What's better than one Finissimo?

Feb 01, 2021,12:04 PM


Photos have been shot saturday afternoon with some sunset light.
I will make a photo comparison, sooner or later.

I had the Titanium  since last may, during Covid always been on my wrist.

Recently I realized this spring I won't be able to fly anywhere, thus I needed a new toy to keep a smile on my face,job  is day by day more stressful and demanding.

My watch gang told me not to do it, to look for something else, BUT

I know myself.

After years of compulsive buy & sell, back & forth ( and tons of money wasted), now I know (actually I already knew it)  that integrated bracelet watch IS what I love.

Finissimo has surprised me since the first day on my wrist.
I've worn for  years 15202 & siblings and I have no regrets oh having sold it to my bro, several years ago ( I tried to have my family...and I failed), that's for saying that I'm used to thin watch.

Oh, now I have a target.
To reach 8 Octo Finissimo.
I know, it sounds crazy, as well as expensive, but I miss 6 only.

Pardon guys, early enter

So Brauner was rightπŸ˜‚ Thanks for the nice post, these are indeed two stunning watches β€” and thematic collections can be *very* interesting and exclusive in my opinion...

Since you do love this OF line, and with good reason, trying and getting all of them will be a crazy but GREAT project to realize!πŸ˜‰πŸ₯‚

The sandblasted ones are perfect--they look like concrete brutalist architecture, but turn out to be light as a feather

Thank you.

Titanium IS the Finissimo, imho. Light and underrated

Which other six would your collection include?

Eight Octo Finissimos? The world has gone crazy for this watch! I'm still waiting on getting my first one!

I don't know yet.

I am a simple person, a time only is all that I need, but I will give the chrono a chance, though chronos and complicated have usually too much stuff on the dial for me...well, they're complicated for one reason. 2021 has just begun and I hope to take my ... 

I'm thinking my Octo Finissimo collection will have two pieces...

 By: patrick_y : February 1st, 2021-14:01
I like that Tadao Ando Titanium piece. And I'd like to add that piece to my collection. And I really like the steel models too, both the black and the blue dial. I'd probably like to add one of those to my collection eventually as well. I'd also have anot... 

The steel is obviously a bit heavier than the titanium, but it's still light...

And mostly thin, 1 mm more is nothing you can be aware of, unless you measure it.

So far (crossed fingers) none

And I've been wearing ever since I bought it last May

That's a good sign!

Wearing mine since a year

and very often and have no scratches at all. I find the new steel with grey dial very tempting too. George

I have a feeling that sandblasted finish is very resistant.

This is definitely good news for individuals like myself whom are trying to buy a titanium piece!

Octo Octos! Octo to the moon πŸš€ πŸš€ πŸš€ (as they say elsewhere).

What would be next do you think? A different material, or different dial? A complication? The most recent release with the brushed dial looks very nice, but so does the Ando and some others.

I do love titanium

It's warm, compared to the steel. Something with a strap will come in the future, let's see the forthcoming releases

Rubber strap

 By: Jakub M : February 1st, 2021-23:36
I would love for them to make a rubber strap for these, they do have rubber straps for the regular Solotempo versions, not a huge fan of the rubber strap on the new GMT Chronograph with endlink.

Congrats...two fabulous watches...what will be very interesting is seeing how your impressions of the new one are after a few months. Please let us know how it goes! Best E.

I will.

With much better photos

Not at all

The watch is uknown to common people, they do know Bulgari but the watch itself is ignored. Titanium is definitely low profile, steel is more eye catching because of reflections, but still nothing can overtake the Oyster bracelet.

Uh oh! 2-3 means it's addictive! I don't want to be addicted! It seems to be a favorite across the board!

 By: patrick_y : February 4th, 2021-11:50
I will say, a lot of super big collectors, like heavyweight collectors with collections more valuable than a nice house, are often wearing Octos in steel or titanium these days. It seems to be a favorite across the board. From starter collectors to establ...
