Bulgari Octo Finissimo S Chronograph GMT

Reflecting on the Bulgari's more recent history is the Bulgari Octo Finissimo S Chronograph GMT built around the record-slim chronograph concept debuted just a few years ago. This is one of the thinnest and most complex sports watches currently (or indeed ever) made available by the Swiss luxury watch industry. As its name implies, the Octo Finissimo S Chronograph GMT combines a chronograph function (more commonly known as a stopwatch function) with a handy GMT indication that allows the wearer to keep track of a second time zone. This is especially useful in today’s globalised world where one might be working with offices located on distant continents, or just wishes to know what time it is where loved ones reside.

Bulgari’s Italian roots ensure hardly matched elegance in its watch designs: breaking with the rules of traditional watch design, Bulgari watches are bold and unique, yet balanced and beautiful to look at.

All this is combined with a clever self-winding function: whereas self-winding is a common thing on thicker watches, it is a rare feat on so-called ultra-slim timepieces as it requires a great deal of effort to squeeze this hefty and robust mechanism into a slim movement.

The beauty in the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT isn’t just skin deep: its incredibly thin manufacture movement is assembled by hand, ensuring its surface decorations stay perfectly intact.

The BVL318 caliber inside the Bulgari Octo Finissimo S Chronograph GMT measures just 3.30 millimetres thick, a truly outstanding achievement by Bulgari’s Neuchâtel-based manufacture. The case is crafted either from stainless steel or lightweight titanium and measures 43 or 42 millimetres wide and 8.75 or 6.90 millimetres thick between the two metals, respectively.

The wearing comfort offered by ultra-thin watches such as the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT is impossible to be matched by heftier and heavier timepieces.

Whichever version one goes for, the Octo Finissimo will provide a distinctly elegant look and combine it with the excellent wearing comfort that only ultra-thin watches can attain.
