Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS/12.M

by Jerrica Tisdale

If you’re in need of a great new watch, then consider one of the Bvlgari watches. These sleek timepieces are expensive looking, but affordable. They also have a unique style that many luxury watches don’t possess. If you buy a Bvlgari watch you can expect a lifetime of quality.

If you like simple bracelet like watches then you might want the Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS/12.M watch. The stainless steel piece captures the eyes of many admirers. It’s simple, yet unique. The stainless steel clasp wristband makes it classic and the mother of pearl clock window give it a modern edge.  Here are some other features:

    • Diamond like circle notches in the clock window instead of numbers
    •  Quartz movement
    • Scratch resistant crystal
    • 22 mm diameter
    • 30 meter (99 feet) water resistant

If you don’t like the colors, but like the overall design then there are many choices. But one really similar one but different colors is the Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS.S watch. They have all the same features. Their only differences are that the Bvlgari B.Zero1 BZ22BSS.S has a black dial window and the Bvlgari B. Zero1.BZ22BSS/12.M has a blue mother of pearl one. They are also priced differently. The Bvlgari B.Zero1 BZ22BSS.S originally retails for $ 2,600 and the BZ22BSS/12.S watch costs $3,300 . So there aren’t many differences between the two watches so picking between them may depend on very small factors of colors and price.

The watch has many great features, but there are some flaws that can’t be overlooked. Here are a few:

Pros

  • It’s small enough to fit on almost any female wrist and not be too big
  • It looks expensive, but it’s affordable
  • The blue window and stainless steel blend together well

Cons

  • It looks almost plastic and fake looking in the pictures, this might kill the appeal to some women
  • The lack of numbers may make it hard to tell time
  • It looks more like a bracelet then a watch and that might kill the appeal to many people

Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS/12.M watch is beautiful, affordable, and great for bracelet lovers. This watch will look great on your wrist. It also won’t bankrupt you buying it. It’s a great watch that any woman or girl might love. The only glaring flaws are that you can’t really use it to tell time, and it almost looks too much like a bracelet to get labeled a watch. Great choice for an additional piece to add to your jewelry collection,  but not a good choice for a watch to tell the time of day.

by Jerrica Tisdale

A delicate watch can represent a woman’s style perfectly. She’ll wear it at special occasions and casual events. It’ll share memories with her as she grows and changes, a great luxury watch will last with all her major moments.  There are many watches that may fulfill her needs, but if she wants something small and unique then she might choose one of the Bvlgari watches.

One that might specifically meet your needs is the Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS.S watch.

This watch is a completely unique women’s watch, it’s almost a hybrid of a watch and a bracelet. It has things that make it standout from many of its competitors. Its clasp is made for very tiny wrists and it’s completely stainless steel. Some other cool features of this watch are:

  • Quartz movement
  • Scratch resistant crystal
  • 22 mm diameter
  • 30 meter (99 feet) water resistant

If you’re looking for a cool watch that really shows off a distinctive design then the Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS.S watch is a good choice. But it’s not the only watch made by Bvlgari that has this design. There are a couple others, but the one that most closely resembles the B.Zero1 BZ22BSS.S is the BVLGARI B.zero1 Quartz Women’s BZ22BSS/12.S watch. Both watches have a tiny clock window and a stainless steel wrist clap. They also contain the same features, like 22mm diameter, 30 meters water resistant and things such as that. The only real difference between them is price and the clock window. Neither watch actually have numbers, but the Bvlgari B.Zero1 BZ22BSS.S watch has little squares that stand in place of numbers. The BVLGARI B.zero1 BZ22BSS/12.S watch has little circles that look like diamonds. The inside of the clock window of the BVLGARI B.zero1 BZ22BSS/12.S is blue and the Bvlgari B.Zero1 BZ22BSS.S it’s black. The Bvlgari B.Zero1 BZ22BSS.S costs $ 2,600 (not on sale) and the BZ22BSS/12.S watch costs $3,300 (not on sale). So there aren’t many differences between the two watches so picking between them may depend on very small factors.

The Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS.S watch is really beautiful but it has some flaws. Here are some of its positive and negative attributes of the watch:

Pros

  • Small so probably a perfect fit for many wrists
  • Looks more like a bracelet than a watch, so may appeal to those that don’t like the typical watch design

Cons

  • No numbers, so it’s difficult to use to tell time
  • Pretty to show off, but no real features that make it a watch besides clock hands

Overall, the Bvlgari B.Zero1 Women’s BZ22BSS.S watch is really rare in its design and any girl would love to wear it. But for those women that want a reliable method of telling time, this is not your watch. But if you just want a pretty unique timepiece then this may be perfect for you.

Bvlgari Bvlgari Womens Watch BB33WSGDAUTO/N Review

Written by: K.C. Moore

The Bvlgari Bvlgari Women’s Watch BB33WSGDAUTO/N is a truly outstanding timepiece. This watch is elegant and timeless, with a sophisticated edge that is perfect for any woman this looking for a watch with a classic design and a modern touch.

This timepiece is made from stainless steel and 18K yellow gold.  It’s bracelet is made from a combination of 18K gold and stainless steel, with a brushed, high polish finish that gives it an excellent shine.  The bracelet length is 7 inches long with a fold over clasp and is sizable, which guarantees a superb fit.  The bezel is made from 18K yellow gold and the white dial is covered with ultra scratch resistant sapphire crystal.  Sapphire is the most expensive and durable dial covering available, giving you the reassurance that your watch is made with incredibly high quality products and created with the utmost care and consideration.

This watch is perfect for anyone that wants a highly dependable, stylish timepiece that has that touch of flare that is sure to get noticed daily.  I love the gold detailing and the display is very easy to read with the white dial and gold accents.

Pros

  • Water resistant up to 30 meters
  • Stainless steel and 18K gold
  • High quality
  • Durable
  • Sizable
  • Sapphire scratch resistant
  • Easy to read

The materials that are used to make this watch speak to how well made it is.  Stainless stell and 18K gold, with a sapphire scratch resistant dial cover make for a high quality, durable timepiece.  It’s also very helpful that this watch resists water up to 30 meters, keeping it safe in rain and light water exposure like short swimming sessions.

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Lack of color

This watch retails for $6,900 and while you can get it at a discounted price online, that is still a considerable sum to pay for a watch.  The stainless steel and 18K gold make for a beautiful design, but this watch lacks the pop of color that is so popular and trendy right now.

If you’re looking for a refined, well crafted timepiece that is classic and timeless, the Bvlgari Bvlgari Womens BB33WSGDAUTO/N watch is for you.  I don’t recommend it for people who want to be a little more adventurous with their accessory choices, but this watch is a really great buy for someone looking for an every day watch with an eye-catching design, and well worth the money it costs.

Cons

  • Boring
  • Simple features
  • Price

This watch does not come with many extra features, but if you’re looking for something simple and classic, then this could be the watch for you.  My main issue with it is that it can be a little boring.  If you’re looking for a watch that gets a lot of attention on the street or out with friends, I don’t think this is the right timepiece for you.  This watch retails for $4,400, so it also isn’t ideal if you’re looking to spend less than a few thousand dollars on your watch.

Overall, I’d say this watch is a good byt and well worth the money.  If you’re looking for a simple, classic watch without  a lot of bells and whistles, the Bvlgari Bvlgari Womens Watch BB23BSSD/N could be the watch for you.

Bvlgari Assioma D Women’s AA31WGD1GD1

by Jerrica Tisdale

“Bvlgari watches combine the extraordinary creativity and emotional impact of Italian design with traditional Swiss expertise. They are made to the highest levels of precision and the most stringent quality standards adopted in Swiss watchmaking”

A pretty bold declaration by the Bvlgari company, but with decades of experience, and excellent services, they may live up to their promise.

With hundreds of watches to choose from, you may be wondering “what’s the best watch for me?”

Does gold shine in your eyes? Do diamonds mesmerize you? Do you want a watch that makes traditional watches look dated? Are you the trendsetter among your inner-circle?

Then a watch that might fulfill your timepiece needs is the Bvlgari Assioma D Women’s AA31WGD1GD1 watch.

