BVLGARI Bulgari’s history of making ultra-thin watches is not long. In 2014, they began to launch the brand’s first Octo Finissimo ultra-thin tourbillon. At that time, it rewritten the record of the thinnest bracelet tourbillon. After that, the brand successively rewritten the record of the thinnest three questions, the thinnest automatic winding and the thinnest automatic tourbillon in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and the enthusiasm for the research and development of super watches by Bulgari in 2019 remains the same. The new work released is Octo Finissimo’s ultra-thin timing GMT, which has dual complex functions, but the case is less than 7mm, and once again writes the brand’s fifth ultra-thin record.
The Octo Finissimo chronograph GMT self-winding watch is the fifth new ultra-thin watch record created by Bulgari. This time, the brand has expanded its functions to a chronograph and two time displays. The thickness of the case is still only 6.9mm. Disdain for homogeneity
Octo Finissimo’s ultra-thin chronograph GMT uses a titanium case. At the same time, the surface has been sandblasted by the brand in recent years. The special touch and visual experience have spread from the case to the chain. In fact, it is not just ultra-thin. This multi-faceted appearance is already a big challenge in terms of processing. However, Octo is, after all, a Bulgari’s signature work. The technical difficulties have been overcome long ago, but every time I see its characteristic appearance, Still can’t help but wonder a little.
The small dial at three o’clock on the face plate shows the time in two places, and the wearer can quickly adjust it by pressing the knob at nine o’clock.
Minute dial at 6 o’clock, small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, gray face plate echoes inside and outside of the sandblasted titanium metal case
I just saw the dial on my hand will react intuitively. This is a chronograph, including a small seconds dial at nine o’clock and a thirty minute counter at six o’clock, but pay special attention to the small dial at three o’clock. Its 24 The hour scale is not a chronograph, but a relatively rare chronograph with two time display functions. Since the scale itself has 24 hours, it does not need to set an additional day and night display. You can see the numbers directly on the small dial directly. Home time is day or night. In addition to the timing knob on the right side of the case, Bvlgari has also thoughtfully set a quick adjustment knob on the left side of the case-the purpose is to adjust the home time, which is convenient for the wearer to set the time when going abroad.
The thickness of the BVL 318 automatic movement is 3.3mm. As for the overall thickness of the watch, it is only 6.9mm, which successfully continues the Bulgari ultra-thin record.
The watch is equipped with the brand’s newly designed BVL 318 automatic movement. The key to its thinness is still related to the ring-shaped automatic disk. Generally, the automatic three-needle movement can be controlled to a thickness of 3mm is a standard format for thin watches. However, this movement also includes the timekeeping function and the time function of the two places. The thickness of the entire movement is only 3.3mm. The surprising thing is that among the five Bulgari works that broke the ultra-thin record, 3.3mm The thickness is relatively thick. The overall thickness of this movement after it is placed in the case is 6.9mm. Although it is the thickest member of the Bvlgari ultra-thin family, it has a watch with the same level of function in the watch altar. It’s still a flock of birds. To add that, the movement has a power reserve of 55 hours, and it is more than enough with an automatic winding mechanism. It can only be said that the rising star of the ultra-thin world of Bulgari is really expected, and where are their limits? I don’t know.
