Swiss watchmaking and Italian aesthetics sparkle in this watch. The perfect fusion of the extreme craftsmanship of the two fields creates beautiful and highly effective watches, subverting the spirit of old watchmaking. This model is not only clear and easy to read, but also focuses on fashion style. The DLC diamond-coated stainless steel case with a diameter of 41mm is matched with a black rubber strap. The matte black dial is equipped with black hands, numerals and hour markers. The precision-designed composition and exclusive Italian aesthetic style show a balanced V-shaped configuration of the three chronograph dials, the minute dial at 3 o’clock, the hour dial at 6 o’clock, and the second dial at 9 o’clock. Position and date are displayed in a window between 4 and 5 o’clock. This strong and elegant piece exudes the classic personality unique to the Octo series, is highly recognizable and highlights the Bulgari spirit with superb craftsmanship.
Octo’s classic octagonal aesthetics and balance perfectly complement the delicate art of the fully skeletonized movement, embodying superb craftsmanship
The Octo collection once again showcases its unique taste through the Finissimo Skeleton ultra-thin skeleton watch. The aesthetics and balance of Octo’s classic octagon perfectly match the delicate art of the fully skeletonized movement, embodying exquisite craftsmanship, abandoning excess parts, and translating masculine machinery into delicate carvings. The final visual effect is impressive: the watch structure emphasizes transparency, and through the hollow-out elements inside, the details of the entire movement can be clearly seen. This unique hollow-out design is derived from Finissimo BVL 128 SK movement, which is a Bvlgari-made hand-worked hollow-out hollow movement with a thickness of only 2.35mm.
The small seconds dial between 7 and 8 o’clock on the hollow face dial, and the power reserve indicator between 9 and 10 o’clock
The hour and minute hands in the center show the visual effect of floating in mid-air; in addition, the movement also drives the small second dial between 7 and 8 o’clock, and is arranged between 9 and 10 o’clock Power reserve display. The watch is set on the background of classic decorative style watch parts, with an original movement providing a power reserve of up to 60 hours.
Bvlgari decorates all the bridges with black coating, so that the hollow-out process shows a more modern and contemporary personality
The DLC-type diamond carbon black titanium case with a thickness of 5.37mm and a diameter of 40mm is used to carry the internal movement, with a black titanium metal strap. Decorating all the bridges with black coating allows the hollowed-out process to show a more contemporary and modern personality. The gorgeous OCTO Finissimo Skeleton ultra-thin skeleton watch, with simple, sharp lines, like a masterpiece of art, draws Bulgari’s unique interpretation of elegance.
