New release... arghhh

Jan 26, 2021,13:28 PM

I am a fan. Already own one Octo Finissimo but could easily see myself wearing this new release. Opaline dial, titanium case, textured rubber strap. That movement inside. Superb package in my opinion.

Only weakness for me would be the meager 30m WR and I would have loved this in 40 as opposed to 42mm but can respect the movement requires the size... will have to seek one out to see how it feels on the wrist!

A nice one indeed!

Love how they integrated the strap to the case, will probably get one of those rubber for mine! ...  

Very nice one you got!

 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:09
Will the strap fit yours?

Great looking watch

Very exciting

 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:12
Looking forward to trying one on one day!

I've tried on the titanium bracelet version and I didn't find it very comfortable...

I tried on the titanium version for a short time and I didn't find it very comfortable. I suppose a longer test would be necessary to make a real determination since the time I tried it on was very short. I agree, the 40mm version would be nice. But I sti... 

thats it, the zen garden

Just saw this, it's not very zen...

Unfortunately it says it's all sold out of Tadao Andos! ...  


 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:14
That is certainly a cool version... hard to come by for the moment however ... but I agree it is very cool!

Very cool indeed!

 By: patrick_y : January 26th, 2021-23:38
I like your skeleton too Keks! That one is very cool indeed!

Thanks much!!

 By: keks : January 27th, 2021-01:38
I do enjoy it quite a bit!


 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:13
But bracelets can appear differently for different people. My Octo on bracelet is one of the most comfortable I have worn.... but for a sportier purpose I may prefer rubber as it feels like it would tolerate more movement...

Very much smitten

by this one myself, the 30m WR bothering me more than it appears to be bothering you, though. Looking forward to trying this on, an instant hit it seems. Cheers Marc

underwater is The heaven on earth


 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:18
I do not necessarily intend to dive with these kind of watches (even though I throughly enjoy scuba activities). But I do want to be able to go into the pool and shower without being stressed about keeping it on the wrist

No quite

 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:16
30m bothers me quite a bit... on rubber I expect to be able to wear actively without worrying about water... so it is quite a challenge and would be main excuse for me not going for one ...

Call me out all you want!

My "belief" is different from yours and if I err, I'd like to on the side of caution in this matter. Cheers Marc

For me the watch is part of my lifestyle and I want it to be worn in many types of condition.. this makes wr an important factor

I hope not...

 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:18
But the temptation is there!

Very cool!

Great job integrating the pushers into the overall design. It was born to be a chronograph.


 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:18
Superb case design... now if only it was marginally smaller


 By: keks : January 26th, 2021-21:19
Not sure I follow this comment... but perhaps you are right

Before I can decide on which one to get, 3-4 new variations kept coming...

 By: Clueless_Collector : January 26th, 2021-22:07
Grand Seiko has so many special releases, US, Japan, limited editions, dials for 4 seasons, each mountains, bamboos, snow flakes, rain drops etc....that I gave up. I fear the Octo is moving in that direction...or forget Omega Speedmaster too.

Perhaps you have a point

 By: keks : January 27th, 2021-09:23
But I would still argue the releases are justified so far... but yes would not like to see too many iterations in too short of a time span... however I have been on the lookout for a variety of the chrono since I was not in love with the gray dial... now ... 

Good point... There are starting to become too many limited editions, and almost all of them are mere color changes...

 By: patrick_y : January 28th, 2021-23:43
Color changes are very lazy limited editions; a blue one is limited, a green one is limited... I do like the Tadao Ando limited edition in titanium, since the titanium would pass for concrete, it's meaningful as a Tadao Ando limited edition since the arch... 

How about...

 By: keks : January 29th, 2021-09:18
A green ceramic case with a gloss black dial in 40mm time only for ppro then!

Hmm, that would a cool watch!

 By: patrick_y : January 31st, 2021-15:52

Looks good but it’s certainly not a diving watch.

No message body

No diving watch

But a sporty spirit would have hope for more that 30m wr...

The new steel all grey 40mm time only model looks very strong

 By: Geo : January 26th, 2021-23:13
am wearing the 40mm titanium since last January and it is my most worn watch. Love the bracelet without the clasp and with a blind closure. For me, this is another winner for Bvlgari. For those who want to swim with a watch, why not the Casio G-Shock Squa... 

Yes I too love the titanium bracelet on my 40mm!

 By: keks : January 27th, 2021-01:35
For the beach I happily go with one of these ... ...  

It's my daily watch since May 2020

 By: piccolochimico (aka dsgalaxy1) : January 27th, 2021-08:33
Soon I'll get a steel black dial. I could not resist


 By: keks : January 27th, 2021-09:20
Black dial is very compelling addition...hence my attraction to this chrono!

It is indeed difficult to resist...

 By: patrick_y : January 28th, 2021-23:43
I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with a second one too... But first I have to get my first one!

Get both at the same time

 By: keks : January 29th, 2021-09:17
Just suggesting alternative solution

I was thinking I'd try out the first one to make sure I liked it enough to get a second...

 By: patrick_y : January 29th, 2021-10:12
I'm on the wait list for my first Octo Finissimo. Just patiently waiting here.


 By: keks : January 29th, 2021-14:16
That is quite exciting... look forward to seeing which one you went for!

I'm waiting for the Tadao Ando version in titanium.

 By: patrick_y : January 31st, 2021-15:53
Been waiting for over a month already...

Love this watch. I just wish it was 100m WR

 By: Chapstickjunkie81 : January 27th, 2021-08:53
The Oct Finissimo in titanium feels like pure silk on the wrist. Bulgari was the first watch company to take titanium and make it feel very premium. Many other titanium watches look nice but often times feel unsatisfying when wearing.

Yes agree

 By: keks : January 27th, 2021-09:19
It has a great premium feel. Th finishing of the case and bracelet is top class... I am really in awe every time I wear mine !

Dare I say it...

 By: Chapstickjunkie81 : January 27th, 2021-11:11
The chrono in titanium at 100m WR would be a great alternative to the Rolex Daytona. Especially with the tackymeter scale and lume like on the Revolution version. Add the black textile strap. Boy, that would be the dream!


 By: keks : January 27th, 2021-13:47
I think this iteration is good enough had it been 100m wr...

I like it.

Me too
