Bulgari is back to break its own record.
While luxury timepieces present themselves as accessories accents, their small-scale designs house intricate mechanisms that power complex functions. The challenge of designing a slim and modern case size to fit a movement seems to be the main focus for the watchmakers at Bulgari. After setting out to create the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, Bulgari released the record-breaking Octo Finissimo Collection with a thickness of only 1.95mm. The luxury timepiece professionals at Bulgari are back to break the record once again with the all-new Octo Finissimo Ultra. The new Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra features a lightweight 40mm titanium case design that measures an astonishing thickness of 1.80mm.
The skeleton-style dial design incorporates a unique QR code that offers the ability to connect to an NFT and the metaverse. The dial also beautifully lays out the multiple functions of the Octo Finissimo Ultra, allowing the perfect view of the mechanisms in motion. The new world’s thinnest mechanical watch is driven by Bulgari’s ultra-thin BVL180 manual-winding movement, which provides an impressive 50-hour power reserve. The backcase includes engravings that signify the milestone achieved by the creative team at Bulgari. Continuing its thin theme, Bulgari fits the Octo Finissimo Ultra with a 1.50mm sandblasted titanium bracelet that adds a comfortable feel for the everyday luxury timepiece. The all-new Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra is currently available through an authorized dealer for $440,000. Check back into duPont REGISTRY Daily for more upcoming luxury watch news and releases.
