And I think I found what I was searching for...

... Octo Finissimo titanium skeleton, what is your opinion?
I like the absence of dial, the blue accents, the blue strap (even if I would gonfor a titanium bracelet), obviously the overall thinnes and the case...

The dial (or better the absence of it) breaks the uniform color of the standard titanium making, at least in pics seems the watch at least 2mm smaller, which is exactly what I was searching for

200 pieces limited edition to be available starting from next September, I hope to be able to see it and feel it and try it next week in Milan

Here it is (credit to someone on IG, but I have to apologize since I don’t remember his/her account)




I’m really curious to hear your thoughts on this
Thanks in advance,
Best
Luca

This watch is about juxtaposition of angles

The concentric octagons of the case both real and virtual plus the criss cross of skeleton on the 'dial' composed of the movement plates. An attractive show piece from Bulgari. Regards, MTF

Dear MTF, I agree with you the overall case of the Octo is attractive exactly for the countless amount of angles matched with the round bezel...

... counting the hours before seeing it live My heart hopes I will love it as in pics, my wallet disagrees a bit, let’s see Best Luca

No diamonds nor unobtainium

Shouldn't be too costly. It's just a titanium case and a simple movement with no complications. No gem setting. Eh? MTF

I love the Octo, but skeleton is simply not my cup of tea.

I didn't remember this one and i'm afraid that 41 mm is too big for my wrist. Because of the shape, 38 mm fits me better. Hope i can try soon more references, i've not abandoned the Roma yet. I truly love integrated bracelet watches, but the strap is perh...  

Ciao Piccolochimico, I was searching for a dark dial...

... because given the thinness of the watch a dial in the same color of the bracelet amplifies its dimensions I’m sure its 40mm, but on my wrist seemed like a huge 43/44mm plate 😀, while I can wear with no problem the new Sea Dweller which is 43mm, for su... 

It is an Industrial Masterpiece....

Bulgari really are making some amazing pieces S

Dear SALMANQ8, I can only confirm your comment,

Especially if I look at the new pieces they presented which are out of my possibilities I think with the Octo Finissimo Bulgari made a sort of a bridge between “traditional” luxury sport watches and some “technical” sport offering of some more visionary i... 

Thanks Redcorals... i agree with you also, it seems I agree with everyone, maybe probably because Purists who don’t like the watch don’t intervene...

... only waiting to know the retail price and most of all the wrist trial... Have a wonderful we Ciao Luca PS: now I need an iPhone XXL, reading back my post there are more typos than correct words, it’s a privilege of not being 20s anymore...

I must admit that in the flesh I was more impressed by the new automatic with blue indexes accents on the dial ( indexes and hands) than the skeleton one

What is your opinion? Both are 200 limited edition and will be released in Semptember... Any advice will be more than pleased Thanks in advance Ciao Luca ...  

i have a skeleton fetish so my preference is clearly for the skeleton version . having that said the auto is a very handsome watch as well and would be a serious contender

i think you answered yourself being more impressed by the auto meaning it left a stronger impression on you and that is the key here follow your heart my friend

Thanks mate for your contribution

I think you are right, if you follow your heart you won’t be disappointed later I will elaborate a bit more and then make the final decision, considering that this year horologically speaking already was and will be an important one (Rolex Daytona Ceramic... 

Pulled the trigger... now it’s only a matter of time, but September is near the corner and on top of it I was born in September...
