Octo ultra-thin series has gradually become the main model of Bulgari Bulgari with increasing richness, as is also the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series shown by octagonal shape by the hand of watchmaker Gérald Genta. Li’s Octo combines the octagonal philosophy with ultra-thin craftsmanship, and overall it comes from a unique aesthetic. Starting from ultra-thin, 2016 began to fully open ultra-thin hollow titanium with rose gold material. In 2017, titanium metal models were added to show people in dark tones. No matter the price adjustment or appearance is more attractive.
Feature one: Avant-garde shell full of modernity
This time without the rose gold bezel, the new titanium Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton faceplate is rounded off, and only the scale is displayed on the periphery of the faceplate, leaving the complete vision of the BVL 128 movement Precision polished parts. In addition, the power reserve display originally placed on the back of the case is moved to the 9 o’clock position of the faceplate, which is next to the small seconds dial at 7:30. It is equipped with a 65-hour power reserve. Boldly combined with aesthetics.

Feature two: stunning thinness
The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton is equipped with the BVL 128 ultra-thin skeleton hand-wound movement in the ultra-thin caliber lineup of Bvlgari. The thickness is only 2.23mm, and the thickness of the entire watch is perfectly controlled at 5.37mm, plus the titanium metal pole. Light weight makes it almost no weight on the wrist. The 40mm diameter and the lug design to match the wrist radian optimize the overall wearing feel, like a one-piece fit.
Compared to the octagonal philosophical design stacked on the front of the previous watch, it is only 5.37mm from the side. The key among them is the BVL 128 ultra-thin manual winding movement
Feature three: industrial wind hollow movement
The hollow line of the movement substrate is composed of straight lines and circles. It has the feeling of a computer fan and a heat sink. The avant-garde technology created by the watch allows the watch to have a masculine atmosphere even though it is an ultra-thin hollow watch. The processing of the Bvlgari skeleton movement here is very industrial, especially from the side of the back. The base plate of the movement is black-plated to match the color and image of the watch. The radiation pattern emanating from the central time-division axis is like a spider web. The ruby bearing part is additionally thickened. The position of the barrel and power reserve is designed as a mesh. Concentric circles, a bit like the feeling of a computer fan and a heat sink, and a design full of science and technology. Of course, they also echo the masculinity created by Octo, making this ultra-thin hollow watch vaguely with a tough guy image.
The hollow design must take into account the perfect polishing of the movement. Bvlgari presents a unique look
