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.
BVL 268 Finissimo tourbillon calibre:
Manufacture, 249 components, ultra-thin flying tourbillon, mounted on a peripherally-driven ultra-thin ball-bearing mechanism …
Manual winding, 52 hours of power reserve, 21’600 A/h (= 3Hz), 13 jewels, diameter of 32.60 mm and thickness of 1.95 mm.
