No watch devotee can disregard Bvlgari’s authority of the super meager class . The recipe is straightforward: 5 dazzling watches, 5 world records, 1 incredible plan. Not exclusively is the Octo Finissimo an exhibition of mechanical savoir-faire however it is likewise a deal of current plan. As of not long ago, the “simplest” of the watches in this assortment, the Automatic model, has been accessible in titanium , tempered steel and rose gold , all with a sandblasted finish. Presently, the brand adds a lavish touch with the new Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Satin-Polished Collection.
With these new models in the consistently developing (and continually amazing) Octo Finissimo assortment, don’t anticipate numerous plan or mechanical changes. The fixings are as yet unchanged: a similar precise case; a similar super level extravagance sports watch idea; a similar paper-slim automatic development; and a similar arm band/lash. Though most brands acquaint new dial tones with tidy up an existing model, Bvlgari revives its watches with various finishings looking into it and arm band. Cunning, refined and contemporary.
While the vast majority of the past models in this Bvlgari Octo Finissimo family were monochromatic and matte-completed, the two new models (accessible either in steel with a wristband or 18k rose gold with a tie) play with contrasts. In the first place, there is the differentiation between the matte, marginally grained dark lacquered dial and the exceptionally polished hands and files to coordinate the case material.
Second, there is the increased differentiation of the case with its more exemplary satin-completed and polished zones, which stress the structural plan of these watches with more than 100 aspects. The brushed surfaces all follow the state of the watch and its points, with an outspread brushing on the bezel and vertically brushed casebands. In the middle, the reflecting polished parts add profundity to the design.
Specific to the steel model is the presence of a metallic arm band, which has a similar combination of polished and brushed surfaces. The 18k rose gold rendition is worn on a dark crocodile strap.
Technically talking, this isn’t an advancement of the Octo since it actually has a similar 5.25mm profile for the case and a 40mm width. Nonetheless, there is a curiosity in regards to the water-opposition of the case which would now be able to withstand profundities of 100m gratitude to a screw-down crown: it appears to be that Bvlgari has tuned in to the complaints concerning this particular point. Inside is the super meager 2.23mm automatic, in-house type BVL138 with miniature rotor. Known yet exceptional.
These new releases of the Octo Finissimo Automatic are evaluated at USD 12,000 for the steel model and USD 20,400 for the 18k rose gold model. More subtleties at www.bulgari.com .
