Such an amazing piece!

Thank you so much!

Congrats! Very nice indeed

Thanks! I tend to agree :).

I'm happy with the fit as well. I could see this as a watch that really needs to fit well to be appreciated.

It was the same for me, and comfy to wear too. ...  

Love your blue dial.

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-21:47
Have to say, it was a tough competition.

Thanks much!

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-21:48
I agree. The dial color is quite lovely, and really plays well with the steel case. It does have a tendency to change a lot of different shades.

Enjoy it and wear it in good health

Congratulations - my favorite dial

on this watch, too, still waiting to se it in the flesh, on my wrist. Cheers Marc

Thank you, Marc.

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-21:48
I would definitely suggest checking it out.

Funny you say that.

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-21:49
This is probably my most cool watch, really enjoying the wearing experience.

Looks perfect

Proportions perfect on your wrist. This piece reminds me of an armour. I think it is going to become the next classic.

For Bvlgari's sake...

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-21:50
I hope it does. I think they did a really, really nice job with this one. I think it deserves an uptick in the attention it is getting.

I'm surprised these are still available!

I went to a Bulgari store in Paris' Place Vendome and they had a hard time keeping this watch in stock. The blue face was sold out! I read a couple days ago that the Bulgari store unfortunately was robbed recently. How sad. The Octo Finissimo watches are ...

What a pity regarding the Bvlgari store. No one wants to deal with a robbery. Given the attention given to integrated bracelet, SS sports watches now-a-days, I am surprised to see that this one kind of slips under the radar.

This looks really good; and Iā€™d not really had much interest in the non Titanium models up to now.

Big fan of the Octo Finissimo. One of my favourite, maybe my favourite, mass market watch of the last several years. Been eager to acquire one since the non complicated reference was launch. Look forward to more pictures of this beauty.

Thanks, Jay!

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-21:51
I look forward to sharing more pictures. It really is a fascinating, fantastic watch.

A brief wear report...

 By: JoshTheCanadian : September 15th, 2021-22:07
Perhaps unsurprisingly, given I am on my first week of ownership, this watch has dominated my wrist. Although I expected this to be the case, it is difficult to shift from it to some of my other watches - the extreme thinness makes it such a joy to wear a... 

Thanks for the update!

 By: Peevee57 : September 26th, 2021-21:27
Is it also scratch magnet? And does it get noticed at all when you wear it?

I have not found it to be a scratch magnet...

 By: JoshTheCanadian : October 13th, 2021-02:14
And it definitely gets noticed - and everything so far has been overwhelmingly positive!

Thank you!

 By: JoshTheCanadian : October 13th, 2021-02:14
My wrist is right at 7". I am fortunate!

Congrats! The same model sung to me the most and it was an easy and excellent decision!

 By: Tifosi99 : October 11th, 2021-00:06
My concern from the internet photos and reviews was legibility. Fortunately, it is very legible (though no lume) in real world situations due to the sharp angled hands. It also is lightweight but not feeling fragile as the Ti models felt to me. This thing...  


 By: JoshTheCanadian : October 13th, 2021-02:15
And I agree with your sentiment. I find it very, very legible

Nice is this the new steel?

 By: rip9er : October 12th, 2021-06:30
Is it thicker than the titanium?


 By: JoshTheCanadian : October 13th, 2021-02:15
Thanks for taking the lead, Tifosi99.

Thanks for clarifying

Brief, unfortunate follow-up

 By: JoshTheCanadian : October 13th, 2021-02:16
Ended up sending this one back for a repair due to a funky seconds hand. Alas, the watch will be out of my hands for another month or two. I am very sad about it!

The second hand stuttered from 35 seconds to 60 seconds

 By: JoshTheCanadian : October 13th, 2021-11:11
It kind of wavers and goes back and forth without a clean sweep. Also, was having some winding efficiency issues. Not sure if related!
