We’re not talking about brand ambassador Olga Kurylenko at all (...sorry). Bulgari sets a new record at Baselworld: the thinnest minute repeater on the market.

Quote of the day: Bulgari's new standard of thin

At a press conference attended by brand ambassadors Luke Evans and Olga Kurylenko, Chief Executive Jean-Christophe Babin and Managing Director Guido Terreni presented the new Octo Minute Repeater Finissimo, the thinnest on the market:

“This chiming watch sets a new standard within the field of the highly complicated extra-thin creations and follows the Octo Tourbillon Finissimo world record launched in 2014. With the new Minute Repeater, the Maison is laying a new milestone in the field of incomparably slim timepieces”.

The numbers speak for themselves: the new in-house Calibre 362 measures just 3.12mm thick, and the overall case thickness of the watch is only 6.85mm.
