Bulgari: breaking the mold of watchmaking

For men, the record-breaking Octo Finissimo collection continues to break the mold of Swiss watchmaking with the launch of five new models. Bulgari once again rewrites the rules of contemporary watches with innovative new finishes like sandblast-polished ceramic and satin-polished steel and rose gold, making the Octo Finissimo the icon of the 21st century.

O

cto Finissimo once again channels that rare fusion of edgy Italian design and Swiss engineering with the introduction of two new satin-polished non-monochromatic timepieces: the Octo Finissimo Automatic Satin-Polished Steel and the Octo Finissimo Automatic Satin-Polished Rose Gold. These are both powered by the 2.23mm thick BVL 138 Finissimo caliber and feature a polished black lacquer dial, fitted in the sophisticated Finissimo case. The rose gold edition comes on an alligator strap, perfectly integrated and complemented with a pin buckle.

A rare fusion of edgy Italian design and Swiss engineering.

The Octo saga presents its next chapter with the unveiling of the Octo Finissimo Automatic in Black Sandblast-Polished Ceramic, featuring a new sandblast-polished ceramic case and bracelet and sandblasted ceramic dial. A new signature monochromatic look, which alternates matte and brilliant surfaces, thus reflecting light in a way that feels fresh, innovative and new. To achieve the case’s extraordinary thinness in fine ceramic is a difficult feat — and requires the Roman Jeweler’s daring and delicate touch.

With its latest editions, Octo Finissimo paves the road into a thrilling new future for Swiss watchmaking. The latest models in its ongoing Rinascimento are an expression of Bulgari DNA in their daring, exuberance and artistry. In that vein, the Octo Finissimo Automatic in Black Ceramic and the Octo Finissimo Automatic in Steel represent such a nuanced take on classic masculinity that they can be worn by women as well as men — imbuing her style with boldness and a contemporary edge.

A nuanced take on classic masculinity.
