Bulgari - Octo L'Originale and Octo L'Originale Chronograph

Bulgari Octo L'Originale and Octo L'Originale Chronograph

Two new models enrich the Octo collection: a three-hand version and a chronograph version. Both are dressed in titanium.

Since 2012, the Octo model has held a place of its own. Its daring design plays with geometry and light. Fully mastered volumes, complex lines and 110 facets achieve the tour de force of embodying both simplicity and a modern vision of elegance. Offered in three-hand or chronograph versions, these two timepieces representing the origins of the line appear in 2018 in a new contemporary exterior in titanium.

Titanium is a technical material greatly prized in watchmaking, as well as in industry as a whole, due to its numerous qualities, including thermal, mechanical and corrosion resistance. Historically, aeronautics and the aerospace industry were the first to use titanium. It goes into the making of most aircraft in the form of forged parts. While military equipment manufacturers see it as an essential component of modern armour-plating, medicine and surgery have leveraged its salutary potential in developing artificial limbs, joints and implants. Lightness is one of its key virtues. Titanium boasts a density 40% lower than that of steel, combined with excellent resistance to mechanical stress, fire and corrosion.  Better still, titanium is biocompatible, as are gold and platinum.

The case and dial of the two reference watches in the Octo line are made from this metal. The three-hand version is equipped with a mechanical self-winding movement, Calibre BVL 191 Solotempo, driving the hours, minutes, seconds and date functions. It has a 42-hour power reserve.
