Good seed makes good crops! Discovering the new Octo Finissimo Skeleton 8 days leaves no room for doubt. The watch indeed bears all the aesthetic characteristics inherent to the Bulgari men’s collection. Its sculptured octagonal chiseled case, with a satin polish finish, is topped with a round bezel. Its dimensions carry us into the exclusive world of extra-flat timepieces, 40mm in diameter and 5.95mm thick. The refined material, pink gold and the dark brown alligator leather of the wristband, closed by a pin buckle, amplifies the Italian elegance dear to the manufacturer. However, some details differ from the previous skeletonized version.
Thus, on an open architecture devoid of any dial, the pair of hour and minute hands appear. This golden duo points to slender markers machined from the same precious material. In contrast, all are highlighted by an openworked structure coated with an anthracite PVD treatment. To say that the legibility of the figures is excellent is an understatement. The taut lines of the bridges and the curves of the wheels create a resolutely modern visual harmony. At 7:30, the shape of a gauge indicator hugs the small seconds hand as it gyrates. Practical yet discreet in order to preserve the elegance of the design, this function indicates the available energy. Under the brand logo, the inscription eightdays conveys an idea of the performance. Thanks to the new BLV 199 SK caliber developed in-house by Bulgari’s watchmakers, the cylinder stores 192 hours of power reserve. A feat for this manual winding movement measuring only 2.50mm high!
