Bulgari Octo Finissimo Rose Gold🥇 Ref.103637 Quick Review
I'm thrilled to share my newest acquisition: the Bulgari Octo Finissimo in rose gold, Ref. 103637. From its inception, the Octo Finissimo has held a special place in my heart, and I'm proud to have one in my collection. The allure of the sandblasted gold ...
Looks great on you. I suspect a retired Gordon Gekko would approve!
The sandblasted rose gold looks amazing, the dial also looks wonderful, all in all a very balanced and very chique sports watch, hope you enjoy it, I sure did from your photos!
Rose gold and this particular brown go so well together, better then gold on gold imo
Congratulations to you for procuring this very special and most exclusive version of the Octo Finissimo! I haven't bought any of the gold models yet (so far all of mine have been steel and titanium) but wow, what a nice watch!
Yes! That 100M water resistance is nice!
I wished the gold ones were even heavier! Especially when compared to the steel version, the gold version is not that much heavier than the steel version since they hollow out the links in the gold bracelet but not in the steel bracelet.
I miss FIRENZE!
You know, there's a hotel in FIRENZE for watch and clock lovers? It's called Hotel L'Orlogio! I didn't stay there, but I will consider staying there in the future!
Yeah... That's so wrong...
The guy obviously can't do math. I saw the first few minutes of the YouTube video. 2000 watches. 1 billion Euros. That means that each watch ON AVERAGE has to be 500,000 Euros. Sorry, but that's just not the case. That's decades years of production AT CUR...
This is a beautiful piece
Ever since I saw this released I've thought this and the skeleton version are my two favorites. Looks fantastic.
That is one beautiful and extremely elegant watch you have there! Sporty and sophisticated. Bvlgari got the colour combination on this one just right. They also did a limited edition yellow gold version for the US market, but, curiously, with the same met...
The sandblasted titanium does hide scratches well!
I've seen some people with the sandblasted titanium watch who are rough on their watches and the watch looks pretty good. Titanium can't really be polished in the traditional way, so if you really do get a big scratch, it's not easily polished away. And t...
Hi Patrick, yes, you're absolutely correct, the sandblasted titanium hides scratches very well. I have a sketch dial OF chronograph and after regular wear, I still can't see a single scuff or swirl on it (hope I didn't now jinx it!). Kind regards kkwn98
Yes! Titanium is actually harder than steel!
Titanium is actually harder and more scratch resistant than steel. The sandblasted finish also hides scratches better than a polished finish would. But if you get big damage, then this is a big problem, as you can't polish titanium easily. Then, after pol...
I’m an OF fan for sure, and maybe to the contrary I loved the sandblasted gold OF even if it would not be something I could see myself wearing. Enjoy this one.
Yay! You've got both movements to compare with!
My new Steel Sejima has the new movement. My titanium version has the old movement. But I will never wear the Sejima outside of formal evenings, so it's unlikely that it'll make a big difference to me.
The Sejima is pretty cool!
But the all polished look just doesn't look right in certain settings. It's too shiny, and almost a generic kind of shiny. Hard to describe. The watch looks terrible outdoors during the day. It looks good indoors at night or outdoors at night. This is a w...
I'll have to try that one day!
I really want that blue dial one... That'd be like a perfect replacement to my Nautilus! But I've already ordered the Chopard Alpine Eagle - so going to give that a try first.
Observation about the gold bracelet
I've noticed for a while now that some of the publicity shots of the gold OFs show the underside of the bracelet to be solid, while it is, in fact, hollowed out. You will see this from the two pictures above. I've always wondered why they do this, as it's...
Hi Patrick, I agree, many brands out there do hollow out gold cases and bracelets. Some are more subtle than others. In Bvlgari's case, I guess there is an argument that they do this for weight and balance reasons, but the thing that annoys me is that cer...
Indeed check the 3D version on the site
some more evidence enclosed 😅 This said I had the chance to handle the watch before buying it and perhaps it was done for weight reasons.. still is a bit strange ...
Thanks for sharing this! This is the first time I've seen this.
On the USA website we don't have the 3D view. But upon closely looking at one of the photos, I do see the links completely filled in! Perhaps the photographs were done off prototypes which weren't reflective actual customer watches that were sold. Either ...
wow good point 🦅eye!
I didn't pay attention but indeed the marketing photo shows the first links without the hollow 😅 This made me now curious and I went to the Bulgari site to check the 360 degrees rendering.. see attached photos.. Pretty interesting no ? ...
It's a mystery why they do this
Hi christianch, Thanks for putting these images up. Yes, they are the ones I saw as well and I think somewhere else as well, although your ones are directly from the Bvlgari website! I have this one too and, like you, I went in eyes wide open, as I examin...
