Watches & Wonders 2021: BVLGARI, BREAKING NEW RECORDS

Bvlgari continues to expand their Octo Finissimo line-up and break new records with a new Perpetual Calendar as well as an exclusive limited edition with an iconic Japanese architect.

Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar

Bvlgari presents Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar, the slimmest in the world. This new record is available in two variations: the “signature” titanium like all Bvlgari’s World Record, and a platinum version.  After exploring ultra-miniaturisation in the fields of automatic movement as well as the minute repeater, chronograph and tourbillon, the Italian House tackles in 2021 the Perpetual Calendar.

Featuring 408 components interacting within the extremely limited space provided by the slim 5.80 mm case of the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar. The development of the 2.75 mm calibre required the movement design engineers of the Manufacture in Le Sentier to devise new solutions, such as the use of a micro-rotor and the optimal use of the space between the components without reducing their dimensions.

Octo Finissimo Tadao Ando

Bvlgari and the Japanese architect Tadao Ando constructed and interpreted time in the most refined way by creating the Octo Finissimo Tadao Ando, a 160-piece limited series. The Tadao Ando limited edition takes a minimalist approach to the theme of time expressed on a deep blue lacquered dial with an essential graphic element, the gold crescent moon positioned at 5 o’clock. The architect’s signature is engraved on the transparent caseback.
