Bvlgari Assioma Womens Watch AAW36D1WL

Bvlgari Assioma Womens Watch AAW36D1WL by Elizabeth Lowry

Diamonds are forever. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Or as Mae West once said, “I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.” It seems as if everyone from Elizabeth Taylor to Dolly Parton has had something to say about diamonds….and we’ve all heard a lot of hype about them, but when it comes to cliches, this Bulgari Assioma women’s watch certainly doesn’t fit the bill. With a sparkling line of diamonds framing a mother-of-pearl dial on the left and right, this timepiece is nothing if not distinctive looking. If you are not too dazzled by the glittering gems, you will see that the bezel on this watch is stamped with the Bulgari logo above and below the dial and includes only no numerals; simply small silver-gold indexes. This timepiece also features a white gold casing and an ardillon buckle. For those not in the know, an ardillon buckle is also referred to as a “thumbnail” buckle—although, when discussing a luxury watch, the French word tends to sound a bit more sophisticated. The truth is that an ardillon or thumbnail buckle is simply a basic buckle that curves in the direction of your wrist as you fasten your watch. An another interesting feature of this watch is the fact that the strap is made of what Bulgari calls “technological satin.” This is basically a synthetic material that looks just like satin but is a lot more durable.

Pros: In my view, the fact that this watch has a quartz movement is a huge plus, as quartz requires little to no maintenance. It is about as reliable as you can get.

Cons: The mother-of-pearl dial may mean that the time is hard to read in bright light, particularly since there is no mention of an anti-reflective treatment on the watch’s crystal. Further, this watch only has a minute and hour hand, meaning that if you like to count seconds, this watch is probably not for you. It is also unlikely that this watch is waterproof, so you will need to remember to remove it before bathing.

This watch seems to be a dress watch, and as such, its manufacturers probably does not expect it to be worn every day. Definitely keep this in mind before you decide whether or not you are prepared to spend the $17,800.

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.

Bvlgari Assioma Mens 18kt Gold Watch AA39C13GLD

Written by Joshua Dhyani

Bvlgari is known for making some very high-end watches and the Bvlgari Assioma Mens Watch AA39C13GLD is no exception. This exquisite timepiece features some of the most luxurious features a watch could possibly have. If you are looking for a high end watch with all the signs of wealth imaginable and included, then this may very well be the watch for you.

Let’s start with the gold. Gold is a symbol of wealth–it has been so for a very long time and will continue to be for a long time to come. So when it comes to making a luxury watch of course gold should be included. Well, this watch has got it. An 18 karat yellow gold case to be exact. And this is classic style here, none of that white gold, but the dazzling and awing yellow gold as it ought to be. Like I said, a classic sign of wealth.

Next, there is the watch strap. Metal links are very cumbersome, anyone who is anyone is going to have a solid strap, and it is going to be animal skin right? Furthermore, it can’t just be leather, no if we’re going luxury, then it should be all the way. That is why the Bvlgari Assioma Mens Watch AA39C13GLD features the very indulgent alligator band, so that the reined gentleman can enjoy the feeling of gator against his wrist. Now that is luxury. Oh, I almost forgot that that three blades folding buckle is 18kt gold is well. Because if you’re going to secure gator to your wrist, you best be using gold.

Now you may be thinking, now this is a luxury watch, it has got the gold, the gator, but something is missing…hold the phone, is that an ivory color dial? Yes. Yes it is. Because nothing says luxury like the color of elephant tusk. Now what more could you possibly ask for from a Bvlgari Assioma Quartz watch? Nothing, thats what.

If we’re going to be fair, we have to look at the negatives as well. First, if you’re not into the animal motif then this is definitely not the watch for you. Also, many people do opt for the stainless steel and white gold look nowadays, but this watch stands in stark contrast to this sensibility. This is not a watch for the quiet and meek however. This watch just screams power, it has all the signs it needs to do so.

So, in conclusion get this watch  if you want a luxury item featuring yellow gold and alligator.

Avoid this watch if you are looking for something quaint and sensible.
