Bulgari Bulgari Chronograph Watch Review

Bulgari Bulgari Chronograph Watch Review

The Santos-Dumont represented a new type of design that followed a trend of timepieces that moved away from the traditional round cases of pocket watches. After the square Santos-Dumont watch Cartier created the Tonneau watch in 1906 and later the Tortue. All of the early Cartier watches (for both men and women) feature tonneau (barrel-shaped), square, or rectangular case designs. Produced one year before the Santos-Dumont, Cartier has a Tonneau wristwatch from 1911. Also in gold, the dial has a beautiful light guilloche engraving that was popular in other Cartier products at the time.

Between the two Longines Heritage Diver models, I prefer the chronograph as it makes better use of the dial and the overall 1970s dive watch theme. It is an interesting watch, but I still think that Longines is stuck in a retro-rewind and I'd love to see some more contemporary fare from the brand in the future. Having said that, if vintage-style watches are selling well, then don't expect too many changes soon.
