Why We Love it

Bulgari enjoys a unique relationship with the timepiece industry. 

A part of the LVMH group, they are perhaps better known — at least outside watchmaking circles — for their luxurious high jewelry, fashion, and fragrance divisions than they are for their wristwatches. But what watches they do have are really quite something. One need look no further than their award-winning (and completely breathtaking) Octo Finissimo series to prove that they have it where it counts in terms of design chops.

Less well known, but closely related, are timepieces such as this one: A Bulgari Octo Solotempo. These pieces feature much of the primary design cues of the Octo Finissimo, but are executed in a slightly 'thicker,' less complex construction and are offered at a more attainable price point. 

This particular Octo features a 38mm, 'stepped' stainless steel construction with a sapphire crystal, a steel crown with a black ceramic filling, a deep glossy black dial with applied indices and a matching 'sleletonized-obelisk' handset, and a sapphire exhibition caseback.

Powered by Bvlgari's Calibre 193 automatic winding movement, this piece comes fitted to a matching, integrated black alligator leather strap with a signed steel deployant clasp.

The resulting product is at once retro-fantastic and highly avant-garde. You'd have to look pretty far and wide to find a contemporary timepiece with high-end casing materials and functionality for anywhere near this price point — and it probably wouldn't end up looking this cool.

Surely, if you’re the type of person who appreciates a forward-thinking brand — who’s tired of the same old designs being resurfaced ad infinitum — then there are few horological developments more exciting than the Octo line. But don’t take our word for it.

Brand Story

+
Founded by Greek entrepreneur and silversmith Sotirios Voulgaris in Rome in 1884, Bvlgari has since become a luxury powerhouse.
Following its acquisition of the Gérald Genta and Daniel Roth brands from Singapore’s The Hour Glass in the early 2000s, the maison began a process of vertical integration that has allowed it to produce watches on par with the best from historical Swiss firms, the likes of which have stunned the world in the form of the Octo Finissimo collection. Indeed, having broken eight world records for thinness in as many years, the 2020s have proven Bvlgari to be a watchmaker unparalleled in modern history.
In 2011, Bvlgari was purchased by the LVMH Group, ensuring an allocation of resources and limelight that have placed the brand at the center of the watch buying public’s attention. From simple, time-only pieces to some of the world’s most complicated watches — and the world’s thinnest mechanical watch, full stop — Bvlgari’s watchmaking division continues to develop some of the most stunning timepieces in the world, each imbued with a certain Roman charm and sophistication.
