The Octo Finissimo’s extra-thin Finissimo calibre, developed and manufactured in-house, is among the best in this category. This mechanical hand-wound movement, only 2.23 mm thick, is housed in the Octo case, a contemporary and architectural icon. With its hour and minute displays and a small seconds hand at 7:30, the Finissimo calibre provides a large torque that will accommodate various additional complications in the future, while keeping the gains in thinness. Its high frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hour (4 Hz) makes it very accurate.This movement, the product of a greatly expanding capacity for in-house manufacture, is inserted into a case from the Octo line, which has been one of Bvlgari’s mainstays and one of its strongest symbols since its launch in the summer of 2012. Its distinctive aesthetic, which really is without peer in the watchmaking world, has made Octo one of the most iconic of existing watch models. Housed in a 40-mm platinum case only 5 mm thick, radiating a serene simplicity enhanced by the perfection of its polished black lacquered dial, Octo Finissimo belongs to the category of classic, elegant watches that display hours and minutes, and adds a small off-centre seconds hand between 7 and 8 o’clock. The movement indicates the status of the power reserve, which is about 65 hours, on the back of the watch.
