Bulgari- Diagono Tourbillon

Bulgari has enriched its sporty Diagono watch collection with one of the most prestigious complications in haute horlogerie. The Bulgari Diagono Tourbillon features a 42mm case crafted from platinum, a black sunburst guilloche dial with a contrasting metallic minute sector, and a strap in black alligator with a platinum folding clasp.  Like other models from the Diagono collection, this watch showcases the characteristic "Bulgari-Bulgari" engraved bezel and protective shoulders for the winding crown.
Visible beneath a sapphire crystal window in the caseback is a manually wound movement designated as the BVL 200.  Comprised of 200 individual components and 20 jewels, the BVL 200 caliber features a tourbillon that revolves on its axis once per minute, bearing a balance wheel with a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour.  Power reserve of the spring barrel is approximately 64 hours.  A rich array of decorative refinements adorn the bridges and other components, including Cotes de Geneve, guilloche, and satine soleil.  On the dial side, the steel bridge bearing the tourbillon scintillates with finely chamfered edges, and meticulously polished screws.  
The Bulgari Diagono Tourbillon is water resistant to 50 meters.
