Watchmaking, in its highest form, is a blend of engineering and artistry. Even though a fantastic timepiece may have a captivating design or an advanced motion, so as to become an actual modern icon a watch has to exhibit both. Perhaps no additional watch line shows this magic mixture of evocative forms and cutting edge horology as well or as frequently as the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo series. Since 2014, the Octo Finissimo line has attained an astounding six world records for its groundbreakingly thin movements, while continuing to evolve an intricate modernist design language which could only come from Bvlgari Replica. This line of consistently record-breaking and evocative design culminates from the astonishing Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton Automatic, showcasing the thinnest tourbillon chronograph movement assembled inside the iconic Octo Finissimo architecture.
The first in the line of record-shattering designs in the Octo Finissimo series came in 2014 with the release of the Bvlgari Replica Finissimo Tourbillon Manual, pioneering the unparalleled manufacture BVL 268 motion. Measuring in at just 1.95mm thick, this became the thinnest hand-wound flying tourbillon movement in the world on its introduction. The Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Manual is more than a radical movement, however, since the angular facets and distinctly Roman flair of this platinum case assist to establish the Octo Finissimo lineup as a contemporary classic among connoisseurs.
