NOTHING LESS

than superlative

Absolutely unmistakable, totally inimitable. Faceted, octagonal, slender. Bvlgari gains its fifth world record with the new Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic. Ultra-flat

by Diego Tamone ts essence is expressed in a single, emblematic word – Finissimo (ultrafine). This superlative, chosen as the name for

this model, is musical and appealing, so is perfect left in the original Italian. Bvlgari, too, expresses its own universal, international language of design, used in recent years to communicate a new kind of thought, a fresh point of view, one capable of revolutionising - and reawakening – the entire watchmaking

industry in a kind of modern renaissance for the sector. Ideological, cultural, technical and functional, its extreme thinness is in itself an eloquent form of expression. Highly sophisticated complications that can only be achieved by a select few, expertise that is now an established part of the brand’s toolbox, embodied by a collection that now finds its latest, most sublime expression in the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic. It’s an instrument designed to measure short periods of time, with dual time zones and a futuristic titanium wristwatch shape and a thickness of just 6.9 mm. A record in its class made possible by an in-house automatic movement with peripheral rotor, itself a record-breaking feature as it is only 3.3 mm high. Entirely mechanical, unconditionally contemporary, radically hi-tech. www.bulgari.com
