Wonderful hollow collision extraordinary thin
Since the Bulgari OCTOFinissimo series watch set the world’s thinnest tourbillon watch in 2014, ultra-thin has become an ultimate pursuit of OCTOFinissimo, and it is also constantly refreshing the brand’s watchmaking record.
The skeletonized ultra-thin watch launched this year collided the two difficult techniques of skeletonized and ultra-thin, and put a heavy test on the movement structure, aesthetics and production process. In other words, from the watch case and bracelet Everything from the movement to the movement needs to be thin and light.
Watch real shot
The new OCTO series hollow ultra-thin watch uses a titanium case. One of the major features of titanium is its light weight. Its density is 40% lower than iron. It also has other advantages, such as high melting point, corrosion resistance and resistance. Strong resistance and excellent resistance to mechanical stress. The case is sandblasted and the matt dark tones refine the watch’s extreme masculinity.
The case has a diameter of 40 mm and a total thickness of 5.37 mm. The entire model is light. The octagonal bezel is also an iconic design of Bulgari. The unique octagonal bezel has sharp edges and corners, and after a large number of facet cuts, the shell shape is rich in layering.
The crown of the same material has a non-slip texture design around the crown, which feels first-class and makes it easy to adjust the time.
The dial has a hollow design, and the internal structure is clearly visible, full of unprecedented mechanical sense. The time scale and hands are blue, which is in sharp contrast to the hue of the movement, bringing a strong visual impact and making the time presentation more clear and intuitive.
The 8 o’clock position is the small seconds dial, and the 9 o’clock position is the power reserve display. The dials are arranged in a tight and orderly manner.
The hollow design gives a clear view of the movement structure, and the internal structure of the barrel is clearly displayed on the dial. Every detail of the hollowed out dial has been meticulously crafted to show the beauty of the movement.
The watch is equipped with the Calibre BVL128SK ultra-thin overall hollow-out manual-winding mechanical movement made by Bvlgari, which is only 2.35 mm thick. Hollow-out processing on the thin movement, the hollow-out will greatly reduce the stability of the parts, and it will increase the difficulty. In order for the ultra-thin movement to run lastingly and stably, every component must go through a careful movement and strictly control the accuracy to achieve the final result.
