ulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic, for many people, this was THE watch of the last Baselworld. Yes, it marks the 5th world record in thinness for the Octo Finissimo lines. Yes, with an automatic movement with a peripheral rotor just 3.3mm thick, a built-in chronograph and GMT, it is the thinnest that has ever existed –an exploit due to the patiently acquired excellence of its built-in in-house movement (and the contribution of its complication workshops at Le Sentier, formerly Gérald Genta and Daniel Roth).
With an integrated manufactured movement that displays the classic chronograph functions, it also has a GMT function that allows you to set the local time with a push-piece at 9 o’clock. Home time is indicated on the secondary counter at 3 o’clock: it indicates day or night. The chronograph minute counter is set at 6 o’clock, and the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock.
But perhaps that is not the most important thing. This Octo Finissimo Chronographe GMT breaks other records. It sets new standards, not only in terms of its ultra-flatness, but also in the boldness of its design, the novelty of its layered Octo shape, its typographical sobriety, further reinforced by its rigorously uniform exterior: the case, dial and strap are in sandblasted titanium of a deep, silky grey. Bold and unstoppable.
This model sets new standards, not only in terms of extra-flat performance, but also in terms of the boldness of its design, the novelty of its Octo shape, all in distinct levels, its typographic sobriety, further reinforced by its rigorously uniform design.
Serpenti Seduttori is the latest reimagination of Bvlgari’s icon of seduction for women. Making time feel even more precious, the new collection boasts the iconic drop shaped watch head, a motif created for the Serpenti Tubogas watch.
Above all, the new Seduttori is thinner than ever. Equipped with a new flexible strap inspired by the original Serpenti watch, it is crowned with cabochon-cut coloured stones that pay tribute to the DNA of the Roman jeweller. The collection is available in pink gold, yellow gold, white gold and diamond paved models.