Completely covered in yellow-gold, and diamonds surrounding the inner layer, the Assioma AA31WGD1GD1 is not for the occasional gold lovers. This watch is for a girl that knows her style and knows what she wants in life. The finer things are important to her, and style is even more important. Besides, radiating gold and diamonds, some other great features of this watch are:

    • Scratch resistant crystal
    • Water-resistant for 50 meters (167 feet)
    • 31 mm diameters
    • Hidden clasp

This watch is beautiful, but might not perfectly fit your style. Maybe you love gold, but not diamonds? Well if that’s the case then the Bvlgari Assioma D Women’s AA31WGG watch may be your perfect fit. The watches are almost completely designed the same and have all of the same features. The only differences are that the AA31WGG is only water resistant for 30 feet, costs $23,600 (the AA31WGD1GD1 costs $50,000), and the AA31WGG has no diamonds on it. The major two factors in deciding between these are probably cost and appearance; gold or diamonds?

Sometimes gold can be a very big asset for a timepiece, sometimes it can be its downfall, where does gold fall for the AA31WGD1GD1?

Pros

  • For women that love gold this really shines
  • The water resistant feature makes it practical and pretty
  • The diamonds really work well with the piece

Cons

  • Looks less like a watch and more like a bracelet
  • The clock is really small and may make it hard to see
  • Not many features for the price

Overall, the Bvlgari Assioma D Women’s AA31WGD1GD1 watch has a great appearance. The appearance makes a bold statement, and it’s bound to draw attention to you. However, it looks so much more like a bracelet, and gives no real focus, or consideration to the timepiece aspect of it. Instead of buying this, you’re probably better off buying a gold and diamond bracelet and getting your watch elsewhere. Bvlgari does create a visually pleasing watch, but fails to accentuate the key component of this piece: the time window.

BVLGARI B.zero1 Quartz Women’s Watch BZ30BSL Review

By Erin Brogan

Like the Black House | White Market clothing, this elegant, silver and black classic timepiece will get a second glance from onlookers.  The BVLGARI B.zero1 Quartz Women’s Watch BZ30BSL is simple, yet chic.

Pros:

  • Simple yet elegant
  • Small in diameter
  • Adjustable leather strap
  • Water-resistant
  • Scratch resistant crystal
  • Crown not visible

The face is a solid, sheen black, matching the hatched black leather bracelet. The 7 inch straps are adjustable with a clasp and pin.  Displayed against the black dial are the bold manufacturer’s name (BLVGARI) and below that, the italicized collection (B.zero1).  When you are out with the kids and still trying to feel tasteful, there is no need to cry over spilled milk because this watch is water-resistant up to 30 meters or 99 feet.

In place of diamond hour markers like the BZ30BSL/12, the BVLGARI B.zero1 Quartz Women’s Watch BZ30BSL includes white triangles pointing in towards the center hands marking each hour.  The silver hands shine brightly against the black background and easily read the time.  The crown, or button that turns to change the time, is located in the back of the case to avert the eyes only to its sophisticated appearances. This is all protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire glass. The entire 30mm/1.18cm case is made from a strong stainless steel, polished and ready to sparkle.

Cons:

  • Price
  • Blatant Advertising

Name-brand is the way to go, but BVLGARI takes it just a notch overboard by branding the stainless steel bezel twice with their logo to the point of resembling a coke bottle top.  Now, the traditional look of this watch allows this emblem to fade into the background a little, but the engravings still overpower the classiness.

While the price is on the lower side for BVLGARI watches, it still may reign too much for anyone other than the reserved elite.  The cost of this well-designed, Swiss-made wristwatch lists at $2200.00.

BVLGARI has been conducting Italian Magnificence for 125 years.  While at a party to celebrate this marked anniversary, Jessica Elbe can be seen sporting BVLGARI jewelry, as seen in US Town & Country magazine.

Julianne Moore poses for an ad for BVLGARI wearing elegant clothing, the B.zero1 ring collection and a snake-like, vibrant watch.

If these gorgeous, well-to-do women can pull off such a ravishing, designer look, so can you. The BVLGARI B.zero1 Quartz Women’s Watch BZ30BSL is a perfect addition to your wardrobe. It’s versatile, classic nature can be worn on any occasion and is a first-rate cost.

