Since its born in 2012, the BVLGARI Octo wristwatch has quickly emerged from the field of fine watchmaking and has taken its place. In just a few years, this series has become one of the classic works of the 21st century watch industry. The Octo series has a rich and varied models, and all of them inherit the classic qualities of the Bulgari family and represent a contemporary trend. This collection is full of modernity, blending Italian design ideas with Swiss watchmaking. BVLGARI’s Octo series introduces two new pieces, one is the Octo Finissimo skeleton watch while the other is Octo L’Originale chronograph. The two new masterpieces are based on the essence of the Octo collection, all with a dazzling black tone. But today, I only want to introduce the Bvlgari Octo L’Originale chronograph wristwatch. Let’s have a look about it.
Urban Trend Chronograph
Bulgari Octo L’Originale Chronograph watch reveals a modern and dynamic urban trend. Combining sophisticated craftsmanship and powerful versatility, this chronograph is practical in daily life. The watch’s case is designed with an octagonal geometric shape. The eight fold lines are clearly defined, and the highly recognizable case design combines strength and elegance.
This chronograph is powered by the self-made BVL 328 Velocissimo self-winding movement, which is equipped with a column wheel and a silicon escapement to ensure robustness, precision, stability and regularity while significantly reducing the frequency of lubricant application. This chronograph watch reflects the craftsmanship of Swiss craftsmanship, and it is decorated with classic Geneva ripples and has a power reserve of up to 50 hours.
The combination of superb Swiss watchmaking techniques and rich Italian ideas brings stunning visuals. Carrying the advantages of two major areas, this watch redefines the meaning of the chronograph with its beautiful design and powerful performance. The finishing touch of this new work is its unique style rather than the simple functionality. The watch has a diameter of 41 mm and is made of a stainless steel experienced diamond-like carbon (DLC)process. And it matches with a black rubber strap. In addition, the matte black dial features black hands, digital hour markers and hour markers.
The three counters are in a “V-shaped” layout that delivers the beauty of balance, which complements the eclectic geometry and aesthetics of the watch. The minute and hour chronograph dials are located at 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively, while the second chronograph dial is at 9 o’clock. What’s more, the date window is between 4 and 5 o’clock. The Octo L’Originale Chronograph inherits the unique charm and temperament of the Octo series, achieving a balance of strength and elegance, and combining with high recognition and reliable technical strength.
