Bulgari Octo Retrograde Collection - Octo Mono-Rétrograde and Bi-Rétrograde

Since its launch in 2012, Octo has rapidly acquired emblematic status, earning a special place among the surrounding watch creations. A formal sophisticated approach and freshly defined aesthetic codes enable Octo to deploy its aesthetic charms across a broad range and to fully assert its potential, as emphasised by the two new retrograde-display Octo models.

The Octo Mono-Rétrograde and Bi-Rétrograde highlight the harmonious beauty of the unusual and complex case, by combining it with a sparing, uncluttered display with a speedometer-type style naturally evoking the automobile world. This horological complication enables unusual and intuitive time readings and is one of the Octo signature features.
The two models come in a choice of 18K pink gold or steel, fitted with an alligator leather strap. The 38 mm-diameter case retains its paradoxical nature: its 110 facets form a complex, highly structured that is unique and truly incomparable, while nonetheless exuding an aura of extreme simplicity.

OCTO MONO-RÉTROGRADE
In its Mono-Rétrograde version, the Octo watch provides essential functions: the minutes are indicated by a hand running over a 210-degree segment coupled with jumping hours at 6 o’clock. Simplicity and purity are accentuated by the extremely understated black lacquered dial.

OCTO BI-RÉTROGRADE
The Octo Bi-Rétrograde adopts similar design codes, while featuring a double retrograde display, since this version indicates the date in this mode in addition to the minutes, while the jumping-hour aperture is positioned at 12 o’clock. Both are driven by the proprietary Bulgari BVL Calibre 191 Solotempo movement, complete with an additional in-house developed movement.
