Swiss on the inside, Italian on the outside, the new 40mm titanium cased Bulgari Finissimo Automatic is more than just good looks.
Unveiled at Baselworld 2017 earlier this year, it’s a third world record for Bulgari after the introduction of the thinnest tourbillon in 2014 and minute repeater in 2016.
Encased in titanium, the Octo Finissimo weighs in at approximately 80gms and is all about ‘THIN’ for a reason. Driven by caliber BVL 138, a movement which is only 2.23mm, this is Bulgari’s thinnest engine till date. (Even thinner than Piaget’s 2.3mm 12P micro-rotor movement)
Bulgari has conceived and designed not only the movement, but also the case and dial. To ensure smooth energy regulation, it beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and has a 60-hour power reserve. Automatic winding is accomplished via the platinum micro-rotor, a guarantee of efficiency. The hands and hour markers are coated with black PVD treatment for enhanced legibility against the sandblasted dial.
The movement itself is hand decorated with Côtes de Genève and circular-grained finishing to make it look as impressive on the inside as the outside.
Put the watch on your wrist and it’s like wearing nothing at all, all thanks to the titanium build. Extremely light and extremely comfortable, the Octo Finissimo is offered in an alligator leather strap with a matching titanium pin buckle as well as a beautiful titanium bracelet composed of supple and perfectly articulated links.
