The Parcours of Bvlgari’s Octo Finissimo… From LVMH Watch Week to Watches & Wonders 2021

An icon is the fruit of a creative and technical journey that keeps on uncovering achievements along the way, and that’s exactly the case of Bvlgari’s Octo Finissimo. A cult timepiece in the world of watchmaking, it broke so many records that earned it this noticeable place among watch collectors.

While LVMH Watch Week that took place in Dubai witnessed a new appealing satin-polished Chronograph GMT water resistant to 100m, Watches & Wonders pushed the limits even further with a seventh world record – redefining modern Haute Horlogerie once again, always in Bvlgari’s language.

After exploring ultra-miniaturization in the fields of automatic movement, minute repeater, chronograph and tourbillon, the Roman House introduced the slimmest perpetual calendar in 2 versions: the “signature” titanium like all Bvlgari’s world records and a platinum version.

A 5.80mm case housing a 2.75mm caliber required the development of a new movement that uses the micro-rotor and the optimal space between components without reducing their dimensions. Sublime? Maybe, but what’s for sure is the icon that this timepiece became in the span of no more than 7 years!
