Octo from the locomotive group of the famous Italian brand Bulgari is under the loupe with Octo Finissimo Ultranero Skeleton model added to the collection in 2016.
The Octo Collection, which is perhaps the most impressive product line expressing the innovations the brand made in recent years, is once again the guest of our Hands On corner with the Finissimo Ultranero Skeleton model. The timepiece which is covered by the Ultranero model family draws attention with its ultra-thin construction as well as its skeleton-style dial besides its iconic octagonal case inspired by the decoration used in the ceilings of the Basilica of Maxentius.
The model is offered in a black DLC coated stainless steel case measuring 40mm in diameter. The case features and impressive total thickness of 5.75mm only. Sporting anti-reflective coated sapphire crystals on both sides, the case is accompanied with an 18K pink gold bezel and winding crown elegantly decorated with ceramic. The case is water resistant to 30M.
Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultranero Skeleton houses a skeleton-style dial. The dial truly represents the skeleton-dial concept with a very slight use of scales as chapters for small second and power reserve indicator sub-dials. The hour and minute scale is placed at the outer side of the dial in a form of an inner rehaut.
The model is powered with the brand’s in-house Caliber Ref. BLV128SK. 26 jeweled and hand-wound movement beats at 28800vph and offers an impressive, especially considering its 2.35mm thickness, power reserve of 65 hours when fully wound. Thanks to the skeleton dial and sapphire crystal display caseback, the movement can be enjoyed. Caliber Ref. BLV128SK gives and industrial look with its blackened bridges and circular satin brushed main plate. The power reserve indicator, which is the only extra feature of the model, is on the front side, unlike the other version in the collection.
The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultranero Skeleton comes on a black alligator strap and a standard pin buckle made of titanium with black DLC treatment in line with the case. MSRP of the watch is 26,000 CHF.
The model under the Octo Collection, which represents the renewed face of the brand since its first introduction and became one of the most prominent product groups, especially draws attention with its true skeleton dial and in-house mechanism, which provides and an impressive power reserve of 65 hours.
