Pre-Baselworld 2016: Bulgari Octo Ultranero Finissimo Tourbillon

Bulgari Octo Ultranero Finissimo Tourbillon

The matt appearance of the new black DLC-treated cases makes a powerful contrast with the brilliance of the lacquered dial…

 

The 1,95 mm “thick” BVL 268 Finissimo tourbillon calibre of the Bulgari Octo Ultranero Finissimo Tourbillon ranks among the thinnest tourbillon mechanisms on the market, I even believe in the moment it is still the thinnest tourbillon.

While black is often said to be slimming this is a watch that definitively needs no tricks to look thinner or slimmer.

With a diameter of 40.00 mm and a thickness of 5.00 mm the black DLC-treated titanium case perfectly fits on the wrist.

In prior versions the watch was presented in a pink gold and platinum case. The new Octo Ultranero Finissimo Tourbillon therefore is a good looking line extension.

  • This lady looks stunning.

    If you take her tour in Old Bond Street in London, most likely you have to sell house to pay off the credit card.

  • I took the time to look up this watch. It also comes in different colours and versions (tourbillon and non tourbillon). Huge difference in price as well because the non tourbillon costs only 10% of what the tourbillon costs. Which is 110,000 Euro I believe for the tourbillon version. Either way it doesn’t matter for me because I would need to win the lottery to even afford the non tourbillon version
