Another one below brought brought back to life with WD40 LoL

It's a Sunon China apparently not distributed as spare. You would have to measure "everything" to see if something can replace it. It could be this https://www.cousinsuk.com/search?SearchTerm=PE702M#

I can't believe that a so-called luxury brand is so greedy to chose the cheapest module ever, I think it's just a fake.

I believe it says Swiss Made on the dial so that officially makes it a fake or, at most, a genuiae watch with a swapped out movement.

Not a chance.

I searched, and the genuine item is a Diagono Chronograph, rigorously automatic, which start at about EUR 3,000 on the used market. I must apologize to Bulgari for having called them "so-called luxury", as they aren't that, rather a gloriously gaudy brand that I wouldn't wear unless paid for. And this particular variation, of which you can't find trace in Bulgari official catalogues, is seen only in a dubious website form the modest price of USD 181.

Curiosity time. In papers is written and pronounced Bulgari, so why it's written Bvulgari? Because in the ancient times there was no such thing as the letter U. It didn't come in the alphabet the Romans had imported from Greece. So in the antique inscriptions there a V where you would expect a U. And the brand just tries to capitalize on that feeling of classical Italic times.

Wow, great invormation. Still not sure what to replace it with. EUR 3000 is way too overpriced
