A watch that when I saw I knew I had to stock, mainly so I could enjoy it personally for a while first! The reverse panda chronograph is always a hit, but this Bulgari really takes it to the next level with a unique design and bracelet, it wears beautifully on the wrist and is a whole load of value for your money! This is the kind of watch if it takes me a while to sell I won't be disappointed, more time for me to enjoy it!
