 |  April 14th, 2015

Imagine if you could keep all of your personal information in one place  — around your wrist. And better yet, have it be always accessible and safely stored. In an age where confidential information is becoming harder and harder to keep secure, Bulgari’s new Diagono Magnesium is able to keep your most sensitive material stored with military-level security.

Everyone once in a while we wear a watch that just makes us stop and think about the watchmaking industry as a whole – about history and about legends. This Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph is one such watch. It is an icon in time. It was in the early 1970s – when Swiss watch brands were struggling against Japan’s quartz watch sales – that Audemars Piguet turned to the now-legendary Gerald Genta to design a unique new luxury timepiece in steel. That was the start of the Royal Oak and its hold on time. You can read much more about the Royal Oak’s start here and here. Today, the Royal Oak Chronograph and its sibling, the Royal Oak Offshore…
