The result is visually stunning: the structure of the watch is all about transparency, enabling crystal-clear views through the whole movement, of which each element is openworked. This mechanism is none other than the Finissimo BVL 128 SK calibre, a Manufacture hand-wound skeleton movement measuring just 2.35mm thick.
In addition to the dedicated central hours and minutes hands, which appear to be suspended in mid-air, the calibre drives small seconds between 7 and 8 o’clock as well as a power-reserve indicator between 9 and 10 o’clock. Set against a backdrop of traditionally decorated watch components, this original movement structure ensures a generous 60-hour power reserve.
Staged inside a 5.37mm thick, 40mm-diameter Diamond Like Carbon (DLC)-treated black titanium case fitted with a black titanium bracelet, the openworked craftsmanship stands out from traditional interpretations by the black coating adorning all the bridges.
Octo Finissimo Skeleton, an opulent men’s watch featuring taut, edgy lines, resembles an objet d’art encapsulating the inimitable Bvlgari vision of elegance. This strong and graphic creation is available exclusively through authorised Bvlgari retailers.
