Bulgari Discovering the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar
Discovering the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar
For the seventh consecutive year, Bulgari presents a new Octo Finissimo model and a new world record for thinness with a brand-new perpetual calendar. As a reminder, Bulgari has received over 60 awards since 2014 for its Octo Finissimo collection, including the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève that was awarded a prize for its mastery of ultra-thinness in contemporary fine watchmaking. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo is also well-known for its “simple” three-hand automatic wristwatch, as well as for its chronograph, tourbillon, and minute repeater, all of which are the thinnest in the world.
The Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar automatic calibre comprises over 400 components that are assembled in a space that measures only 2.75mm high. When cased, the timepiece also only measures 5.8mm! This mastery of both complications and miniaturization is accompanied by a radical aesthetic that is unique to Bulgari and is highly prized by discerning collectors and fans of strong design. Since 2017, this style of modern elegance has been perfectly embodied in the collection’s full titanium cases, which also steal the show here. However, a second version is also available in platinum, expressing a completely different look and also highlighting the perpetual calendar functions slightly better thanks to better legibility.
Looking ahead to Geneva Watch Days 2021
Managing Director of Bulgari watches, Antoine Pin, explains to WorldTempus the approach behind this piece of fine watchmaking that was unveiled during Watches And Wonders’ 2021 digital edition. In this video made at the brand’s Neuchâtel headquarters, Pin confirms his intention to organize the second edition of Geneva Watch Days at the beginning of September 2021. Like last year, this will be a physical event.
All the brands which followed Bulgari’s (and Bulgari Group CEO Jean-Christophe Babin’s) initiative last summer are predicted to participate again. They were Artya, Bovet, Breitling, Carl F. Bucherer, Czapek, De Bethune, Ferdinand Berthoud, Girard-Perregaux, H. Moser & Cie, Louis Moinet, Maurice Lacroix, MB&F, Reuge, Ulysse Nardin and Urwerk. Pandemic permitting, Geneva Watch Days 2021 is expected to attract even more brands. WorldTempus was the official media partner, along with GMT magazine.
Bulgari has its own clear definition of excellence, which involves the perfect balance between design, added-value, quality of its products and its worldwide service. In the case of Bulgari watches, it all started with the Bulgari Bulgari watch that led to the creation of Bulgari Time in Switzerland in 1982.Find out more >
