Bvlgari – Octo finissimo Collection
Octo Finissimo Collection: Embracing New Materials Two standout creations in the Octo Finissimo Collection were the Octo Finissimo CarbonGold Automatic and the Octo Finissimo CarbonGold Perpetual Calendar. I wrote about the Octo Finissimo novelties during the Geneva Watches and Wonders event.
These timepieces, crafted in anthracite carbon with opulent gold accents exemplify Bvlgari’s commitment to innovation. They smartly utilize the unique properties of materials to envision the future of watchmaking, all within the iconic octagonal frame.
The Octo Finissimo Automatic, with its self-winding movement and record-breaking thinness of just 2.23 mm, exemplifies elegance with its stainless steel finish and a sophisticated blue lacquered dial.
On the other hand, the Octo Finissimo CarbonGold Automatic features a carbon case, ultra-thin mechanical movement, automatic winding, carbon dial, and rose gold elements, making it water-resistant up to 100 meters.
New Serpenti Models during Geneva Watch Days.
Serpenti Misteriosi Collection: A Serpentine Marvel Bvlgari, known for its artistry, went beyond traditional watchmaking with the Serpenti Misteriosi Collection. These watches are true works of art, powered by the piccolissimo micromovement, featuring a diamond-set dial within the serpent’s head, blending heritage, art, and innovation seamlessly.
Monete Catena Dual line.
Monete Catena Dual Time: A Tribute to Tradition The Monete Catena Dual Time wristwatch is a testament to Bvlgari’s ability to bridge the past and present. This timepiece features two coins, yellow gold, rose gold, and diamonds. It pays respect to Bvlgari’s ’60s rectangular watches while also celebrating the Monete jewellery collection.
Beyond Time Book. Collaboration with Assouline.
Beyond Time: Bvlgari’s Horological Odyssey In addition to these exquisite timepieces, Bvlgari unveiled “Beyond Time,” a captivating book that takes enthusiasts on a journey through the brand’s history, artistry, and innovation. This beautifully crafted book explores the world of jewellery watches, Serpenti, Octo, grand complications, Italian design, and Swiss craftsmanship. “Beyond Time” is not just a book; it’s an invitation to dive deep into the heart of Bvlgari’s horological world. Created in collaboration with Assouline the most famous coffee book brand.
During Geneva Watch Days 2023, Bvlgari showcased craftsmanship at its finest, the evolution of the Octo Finissimo series, the artistic brilliance of the Serpenti Misteriosi, and the horological odyssey offered by “Beyond Time.” Bvlgari never stops to amaze with its innovative use of materials, dedication to craftsmanship, and its rich artistic heritage. Whether you’re a man or a woman, Bvlgari offers timepieces that cater to diverse tastes, leaving you inspired and enchanted by the sheer beauty and craftsmanship of their creations.
It was a pleasure to see all the novelties from Bvlgari. However, I was also able to see some of the watches that were launched during the summer. For example Capri Edition (THE BULGARI ALUMINIUM SOLOTEMPO & CHRONOGRAPH CAPRI EDITIONS) and see a few models that I can’t share with you yet…
I am curious which watch is your favourite? Mine is always the Serpenti Line. It just speaks to me. I also truly enjoy the Beyond Time Coffee Table Book. It is becoming my daily ritual to drink coffee and look at the history of this magnificent brand.
