Octo Roma: an elegant, modern and urban timepiece, bordering on absolute purity of the octagon shape, while respecting the formal fundamentals of the Octo original collection.
Simplicity is a complex matter. Pervaded by the inimitably Italian and highly subtle form of elegance that characterises the style of the Maison, the designers have striven to enhance the perfect sense of harmonious proportions enabling them to express the key elements of the Octo watch.
The central feature is of course the octagon, the pure shape ideally balanced on eight sides and a token of life, infinite creation and regeneration. Brimming with cultural and symbolic connotations, this motif is present in the work of the greatest architects and notably Italian ones from the Middle Ages and Renaissance onwards. Its shape combines the circle and the square, two key shapes in watchmaking. BVLGARI thus embeds the measurement of time within a perfectly geometrical framework.
Fired by a love of modernity and contemporary design, BVLGARI adopts a formal approach to watchmaking creativity intended to create beauty and stir emotions by making optimal use of aesthetic efficiency. The new Octo lives up to this promise by focusing on essentials with genuine style: an ideal 41 mm diameter that is both highly contemporary in terms of its presence on the wrist, yet extremely easy to wear with due to its sense of moderation. The iconic Octo case has been subtly reworked so as to ensure an even smoother and more comfortable feel, while maintaining its inherent strength. The strap has been treated to a practical enhancement thanks to a seamless, comfortable 23.5 mm width ensuring ideal flow on the wrist.
Octo Roma is a matter of choice. It becomes the watch of all those who refuse compromises and conformity. Should an elegant, timeless urban watch ideal for everyday wear necessarily be traditional and round? That’s only one way of looking at it. Those who choose the Octo watch prefer to assert their personality and to affirm their preference for a singular, sensual watch model, propelling them firmly towards the future with its powerful design.
