The Bulgari Endurer Chronosprint. A beautiful piece of art. Image from

It really feels like Christmas.

Ever watch those movies or commercials when someone walks by a store window and has to take a step back to see something they had to admire and stare at?  Usually it’s jewelry for women or toys for kids, but for me it was the Bulgari Endurer Chronosprint.

No images do this watch justice.  It’s hefty, solid and looks like something that would last through 10 lifetimes and a nuclear winter.

According to

This rugged exterior protects an exclusive and unusual self-winding mechanism: a movement with a simplified chronograph function which serves to measure long times, whereas traditional chronographs are generally used to measure short times on two to three counters.  The Chronosprint function indicates the hours and minutes by two hands mounted on a single arbor.  One press on an ergonomically notched push-button at 7.30
positions the hands at 12 o’clock and starts the chronograph.

Calibre DR1306 beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and drives the hour and minute hands on a slightly off-centred axis, while the large date window appears at 12 o’clock.  Its patented mechanism is based on a specific construction due to the off-centred position of the hour and minute functions serving to ensure an optimal position of the Chronosprint function.

So now if it would only show up underneath my tree….
