Bulgari - Steely Italian charm

Bulgari Steely Italian charm

Octo Finissimo Automatic.

What else is there to say about the Octo Finissimo Automatic, Bvlgari’s winning gambit since its launch of the very first model in 2017? Back in 2017, the Octo Finissimo Automatic made waves in the industry for two key reasons: the BVL138 Finissimo caliber, which remains to this day one of the world’s thinnest timeonly automatic watches; and its titanium case and integrated bracelet with a sandblasted finish, catapulting the piece into the realm of contemporary icons. Many variations have come since, in different metals and strap options, but one of the latest, the Octo Finissimo Automatic in satin-polished steel and black dial, shows the full breadth of the watch’s versatility. Maybe sandblasted was too radical for you; that’s okay. The satin-polished steel with black dial is more in line with finishes we see across the watchmaking industry, and yet gives the Octo Finissimo a modernized, sports-chic look that will appeal to many clients looking for a steel watch. Across the spectrum of steel sports models, the Octo Finissimo Automatic is one of the thinnest on the market, with an octagonal bezel that is both seductive and representative of edgy Italian engineering.
