The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra is limited to 10 timepieces for the 10th anniversary of the Octo with its 10 o’clock engraving measures just 1.80 mm thick and has eight patent applications pending.
Bulgari has developed a unique experience associated with the heart of the Octo Finissimo Ultra 10th Anniversary – its presentation box (below). It is the first visual and physical contact that owners will have with the world of their Octo Finissimo Ultra, even before seeing and touching their watch.
This offers owners a new experience of setting and winding their watch – two age-old operations that have remained unchanged but which Bulgari has completely reinvented. The watch can still be set by hand, but the presentation box offers a whole new interaction: collectors can place the watch in the box next to a digital screen on which they programme the desired time. A button is then pressed to start the cycle and as soon as the box is closed, the ‘magic happens’ while hidden from sight. Upon opening it some 20 seconds later, the owner will find the watch perfectly set to the desired time and fully wound – silently, delicately and with infinite precision.
The timepiece can still be hand-adjusted by the wearer. It has been designed for contemporary use and has passed all the tests required for urban use: resistance to micro-shocks and to magnetic fields, along with temperature and ageing cycles. This is a symbol of ultimate mechanical mastery that brings watchmaking into a new era: one connecting the mechanical and digital worlds, that of NFT and the blockchain.
