    Mike, I notice the watch says aluminum. Would not lettering on that material have a different appearance than that on SS. Just wondering. Regards

    Maybe, I don't know. The back of the watch shown in my pic is out of the "Aluminium" series.

    Mike, yours has a titanium back-might make a difference. I know aluminum does not engrave well, too soft. Titanium is a whole different ball game and is usually explosive formed and laser engraved. Regards

    Doesn´t AL on the back stands for Aluminium ? Nevertheless Bulgari wouldn´t accept engravings like shown on the first pic.


    Here´s another back with engraving too and it´s better made........

    Fond titane means titatinium back, but I agree the engraving does look pretty crappy. Regards

    You have to be careful with Bvlgari-- there are a LOT of very accurate fakes being made. Fakers target the brand because:
    --even simply made ones sell for high prices
    --they have distinctive, unique styling that convince most buyers, at a glance, that it must be a Bvlgari
    --the lower end (yet still expensive) models use standard off the shelf Swiss movements which make them much easier to fake convincingly than ,for example, a Rolex which has a unique looking (and sounding) movement.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    Just a thought: Aluminium oxidizes easily. The non engraved metal looks a bit "rough". Almost like a rough-casting look. And the screws around the caseback. The slot in them does not correspond to any standard I am aware of, to much "slot" and not enough "non slot", if I make sense to you.

    Assuming we know it is real, how much would it be worth?