Want to feel like a patriot all year round? The Perrelet Turbine XL America Limited Edition Watch will have you singing “Yankee Doodle Dandy” with joy. Perrelet matches good old American charm with its modern day technology to bring watch collectors a timepiece that will have them seeing stars.

The spoke design of the watch brings to mind the original American flag with its stars set in a circle and is a fun tweak to an American design and even includes thoughtful details, such as the small 1777 etched on the front of the watch, reminding Americans of the year of their independence.

The design of the watch is a delicate balance between the bold American symbols and common-sense durability. The stars of the flag can be found at each index, adding up to a total of fifty stars. The swirling red and white stripes in the background of the dial not only reference the flag, but also invoke the image of an American pinwheel.  A black spinning rotor on the front face of the watch adds to the visual pinwheel effect, mimicking the inner rotor of the watch that keeps the timepiece ticking.

The black case provides a solid backdrop to balance to the bright red, white, and blue of the timepiece, making sure that the watch doesn’t venture into the land of kitsch. The luminous, bright white hands of the watch make the watch easy to read, even with the fun twists on the pattern of the stars and stripes.

With a scratch-resistant stainless steel case and black rubber bracelet strap, this watch is as durable as a revolutionary soldier. The watch features a power reserve of 40 hour, uses automatic movement, and is water-resistant up to 50m (150 ft).  The scratch-resistant, anti-glare treated sapphire crystal of the dial window and automatic movement make this watch practical as well as patriotic.

You’ll want to keep your eye on this grand old timepiece if you want to add it to your collection. A limited edition exclusive from Perrelet, there’s only a short amount of time before this watch will only be seen in museums and history books.

Bold, fun, and patriotic, the Perrelet Turbine XL American Watch is sure to win everyone to its side. Some loyalists may protest that this American classic is made in Switzerland, but the United States is known as a melting pot of culture. Who’s to say our watches shouldn’t be the same?

Romain Jerome Shines with the Moon Invader 40

Romain Jerome symbolizes our achievements with the remarkable Moon Invader 40 watch. Mechanical precision and an inspirational reminder of past moon landings deliver a striking timepiece that calls out for a chance to be appreciated.

The Moon Invader 40 is part of the Romain Jerome Moon Invader Collection which uses authentic lunar elements such as moon dust, fragments of the Apollo XI and fibers from an International Space Station spacesuit. The rounded case is actually made from a union of steel and spare parts from Apollo XI. The four screws and four ball and socket joints that surround the case are reminiscent of the feet of the lunar landing pod. The traditional X pattern on the dial is a lattice array. This design was inspired by the woven metal strands on the tires of the lunar roving vehicles. The beveled case size is 46 millimeters and shows as a pleasantly rounded cushion shape.

The case-back features a grainy moonscape-textured small disk in Moon Silver representing, of course, the moon. Moon Silver is a combination of precious metal with certified and authenticated moon dust. The Moon Silver obtains a unique finish upon contact by the owner. With all these special features and materials, the Moon Invader 40 watch is sure to summon memories and the glory of the lunar mission.

The aesthetics of the dial are unique and create a grid work pattern which is new to the watch industry. The hands and inner bezel rings are coated with superluminova which shows as an exciting blue at night.

The ball and socket joints that represent a lunar landing module are mounted on axles that are moored to the case and hold the lugs of the wrist strap. This allows the strap to adjust to any wrist size. The Moon Invader 40 arrives with four color options: Heavy Metal Auto, Black Metal Auto, TI Auto or Prune.

Romain Jerome was founded in 2004 and has become known for their unique concept of bringing the “DNA of famous legends” into the watch industry. Each of their timepieces pays tribute to an event or special moment of history during the last century such as steel from the Titanic and ash from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano.

The Romain Jerome Moon Invader 40 watch is a fascinating concept that has been captured and brought to life on the wrist. A chance to claim a piece of history may be enough to tempt watch aficionados but the exceptional design and characteristics of the Moon Invader 40 will provide a definite lure.
