I look at all my watches in a highly objective fashion, and I think most watches have pros and cons
To be honest, when I bought the Octo Finissimo, I purchased it as something of a placeholder - I was not been able to get a Nautilus/RO allocation, and the Octo Finissimo was intended to fill that hole.
The Octo Finissimo has destroyed my desire to own either of those watches. In fact, I removed my name from consideration for the Nautilus, and I have stopped pursuing the RO.
This watch has faults, no doubt. But the faults that it does have are dramatically outweighed by the pros - and specifically, the fact that this is nothing short of a joy to wear.

That is a huge review of a future icon
Not only the title, i am interested to get the watch on my wrist. With Rome in my mind, this would be a good holiday watch. Sure i wil focus on the updated bvl 138 movement cause of the improvements. Down sides: I need no screw in crown while i have no in...
We should do an Octo Finissimo and Nautilus Comparison!
I can tell you with certainty. If you only have the OF, you don't need the Nautilus nor Royal Oak. And for most people, the Nautilus is easier to wear and more comfortable than the Royal Oak. The OF is just as comfortable as the Nautilus, except for the s...
