illustrious heritage and the ocean's call, the Diagono Scuba is the ideal marriage between high performance and high style, tailor made for the high life.

The Diagono Scuba is available in all Bulgari boutiques and authorised retailers.
