PuristS and BVLGARI announce the PuristS 10th Diagono X-Pro watch


The PuristS' family of horology and luxury websites (ThePuristS.com and PuristSPro.com) is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2011, with a gathering of PuristS, friends, watchmakers and sponsors.  A number of watchmakers and brands are issuing limited edition or piece unique watches to commemorate a decade of PuristS independence on the horological scene. 

"It is apt that one of the PuristS 10th Anniversary watches is the Bulgari PuristS 10th Diagono X-Pro " said Dr Melvyn Teillol-Foo (PuristSPro CEO), continuing: "The Gerald Genta and Daniel Roth forums were amongst the earliest brand forums established in the days of ThePuristS.com and continuing the relationship with the Bulgari Forum on PuristSPro.com".  

BVLGARI PuristS 10th Diagono X-Pro (design impression)


The BVLGARI PuristS 10th Diagono X-Pro watch is a limited edition of 50 pieces available initially to PuristS and those attending the 10th Anniversary celebrations at IGOTT-2 in Las Vegas; and subsequently at selected Bulgari Boutiques worldwide.

It is a COSC-certified chronometer with a column-wheel that allows chronograph function to be activated with great accuracy, while avoiding any jerking or resistance.  BVLGARI Watch Business Head, Guido Terreni explained, "We designed this special piece with PuristS to celebrate their 10th Anniversary and our long association with that on-line community.  It incorporates PuristSPro blue colour theme whilst maintaining all the important design features of the regular X-Pro".

Meticulous overall finishing is enhanced by decorative techniques and surface treatments: the steel parts feature alternating polished, snailed and circular-grained surfaces.  Certain load-bearing components are bevelled and the screw heads are polished. 


Two additional time zone displays
In addition to the standard display of local time by hour/minute hands, the two additional hour hands are identified in two very different ways to ensure optimal read-off.  The outer rim of the dial has a 24-hour graduation divided into two distinct 12-hour segments and clearly shows the day/night zones on a track, swept over by the GMT pointer.


The third time zone display is controlled by a notched bezel specially developed for the Diagono X-Pro: a bi-directional element with 24-hour graduation,  the day/night zones marked off by alternating surface colours on two 12-hour segments: steel for day-time and rubber for night-time.  This bezel has a highly innovative device exclusive to Bulgari; it can be locked to the chosen time zone.  A simple press allows rotary adjustment and releasing pressure release locks the bezel avoiding handling error.


Multi-component case construction
Boasting an ultra-sophisticated construction, its 45 mm-diameter case is composed of 104 parts .  It combines steel , grade 5 titanium , rubber and a DLC-treated (Diamond-Like Carbon) steel middle.  The latter high-tech treatment hardens the metal and strongly increases its scratch-resistance.  The striated rubber coating and the steel pushers and crown ensure an ideal grip.  The case is fitted with a screw-down transparent sapphire crystal back enabling one to admire the refined mechanism powering the BVLGARI PuristS 10th Diagono X-Pro .


In addition to the originality of the notched bezel, the imposing case also boasts an innovative additional feature in the form of perfectly ergonomic lugs that can be adjusted along a seven-degree angle in either direction.  This complex device comprises shock-absorbers , thus enabling the watch to easily adapt to any type of wrist while ensuring an optimal and eminently comfortable fit.  It is fitted with a rubber strap fastened by a pin buckle with steel inserts guaranteeing a perfect combination of rigidity and suppleness.


Bulgari PuristS 10th Diagono X-Pro (Bulgari P10) watches will be launched and available to PuristS at the 10th Anniversary Party (IGOTT-2).  The watch will be presented at IGOTT-2 on 30th May 2011. IGOTT attendees and PuristS will get priority to pre-order before the offering at selected BVLGARI boutiques around the world. To accommodate the high demand for the Bulgari P10 , please send your early availability requests to this email:  PuristS10th @ puristspro . com [remove the spaces]
