Is this Bvlgari Assioma women’s watch actually a timepiece in its own right or a golden bracelet that just happens to tell the time? I like the ambiguity of this pink gold creation. There is something appealing about the idea of secretly wearing a watch—of looking as if one has no concern for time, yet being able to keep track of it. This Bvlgari Assioma timepiece could very easily be mistaken for a simple, yet sophisticated piece of jewelry. In essence, it is watch disguised as an 18 karat pink gold bracelet. What’s not to like? It can be worn with an evening gown without looking out of place—and it also could probably be worn for less formal occasions as a means by which to “dress up” an outfit. The black dial on this watch is small and discreet—so discreet that if the bracelet is turned around so that the dial sits on the inside of the wearer’s wrist, one need not know that it is there at all. Further, the bezel on this watch is stamped with the Bvlgari logo above and below the dial and includes only two numerals; an Arabic 12 and 6. The bracelet itself is made of closely set gold links.
Pros: In my view, the fact that this watch has a quartz movement is a huge plus, as quartz requires little to no maintenance. A quartz movement is about as reliable as you can get. I also like the way that this watch presents as a bracelet with the added bonus of a discreet watch-face.
Possible cons: Because the watch face is so discreet and because the indexes are so small, consumers may find it hard to read. But then again, this is not exactly the kind of watch that you would be wearing for time-keeping at the Grand Prix. For some consumers, another con might be that gold is a soft metal, meaning that the bracelet may scratch easily. There is also no mention of water resistance or of the durability of the crystal covering the dial.
Is this watch worth its $17700 price tag? I would say that if you are a bracelet-person who likes pink gold jewelry and attends lots of formal events, this watch could be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Furthermore, if you choose to wear this timepiece only for formal occasions, the reliability of a quartz movement should work in your favor.
This particular Bvlgari Assioma men’s watch has a retro early 1960s era feel to it that is evocative of French New Wave Cinema. In addition to its masculine aspect, this 48 mm automatic timepiece also boasts an attractive anthracite dial. For those not in the know, anthracite is a form of extra-shiny mineral coal. Harder, denser, and more expensive than regular coal, anthracite can be found in charcoal briquettes because it provides a relatively clean burn. Anthracite is a good choice for a watch dial both because of its durability and texture. It also happens to provide an attractive contrast to a black alligator strap. The stainless steel casing on this watch is squarish in shape, which lends to its unique, yet classic appearance. It is easy to picture Jean Paul Belmondo or Jean Seberg wearing the Bvlgari Assioma AA48C14SLD while drinking café au lait in a sidewalk café.
Pros: As stainless steel is so durable, I would consider a stainless steel casing to be a pro. The movement on this watch is mechanical with automatic winding, which means that it doesn’t require too much maintenance in terms of time keeping, but it will probably need to be re-wound every once in a while. Watch connoisseurs may see this feature as a pro, while others will no doubt find re-winding to be tedious.
Possible cons: As far as I am concerned, an alligator strap can often be considered a con. Alligator (as with all leather) is likely to fade unevenly and will grow brittle in hot dry climates. Further, it is not waterproof, which means that you would have to be sure to take it off every time you shower or swim. The watch claims a 42 hour power reserve, which is decent—but other Bulgari models have far larger power reserves of up to 72 hours. Keep in mind also that an automatic movement has its drawbacks as well as its advantages. Although an automatic movement means that a watch’s hands move very smoothly, gliding from one index to the next, consumers find that sometimes the smoothness of that movement detracts from the timepiece’s overall accuracy
At $4000, this is one of Bvlgari’s more reasonably priced watches and it is not available for purchase online, which suggests that it may be one of their less popular models. If you like a watch that’s a little unusual, this one might just be worth the price.

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:
- 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
- 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.

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:
- 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
- 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.

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.
- Water resistant up to 30 meters
- Stainless steel and 18K gold
- High quality
- 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.
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.
