Bvlgari sets a new world record

ABOVE AND BEYOND THE RECORD

Since its inception in 2014, the Octo Finissimo collection has given life to veritable icons of modern times by pioneering the art of miniaturization, combined with a design approaching purity. The latest achievements of the saga: a ninth world record of extreme slimness and a limited edition with an illustrated dial, revealing the movement’s back in the form of a sketch.

OCTO

By pioneering the art of miniaturization, combined with a design approaching purity, the Octo Finissimo collection has given life to veritable icons of modern times. Over the past decade, the series has set nine records, including the latest achievement: the thinnest mechanical watch ever produced, which is also the world’s slimmest COSC chronometer. Furthermore, a limited edition to celebrate Bvlgari’s 140th anniversary, features an illustrated dial revealing the movement’s back in the form of a sketch.

 

A NINTH WORLD RECORD

With an unbelievable thickness of 1.70 millimeters, the Octo Finissimo Ultra COSC sets a new bar in high-end mechanical watchmaking. An achievement that exemplifies Bvlgari’s daring streak and relentless drive to keep pushing boundaries.

 

SERPENTI

The essence of the seasons captured by the Tadao Ando x Bvlgari Serpenti Limited Edition timepieces. This very first artistic collaboration on the Serpenti Tubogas collection celebrates the fleeting splendour of nature, a theme dear to the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Green aventurine, tiger’s eye, and either white or pink mother of pearl dials express the changing hues of a forest across the seasons.

BEYOND TIME

More than a book, a truly holistic exploration of Bvlgari’s art of timekeeping. Beyond Time celebrates over a century of Roman-inspired savoir faire, exhaustively chronicling the manufacture’s Swiss-Italian watchmaking achievements.

Overall, this year’s Bvlgari releases brought record-setting levels of slimness, high-end tourbillon pieces, and creative editions to help celebrate an anniversary. Finally, the Roma line added sporty black-coated editions. For additional information on the new releases, visit the official Bvlgari website.
