Bulgari - Octo Roma: The Octagon Style

Bulgari Octo Roma: The Octagon Style

The Octo Roma opens a new chapter in its legacy, elevating any attire with its impeccable flair

Octo Roma Automatic

The 41mm automatic mechanical version with three hands and date is powered by the in-house Calibre BVL 191 featuring a power reserve of 42 hours. The dial is both easy to read and visually appealing, while its finish adds a touch of sophistication with a Clous de Paris motif. Thanks to this pattern that forms a series of small pyramids, the watch adopts a historical Swiss Haute Horlogerie motif and integrates it within the heart of the Italian-style design. The pattern plays with the light, adding substance and richness to the piece.

The model comes in three dial colour variations enhanced by the 3D effect of the Clous de Paris technique – blue, anthracite and white, providing ample options to choose from depending on personal style and preference. The blue dial embodies a classic and timeless allure, while the white dial commands attention with its bold and unexpected presence. On the other hand, the anthracite dial is ideal for those who seek sophistication and refinement.

The emphasis on the dial is all about legibility: the hands are enhanced with Super-LumiNova® – as indeed are all the hour markers and Octo Roma’s Arabic numerals at 6 and 12 o’clock. Here again, Bulgari has been careful to preserve Octo Roma’s emblematic aesthetic. The right balance and sense of proportion, both essential attributes of Italian architecture remain at the core of Bulgari’s concerns.

Octo Roma Chronograph

The Octo Roma Chronograph, making a noteworthy debut within the collection, is distinguished by a sleek dial, with a clear and legible display in blue or black. It features a chronograph function with a central seconds hand, a 30-minute counter, and a 12-hour counter, which allow to keep track of elapsed time with the greatest precision.

The date window is situated between 4 and 5 o’clock, the three sunburst counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, a layout that facilitates quick and intuitive chronograph readings. The Calibre BVL 399 is a Swiss-made in-house mechanical movement with automatic winding. Highly accurate and reliable, the mechanism operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, winding itself using the motion of the wearer’s wrist. The movement’s precision assembly and intricate decorations are visible through the sapphire case back.

It is in this same spirit that the two pushers on the chronograph version have been particularly carefully integrated into the case, following through directly from the lugs. Form, function, design and ergonomics merge into a coherent and harmonious whole, arranged according to the immutable tenets of Roman architecture. 

This 42mm watch appeals to the aesthete who appreciates a blend of traditional craftsmanship and bold, contemporary design, making it the perfect choice for the discerning individual.
