With eight world records since 2014, the Octo Finissimo legion marches forward to consolidate Bulgari’s ultra-thin watch empire. Just a few days after the unveiling of the mind-bogglingly thin Octo Finissimo Ultra, the Roman Maison presents new iterations of some of its Haute Horlogerie complication models, namely the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater and Tourbillon Chronograph Skeleton Automatic, with new colourways and new materials.

Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater Titanium/Blue

Standing out by its refined design and technicality, the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater is the thinnest minute repeater ever with a movement of 3.12mm housed in a 6.61mm case. The model was originally presented in 2016. The new version combines a sandblasted titanium case and a matte blue openworked dial. Just like for previous versions, the hour-markers and small seconds are openworked. These apertures allow Bulgari to further enhance the acoustic properties of the watch.
