The Bulgari Octo Finissimo line has gotten a ton of applause for its noteworthy rundown of industry firsts including the most slender tourbillon development, the most slender moment repeater development and the most slender programmed development. Furthermore, watch media and watch fans the same have commended the special plan of the Octo Finissimo as quite possibly the most noteworthy new watches out there.
Like many, I additionally love the way that Bulgari had the guts to begin making staggeringly dainty in-house developments to break various industry records and I likewise appreciated the plan of the initial not many watches that were presented utilizing a combination of shapes that characterize the interesting character of the Octo Finissimo.
The Octo Finissimo Design
It wasn’t until Bulgari presented the Octo Finissimo Automatic in 2017 anyway when the watch truly found a spot in my heart and the hearts of many. With the Octo Finissimo Automatic, plan and method were combined in a way where it becomes something really uncommon. It’s this inclination of taking a gander at a watch and closing it looks completely extraordinary and yet it feels normal as though this is actually how it ought to be. The Octo Finissimo Automatic grabs the attention on account of its combination of shapes, straightforward however rich plan of the dial, extraordinarily slight profile and its lovely execution in sandblasted titanium that includes the delightfully planned titanium wristband that makes it genuinely unique. The wristband is rich, so it complements the thin profile close to being modern to complete the complex mechanical look that characterizes the personality of the Octo Finissimo. It’s this novel character that could make the Octo Finissimo a genuine watch exemplary over the long run. That is if Bulgari figures out how to continue to become the Octo Finissimo line without losing that sparkle of magic.
The Octo Finissimo Collection
Thus far Bulgari has been shrewd with acquainting new augmentations with the Octo Finissimo line. The company has decided to either present new mechanical accomplishments or present new materials in accordance with the trademark sandblasted titanium we have come to know for the Octo Finissimo Automatic. The vast majority of the new innovative works of art have likewise been presented in exceptionally unmistakable sandblasted titanium yet the Octo Finissimo has additionally seen Automatic adaptations delivered in sandblasted 18kt rose gold and an excellent form in sandblasted treated steel. What Bulgari has done well is ensure the particular look and feel of the watch, so you in every case in a flash know it’s the Octo Finissimo and not one of different watches in the Octo family.
At Baselworld 2019 Bulgari presented the profoundly commended Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT in titanium. The watch is perceived for being the world’s slimmest mechanical chronograph watch. Clearly, it pulled in a ton of consideration yet in the slipstream, the brand additionally presented the Octo Finissimo Automatic Ceramic and the Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic. Two watches that are another keen advance in finding new materials for the Octo Finissimo. Indeed Bulgari has decided to utilize sandblasting as the style of the watch bringing about a black ceramic Octo Finissimo with a secretive matte black look that must be depicted as very stylish.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Ceramic
The first of the two models is the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Ceramic (ref. 103077) that is another expansion to the Octo Finissimo Automatic reach. As referenced before the Octo Finissimo Automatic has been delivered in titanium, steel and rose gold forms and this ceramic rendition is an incredible expansion in both in materials and shading. The watch is controlled by the natural Bulgari in-house created and record-meager type BLV 138 that is simply 2.23mm thick and noticeable through the straightforward case back. The development is put inside a 40mm breadth case that is just 5.5mm thick and water safe up to 30 meters. Then, to the ceramic case, the crown and dial are likewise made of a similar sandblasted black ceramic to make a spotless matte black by and large look.
The programmed development includes a platinum miniature rotor and has a 60-hour power hold. The watch shows hours and minutes and has a little seconds hand supplanting the 7 and 8 ‘o clock blemishes on the dial. It’s this moderately little component that gives the dial its character. In the event that I had one inquiry – just to see – it would be what the Octo Finissimo would resemble without the little seconds sign? Would it lose its character with ordinary 7 and 8 ‘o clock hour stamps or improves? What’s more, what might occur in the event that you would supplant the 12 and 6 ‘o clock marks with ordinary hour markers. Clearly, the responses to these inquiries will consistently involve assessment. In any case, it is intriguing to see whether these executions would work or in the event that they water down the notorious estimation of the Octo Finissimo Automatic? For the present, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Ceramic is a keen expansion to the Octo Finissimo line-up and with a cost of €15.500 it is an additional decision in a similar value section as the titanium rendition and the steel variant of the Octo Finissimo Automatic.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic
The second ceramic model that was presented is the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic (ref. 103126). Presently I must be straightforward, I’m not the greatest fanatic of skeletonized watches and I’m mindful this is an obtained taste. As far as I might be concerned, as a rule, it makes an uncomfortable conflict between exemplary in general style and super specialized looks of the development. Close to that many pulling off a skeletonized watch and figuring out how to keep the intelligibility great can likewise be a test. I realize that is not really what you purchase a skeletonized watch for. Nothing more needs to be said. I’m a commonsense person. All things considered, it doesn’t imply that there aren’t any mind blowing instances of how wonderful a skeletonized watch can be. Audemars Piguet has figured out how to make some astonishing models in their Royal Oak Concept arrangement and another extraordinary model is the Cartier Santos Skeleton ADLC “Noctambule” that was presented recently at the SIHH 2019. As a rule, skeletonized watches work best when the watches as of now have a more current and modern style to keep away from a conflict in styles. Also, if there should arise an occurrence of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic it takes care of job very well.
The Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic clearly benefits from the general style of the Octo Finissimo. Bulgari has taken a similar 40mm black ceramic case concerning the Automatic Ceramic and put the in-house delivered manual winding BVL 128SK type inside. The 2.35mm thick skeletonized development shows hours, minutes, little seconds and has a force hold pointer for the 65 hours power save. The final product is an exceptionally pleasant skeletonized execution of the Octo Finissimo. What functions admirably is that the development is genuinely simple on the eyes and it gives you the change to peruse the time immediately when fundamental and appreciate the development when you need to. Another explanation Bulgari took a shrewd action with utilizing the black ceramic tone as the reason for the watch is that it makes the correct difference. The matte black tone is the ideal tone to draw out the highlights of the open-worked development. On the off chance that Bulgari would have decided to utilize titanium or steel for this watch, it most likely would have been less significant. The cost of the Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic is € 24.500,00 and for that cash, you get a piece of the rapidly assembling tradition of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo.
Overall Bulgari has delivered two augmentations to the Octo Finissimo line-up that function admirably. I might dare to dream that Bulgari will be however insightful later on as they may be presently with their new acquaintances with the Octo Finissimo reach and it can possibly become a watch symbol over time.
