Bulgary really got their act together in the past few years.

Five years back, nothing would stop me in front of a Bulgary window. Now what they’re doing with their Octo range is really impressive. Creating a new icon in the sports watch segment.

Last week I had the chance to try on the Octo Skeleton in Ti, my favorite piece of the range. I was thoroughly impressed by the very solid execution of movement and case, the overall design and by how comfortable the watch sat on the wrist.

Wishing Bulgary good success with their strong work. They deserve it.

Cheers,
Daniel

Another 2019 winner for their fifth iteration of the extra-thin automatic Octo Finissimo Collection with a Chronograph-GMT complication. Within the sand-blasted 42mm titanium case of 6.90mm thick is their Calibre BVL 318, exceptionally thinness of 3.30mm....  

That is watchmaking combined with jewellery

Maybe it is worth mentioning that the chunkier chrono has got a Zenith base movement. But I am sure Bulgari fans know this. Thank you for this post!

Definitely must mention ...

Actually they are pretty good with their Grande Sonnerie and repeaters. But they did not entrench in this particular segmentation. Thanks for viewing, Daniel. Kong

Agree fully Daniel.

I was at the boutique in London today and discussed the transition that Bulgari has made from an owner of brands (Roth and Genta) to creator of a completely new approach to ultra slim watchmaking. The Octo range does dominate a bit and according to some i...

A few words come to mind. Edgy. Innovative. Record breaking. A middle finger to the ennui of heavily branded 2-name Swiss watch makers basking in the glory of years past. ...  

Congrats! [nt]
