Bulgari unveils a new Octo Finissimo Automatic with a special copper-hued dial as a North American special edition. The new watch is the latest in the collection Octo Finissimo Automatic, that Bulgari first introduced in 2017 as the third model in the series eight finissimo record-breaking ultra-thin watches.
Inspired by the supernatural light present in the paintings of an Italian artist of the 16th century Florentine school, Bulgari has distilled a singular tonality to adorn the dial of this new edition. This unusual and unique color, paradoxically both soft and metallic, is sure to captivate watch enthusiasts and collectors alike.
“Here, the particular metallic salmon tone – it is extremely rare in Bulgari watchmaking and has only been used once before – draws its inspiration not from the usual vintage aesthetic prized by collectors, but from the very roots of Italian art, that of the 16th century, and more precisely from a disruptive movement of the time, called Mannerism, which marked my own training as a designer,” explains of Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani, Product Creation Executive Director at Bulgari Horlogerie.
The new Octo Finissimo Tuscan Copper, is a limited edition of fifty pieces for the North American market, and is powered by Bulgari’s Caliber BVL 138, which boasts a micro-rotor and an impressive 2.23mm thickness measurement. Despite its small size, the watch still retains a water resistance of 100 meters.
The Octo Finissimo Tuscan Copper will be limited to just 50 pieces, priced at $13,300 in the U.S. and $16,700 in Canada.
