BULGARI Octo Finissimo Platinum

BULGARI unveils Octo Finissimo, a luxurious ultra thin timepiece made in precious platinum. A new member in the iconic Octo line, the Octo Finissimo beats to the rhythm of extra-thin Finissimo calibre, developed and manufactured in-house. This mechanical hand-wound movement, only 2.23 mm thick, is housed in the Octo case, a contemporary and architectural icon.

With its hour and minute displays and a small seconds hand at 7:30, the Finissimo calibre heralds a new family of Bvlgari movements. It joins the Solotempo calibre, also developed and manufactured in-house, which drives the new Octo 38 mm watch and the iconic BVLGARI BVLGARI.

The very thin hand-wound Finissimo calibre was conceived and designed with the potential for further developments in mind. It is generously sized at 36 mm in diameter and provides a large torque that will accommodate various additional complications in the future, while keeping the gains in thinness. Its high frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour (4 Hz) makes it very accurate.

The Octo line has been one of Bvlgari’s mainstays and one of its strongest symbols since its launch in the summer of 2012. Its distinctive aesthetic, which really is without peer in the watchmaking world, has made Octo one of the most iconic of existing watch models.

Housed in a 40-mm platinum case only 5 mm thick, radiating a serene simplicity enhanced by the perfection of its polished black lacquered dial, Octo Finissimo belongs to the category of classic, elegant watches that display hours and minutes, and adds a small off-centre seconds hand between 7 and 8 o’clock. The movement indicates the status of the power reserve, which is about 70 hours, on the back of the watch.

The Octo Finissimo movement’s finishes are in keeping with this exceptional motor, appearing on the generous surfaces that lend themselves so well to decoration.
