Review-Bulgari: The Bulgari Daniel Roth Endurer: New Live Pictures!Date: Jul 20, 2010,06:34 AM - (view entire thread)
The Bulgari Collection Daniel Roth Endurer Chronosprint is one of the most anticipated watches in Bulgari's new collection. Many individuals here on the Bulgari forum have expressed interest in this watch due to its appealing sporty design. The shape and design of the case offers a formal reinterpretation of the elliptical case that is characteristic of the Daniel Roth line to which it belongs. It f eatures a sturdier, more rugged look , and expresses its subtleties through softened angles and curves. The Endurer isn't due to hit retail outlets until the fall but we can get a closer look at it here in the mean-time from live pictures courtesy of 'Kong'.
The flared ears on the sides of the case at 3 and 9 o'clock are some of the most attractive elements of the design of the watch. One can almost say that the Endurer looks like an offspring from the AP Offshore and Patek Nautilus, taking the strengths of both watches and fusing them together brilliantly.
Black and satin-brushed dial, sapphire crystal
Calibre DR1306 beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and drives the hour and minute hands on a slightly off-centred axis, while the large date window appears at 12 o’clock. Its patented mechanism is based on a specific construction due to the off-centred position of the hour and minute functions serving to ensure an optimal position of the Chronosprint function.
A simplified chronograph function which serves to measure long times, whereas traditional chronographs are generally used to measure short times on two to three counters. The Chronosprint function indicates the hours and minutes by two hands mounted on a single arbor.
One press on an ergonomically notched push-button at 7:30 positions the hands at 12 o’clock and starts the chronograph.
