    Bvlgari Diagono Aluminum Question- help

    I just purchased a nice Bvlgari Daigono Aluminum watch and was wondering if anybody knew exactly what movement is used in this watch and whether it's an in-house or based on an ETA or the like.

    In-house or not can easily be determined by the price. The Bvlgari Diagona Aluminium Chrono is a ETA 2824-2 + module. The Bvlgari Diagono Calibro 303 features the in-house movement. Clearly marked on the dial btw.

    The only thing is it doesn't look at all like a 2824 movement. It's got a large center bearing similiar to a 2892A2. I bought this on Ebay but I can't figure out how to post the picture from there. It's a beautifully decorated movement.

    If it is a Dubois Depraz module it should be the DD 2025 - which I think is mounted - your watch will have 51 jewels (25 ETA + 26 module). The Sothis Big Bridge and the Momo Racing Master Extreme use that chrono-module. If a DD 4500 is used (ETA 2892-2 + module) you will have a 49 jewels movement.
    The Bulgari Amplificator got a DD 2027 module added to a ETA 2892 but has no date indication.

    I have the same exact watch it's a ETA 2892-2.

    If it is a three hand watch it is an ETA 2892-2. I was referring to the chrono model.

Size:  1.14 MBAs you can see the movement is very nicely decorated, similiar to my Seamaster. I've not been able to find much info about the movement in this watch. The caseback is held down with 8 screws. Does anybody know where I can get replacement screws or a replacement band?

    Nice movement!
    I can see the incabloc shock protection , but can't see it the balance wheel has the flared spokes or not.
    If it has the flared spokes then it probably is the top version of the 2892.
    Great catch.
    Can you check the balance wheel on it?
    TIA
