Today we'll be your guide to the Bulgari Octo Finissimo, 40 millimeters in sandblasted titanium, you can see this and the entire 2017 Bulgari collection on our website, govbergwatches.com.
The best way to explore this iconic timepiece with world-record holding ultra thin automatic caliber is to start with ergonomics, where man meets machine. Beginning with the doubled point folding clasp, you can see that it creates a continuous loop to provide insurance against droppage while donning the watch or removing it at beside. When closed, the clasp, which is steel for extra security and strength, features only the subtle cue as to the demarcation, the Bulgari marquee atop the adjacent link.
The links themselves, like the watch, are sandblasted titanium. Ultra thin, beautifully finished and tapered to match the flow of the looks. The top feature tight tolerances and careful finish. The underside, generous channeling between the links to avoid pinching skin or pulling hair. The links of the bracelet flow seamlessly into the lines of the case. The lines inspired by early Etruscan art, Italian architecture, and of course contemporary Italian avant garde design, combine both creases and curves, angles and facets. Complex, it's also iconic, redalent of Bulgari's love and mastery of Italian design conventions as well as the unconventional touches that are the root of innovation.
The record-holding facet of this movement is its thickness. The entire timepiece only 5.15 millimeters thick. The caliber within comprises just 2.23 millimeters of that total. Over 36 millimeters across, it's beautifully broad and all aspects of the movement are visible for easy inspection on the part of the owner.
The micro rotor of the watch, the centerpiece of its automatic winding allows you to have the best of both worlds. Broad, unencumbered case back view of a manual, as well as the convenience of the self-winding automatic watch, and whereas the industry standard is 38 to 42 hours of power reserve, this timepiece boasts an incredible 60, all within the confines of less than 2-1/4 millimeters of thickness.
All aspects of the movement have been finished by hand. From the richly-textured linear Cotes de Geneve across the bridges, to the tight and even engine turning or prolage across the base plate, beneath the platinum winding mass, and the balanced self. There's a gorgeous rounded englage or chamfering at the edge of every bridge, as well as within every screw and jewel countersink. And the balance beating away at a traditional 21,600 vibrations per hour, is anchored on both sides of full-balanced bridge for stability. It also helps to reinforce the structural integrity of the ultra thin movement.
In addition, the watch has extraordinary water resistance for an ultra thin timepiece. 3 ATM (30m) securing the watch against splashes, or washing hands, or inadvertent occasions when one might be caught out in the rain. Conventional ultra thin watches of these dimensions often featuring only humidity and dust resistance.
The dial of the watch features the same refined sophistication as the sandblasted titanium case, matching the tone of the case, it features lacquered indices as well as Arabic numerals and symbolically at center, skeletonized and blackened dauphine style hands.
