Continuing its quest for beauty and elegance, Bulgari achieves a new feat with a skeleton-worked new interpretation of its Octo Finissimo Tourbillon, the world’s slimmest tourbillon.
The Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is driven by an ultra-thin, entirely open-worked tourbillon comprising 253 parts, featuring 13 jewels and eight ball bearings serving to reduce the overall thickness of the calibre.
Beating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, the movement delivers a 62-hour power reserve. To ensure perfect efficiency and precision, its barrel spring is equipped with a slipping spring and the tourbillon cage is fitted on a peripherally-driven ultra-thin ball-bearing mechanism.
This exceptional and exclusive movement houses a barrel held by three ball bearings, an innovative feature serving to double the height of the barrel spring and thus achieve an 80% increase in power reserve, an impressive accomplishment for such a slim tourbillon model. To highlight such a movement with the panache it deserves, the case of this new Octo is made of platinum.
