Bulgari Octo Mono-Rétrograde & Octo Bi-Rétrograde
In just three years, the Octo timepiece of Bulgari has established itself as one of the key models of the House.
Since its launch in 2012, Octo has rapidly acquired emblematic status, earning a special place among the surrounding watch creations. A formal sophisticated approach and freshly defined aesthetic codes enable Octo to deploy its aesthetic charms across a broad range and to fully assert its potential, as emphasised by the two new retrograde-display Octo models.
The Octo Mono-Rétrograde and Bi-Rétrograde highlight the unusual and complex case, by combining it with a sparing, uncluttered display with a speedometer-type style naturally evoking the automobile world. This horological complication enables unusual and intuitive time readings and is one of the Octo signature features.
In its Mono-Rétrograde version, the Octo watch provides essential functions: the minutes are indicated by a hand running over a 210-degree segment coupled with jumping hours at 6 o’clock. Simplicity and purity are accentuated by the extremely understated black lacquered dial. The Octo Bi-Rétrograde adopts similar design codes, while featuring a double retrograde display, since this version indicates the date in this mode in addition to the minutes, while the jumping-hour aperture is positioned at 12 o’clock. Both are driven by the proprietary Bulgari BVL Calibre 191 Solotempo movement, complete with an additional in-house developed movement.
The two models come in a choice of pink gold or steel, fitted with an alligator leather strap. The 38 mm-diameter case retains its paradoxical nature: its 110 facets form a complex, highly structured that is unique and truly incomparable, while nonetheless exuding an aura of extreme simplicity.
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 >
