From a new shape to the cult watch
Octo now belongs to the exclusive circle of cult watches. Within just a few years, the formal aesthetic of the watch has had a profound and lasting impact in the contemporary men’s watches category. Through its successive innovations, Finissimo and its four world records have redefined horological frontiers. Moreover, Octo line is versatile, including exceptional and unique models such as the Octo Monete. This spectacular one-of-a-kind creation can be worn as a pocket watch equipped with an elegant 18kt gold chain, or as a wristwatch thanks to clever removable attachments. Its cover featuring an ancient Roman coin opens to reveal a skeleton tourbillon movement housed in an 18kt rose gold case set with baguette-cut diamonds.
The likewise one-of-a-kind Octo Grande Sonnerie Perpetual Calendar is equally magnificent in its own way. As its name implies, this watch combines two elaborate and complex complications: the Grande Sonnerie (grand strike) and the Perpetual Calendar. Equipped with four hammers, the movement sounds the hours, quarter-hours and minutes on demand. Bvlgari is currently the brand displaying the fullest mastery of two, three and four-hammer striking mechanisms. The Perpetual Calendar features the full range of calendar indications – day, date, month and year – along with moonphases. This exceptional model is regulated by a Tourbillon.
The Octo Finissimo collection welcomes two new titanium-clad versions. The first of these wristwatches is equipped with the Finissimo self-winding movement and a dial bearing blue hands and hour-markers. The second, Octo Finissimo Skeleton, has the same color theme but with blue hands, small seconds, counters, power reserve, minute scale, and matching alligator leather strap.
