Bulgari launches two new Octo Finissimo models in 18-carat rose gold with brown dials
The rose gold/chocolate theme is making its way into the Bulgari Collection.
With a market full of luxury timepieces that incorporate every conceivable fit and finish, collectors rely on popular trends to help navigate through the influx of vintage and modern examples. A consistent trend throughout the community is the stunning combination of rose gold with rich dark brown accents. We see it on the Rolex Day-Date 40, the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1R and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, displaying elegant styling on the world’s most sought-after watch models. The watch experts at Bulgari are proud to present the popular configuration of its record-breaking Octo Finissimo collection with two new models with two completely different designs.
The first model to receive its new makeover is the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic, showcasing its ultra-thin 40mm octagonal case in 18k rose gold. Its brown lacquered dial beautifully displays the hours, minutes and small seconds functions of the watch. The Octo Finissimo Automatic is powered by Bulgari’s in-house BVL138 movement, capable of maintaining a 60-hour power reserve while operating at a frequency of 21,600 VpH. Featuring a transparent sapphire case back and matching 18k rose gold bracelet, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic quickly sold for $44,800.
Next on the list for a precious metal overhaul is the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT, featuring a larger 43mm satin-polished case with a more refined geometric design. Beneath its layers of precious metal bezels, a brown and gold chronograph dial design neatly organizes the intricate functions of the world’s thinnest self-winding watch. A sophisticated Bulgari BVL318 movement powers its automatic winding functions, hours, minutes, small seconds, second time zone and chrono. A sapphire crystal case back allows the movement to be seen in action, with commemorative engravings on the outer part to signify special versions. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT comes on a comfortable full-scale brown alligator leather strap, with a price tag of $35,800.
