At Baselworld 2017 watch fair, Bulgari has unveiled Octo Finissimo Automatic, the slimmest ultra-thin self-winding watch on the market to date. After introducing its Tourbillon in 2014 and the Minute Repeater in 2016, the Maison unveils its new creation featuring a total thickness of just 5.15mm, while its self-winding movement is just 2.23mm thick for a 40mm diameter. The iconic Octo is once again pushing the boundaries of watch making feasibility.
Octo is a paragon of contemporary design that has become one of the pillars of the Bulgari watch collections. This now iconic case confidently flaunts its paradoxical nature that is both very pure and yet very complex, expressed through a strong and daring design. Built in reference to the masterpieces of Italian architecture, its soul and inspiration are entirely attuned to the Roman roots of the Maison. This sophisticated model, showcasing optimal mastery of both shapes and materials, subtly plays with perspective and light effects. Its facets provide shimmering reflections that naturally draw the gaze. Choosing to work with certain materials is also a form of boldness. After gold and steel, the case and dial are now attired in titanium, featuring a sandblasted surface that lends a highly contemporary note to this watch. Prolonging the sensual pleasure procured by the light feel of titanium, the watch comes in a version equipped with an alligator leather strap – in this instance with a matching titanium pin buckle, as well as an extremely beautiful titanium bracelet composed of supple and perfectly articulated links.
