Monochromatic, full-black, stealth… What a striking watch! While the exemplary titanium or steel forms of the Octo Finissimo Automatic need next to zero presentation any longer, less may realize that a full black ceramic variant was additionally presented at Baselworld 2019 – all things considered, it wasn’t failed to remember by somebody from the group who proclaimed it as “one of the best watches of the year”. This year, as a component of the oddities introduced by the brand in Dubai, is another rendition, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Black Sandblast-Polished Ceramic.
As with the glossy silk polished steel or gold models we’ve introduced to you as of late, the idea here is to make new livelinesss around the Octo Finissimo Automatic, yet not by playing on shadings (the over and over again seen ‘new dial colour’) however on finishings and materials. The essential idea of the monochromatic look of the first titanium Octo Finissimo is as yet present in this new form, yet a few differentiations have been added by changing the manner in which the surfaces are decorated.
The past – and still accessible – black ceramic rendition of the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic was about matte surfaces, with an altogether sandblasted case. With the enhanced one, these matte surfaces are being consigned to an alternate job, making stand out from the recently gleams and polished surfaces. Thusly, the new Octo Finissimo Automatic Black Sandblast-Polished Ceramic feels much more design then ever, even in its full-black clothing. This treatment has been applied both on the multi-faceted case and on the incorporated arm band – likewise made of ceramic.
The dial of this form is, true to form, completely black as well and made of ceramic, with polished hands and lists to improve readability. The showcase is exemplary to this watch, with focal hours/minutes and a little seconds counter situated at 7 o’clock.
Inside the case, which actually gauges 40mm in breadth and 5.50mm in stature (a smidgen more than the steel or gold models) is the in-house, record-flimsy automatic type BVL138 with platinum miniature rotor and 60h force reserve.
