The black satin

 By: Jakub M : December 29th, 2020-02:09
I saw plenty of blue dialed satin versions of the new Finissimo here, so thought I would break the trend. I feel like this watch is so worth the pricetag and is punching above its weight class. I guess everyone knows the parameters so I thought I would chip in with something I did not know either, the warranty card is NFC, when you put your phone (provided it has NFC) close to the warranty you will be prompted to visit the a website, on this website is information about your particular watch, serial number, where it was purchased, when it was purchased and remaining warranty (Which for watches purchased after 1st of September can be extended to 5 years!). 

Super cool. This and its variants are the new Royal Oak. GG lives on in his designs.

You’re right, we’ve seen several blue but I don’t recall a black dial. It’s very nice, in fact I think I prefer this dial on the watch.

I’m still drawn to the Ti cases/bracelets, the dullness for me makes them a easier wear on a smaller wrist if that makes sense. 

Wrist shape

 By: Jakub M : December 29th, 2020-04:34
I think it depends a lot on wrist shape as well, I have rather flat wrist and despite it being rather skinny (16.5cm or so) Octo fits well, the lug 2 lug is like modern Submariner, 46mm and there is no limit to first link bending downwards. Both 41mm RO and 3rd gen Overseas felt too big with first links slightly overhanging my wrist as there is limit to them bending downwards, the Octo despite possibly being bigger in terms of area is more wearable for me.

Understand completely. I’d be the same in terms of the 41 RO (sold it for that very reason) and any Overseas, neither can hug the wrist.

The Octo does work on my smaller wrist though. The Ti (and its dullness) to me also makes the watch visually smaller (as I’m sure the ceramic does too).

That dial version is real nice as it feels a bit more stealth to me

I think the black is more "Octo" as it is still sort of monochromatic look similar to the previous sandblasted ones, the blue feels like answer to current "blue sport watch with integrate bracelet" trends

My thoughts exactly. Enjoy yours

Tried the blue one recently

 By: piccolochimico (aka dsgalaxy1) : December 29th, 2020-14:00
And it's too shiny for me.
Waiting to try this one, which might be my second Octo.
I'm not really into all those polished facets, but that's what the market ask for 😅

When you think it is to shiny, try the sandblasted steel or titanium version

 By: Geo : December 30th, 2020-05:40
The shine is not for everyone and the sandblasted finish is cool and very down to earth.
Great series these Octofinissimo's.

Awesome piece, congrats!

I’ve tried the Octo a few times and it doesn’t fit me well, but it looks great here and deserves to be worn often. The satin finish is super nice too. Bravo.

Agree that the black dial SS Octo Finissimo is as attractive (if not more) as the blue dial one. I particularly like the screw down crown of this SS version. Enjoy it in the best of health!

Oh boy... I can't decide... Blue dial or black dial...

 By: patrick_y : January 12th, 2021-19:23
Both dials look so good!  This brushed and polished version looks great!  Such a nice watch!  Very very tempted.
