Bulgari’s style takes from traditions in Greek and Roman craftsmanship to elegantly balance volume and subtlety. It is through its meticulous combination of influences that Bulgari has garnered an international and loyal high-profile clientele, which included Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. Universally known for its now-iconic Serpenti collection of snake-shaped coil bracelets and watches, Bulgari rose to prominence also for some other collections such as the Octo and the unconventional Diagono, like the one here offered. Specimens of the reference ACW38G equipped with the chronograph complication, the 38 mm case is manufactured in heavy white gold with a large inclined bezel engraved “BVLGARI—BVLGARI”. The gray dial has with applied white-gold baton indexes, subsidiary dials for the seconds, the 30-minute and 12-hour registers and the date between four and five o’clock.
