Happy new owner

Hi all, Happy to share my excitement about this new acquisition.


one thing I am experiencing with the new 1 week into ownership is its microrotor doesnt seem to be that efficient. maybe because of my lack of movement during this WFH period but it never happen to me before that the watch will stop (out of power reserve) when I have it on my wrist for 13 to 15 hours a day, but mainly in sitting position working from home.....

Love to hear from some of you here.

Take care, stay safe, Jeff

Regarding the rotor: I'm in home office now and not experiencing such issues. If this continues, you might want to check with your AD, whether the watch is ok. Mine says hi ...

Yes, micro rotors to me are also very inconsistent with their winding. Some days I see the power reserve build a lot despite mostly sitting in front of my terminal at my desk, and there was one day I was walking all over New York City and the power reserv... 

thank you

We look forward to reading your observations! This is my favorite Bulgari model because it's so thin! I'm especially eager to read your thoughts on the timepiece!

hi all, want to let you guys know, I have had my octo checked by Bvlgari Hong Kong and they confirm the rotor is in good working condition. The "lazy rotor" issue may have to do with the watch had been magnetized. Bvlgari had de magnetized it and it shoul... 

Can't say I've had any problems with mine

That said, I normally sit around for not more than ten or twelve hours a day or so.

Yes, it does not seem to be an effective micro-rotor in my opinion.

I have had the titanium version for about 2 years now and if I do not wind it daily before I wear it, it will stop in less time than the stated capacity. I had it serviced under warranty because the winding stem stopped working (was quoted 3 months and it... 

Hey congrats, I have the same issues, I think the micro rotors

Has less winding effect due to its smaller circumference. I say fully wind your watch by hand and check if it last 60 hours. Then you would know that is not a power reserve issue. That’s what I did. I think for me it took some time for my micro rotor to w...  

Congratulations, you picked a cool version

Regarding the rotor, it is important to really wind the watch very well, after that you should have no problem, even when you are not that active, it should keep its power reserve. This is my experience with my Octo Finissimo and I am home too, every day ... 

thank you all
