Featuring a deft blend of chic aesthetics and exceptional technical expertise, Bvlgari’s Octo Finissimo watches have set an astounding five world records in watchmaking since debuting in 2014.
In yet another groundbreaking horological feat unveiled at Geneva Watch Days 2020 in August, the maison clinched its sixth watch industry record for the world’s thinnest tourbillon chronograph: the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton Automatic Watch.
The integrated movement features Bvlgari’s record-setting thin chronograph, unveiled last year in the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic. At a remarkable width of just 7.4mm, the case houses the caliber BVL 388 – the ultra-slender 3.5mm openworked single-push chronograph tourbillon movement with a power reserve of 52 hours. Flaunting a two-counter display in matte grey and weighing just 100 grams, the entire case and bracelet of the limited-edition 50-piece model is crafted in sandblasted Grade 5 titanium with a transparent caseback from which the movement can be admired.
