It takes a special breed of watch to compete with the legendary Royal Oak and Nautilus. Well, the Octo Finissimo is one of the competitors gunning for their throne!Soon after its introduction in 2014, Bulgari’s Octo Finissimo became one the most hotly debated and sought-after watches. In our opinion, it’s one of the most exciting watch releases of the last 20 years!With its sporty chic, ultra sleek look, the Octo Finissimo fits squarely in the luxury sports watch category alongside legends such as the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus. The geometric shape and integrated bracelet are, in fact, design cues taken from these two forebears. Despite its young age, though, the Octo Finissimo, however, is an iconic watch in its own right. When viewed from the front, it exhibits a bold, almost masculine, energy. But turn the watch on its side and a surprisingly sleek and thin profile catches the eye.This reference 103245 is a limited edition from 2021 that melds the architectural qualities of the Octo Finissimo with a dial designed by the legendary Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The 40 mm case is crafted from slate grey titanium, an ultralight material, and features intricate facets and stacked layers of various shapes. Despite its thin profile, measuring just 5.15 mm, the layered design acquires a ton of visual depth.The dial designer, Tadao Ando, is best known for his minimalist style that combines empty space, geometric shapes, the use of concrete as a building material, and intricate light play. The dial features a minimalist spiral motif in black lacquer that emanates from the decentralised second hand, giving the impression of a wave rippling across a pond that provides a wonderful juxtaposition against the stark lines of the case. In keeping with the minimalist design language, the dial is devoid of any further markings and features understated skeletonized hands. The Octo Finissimo Automatic is one of the thinnest automatic watches on the market. The beautifully finished in-house movement with a platinum micro-rotor is visible through a display sapphire case back.The watch was released in 2021 as a limited edition of 200 pieces. It is in like-new condition and comes as a full set with the original box and papers.
