Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic

The saga of Octo Finissimo reaches a new pinnacle with its setting of a fifth world record — for the thinnest ever mechanical Chronograph in watchmaking history. The most extraordinary breakthrough is that it is an Automatic with GMT function and a record-setting 3.3mm thinness i.e. the thinnest than the in so far existing flat automatic chronograph movements.

This integrated movement is another demonstration of Bvlgari’s skills in Haute Horlogerie. The Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic represents the fifth element for the collection — in other words, it is the quintessence of Octo, a perfect fusion of design and technology in a remarkably thin body.

Neither round nor square, Octo has created its own codes since it was first released and, with its Finissimo collection, helped launch the industry trend for ultra-thin watches.

Having won a fifth world record, Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic is an emblem of Bvlgari expertise. With a manufactured integrated movement that displays the classical chronograph functions, it also has a GMT function that allows one to set the local time with a button at 9h.

The home time is indicated on the subcounter at 3h: graduated on 24 hours, it indicates day or night. The chronograph minutes counter is positioned at 6h, while the small seconds counter is at 9h. This exquisite creation rewinds automatically thanks to its peripheral mass.
