Following in the footsteps of the Tourbillon and the Minute Repeater, this new model once again pushes the boundaries.
Bulgari is once again the spotlight, proudly presenting its third successive world record. The Octo Finissimo Automatic is 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 5.15 mm, while its self-winding movement is just 2.23 mm thick for a 40mm diameter. The iconic Octo is once again pushing the boundaries of watchmaking feasibility.
Finissimo. The very name is a promise and a dream. Extreme thinness is a horological complication in its own right. Merely slimming down or miniaturising existing elements would be far too simple. On the contrary, each element – even the tiniest of them – must be conceived and designed right from the outset so as to contribute to the extreme overall slenderness of this exceptional timepiece. This implies not only the parts of the mechanical self-winding movement, but also the entire set of elements composing the case and dial. So as to guarantee the legibility and the highly contemporary contrast effect, the hands and hour-markers are coated with a black PVD treatment.
