  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Bulgari x The Rake x Revolution “Nuclear Option” Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT was officially announced and released in 2020. The watch is powered by the ultra-thin BVL 318 movement, has a power reserve of 55 hours, and a 43mm black ceramic case, a chronograph function, a 24-hour GMT function, a pusher for advancing local time by one hour, and a tiny seconds subdial.

    - Limited to an edition of 30 pieces, the present Octo Finissimo GMT is in fact the world’s slimmest self-winding watch with a chronograph and GMT function. While the case is very much "Octo Finissimo" in style and construction, the "Nuclear Option" differs from the standard production version due to its overcharged and glowing dial.

    - The present timepiece is offered without reserve and comes with its original Bulgari fitted box, outer packaging, unstamped and undated Guarantee. From Circa 2020, it is preserved in barely worn condition.

  • Artist Biography

    Bulgari

    Italian

    Originally from Kalarites, Greece, Sotirios Voulgaris emigrated to Rome because of Greece's rising poverty and difficulty separating from the Ottoman Empire. He set foot on Italian soil in 1880 with little money in his pocket and spent the next four years preparing what would go on to become Italy's oldest jewelry company. 

    In 1884, Bulgari opened its doors to the Italian people with its offering of jewelry and accessories. Bulgari's style takes from traditions in Greek and Roman craftsmanship to elegantly balance volume and subtlety. Later, in the late 1960s, Bulgari bridged classicism and modernity by introducing its seductive, now-iconic Serpenti collection of snake-shaped coil bracelets and watches. It is through its meticulous combination of influences that Bulgari has garnered an international and loyal high-profile clientele, which included Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. These Hollywood stars have immortalized the house's unique gem-adorned bracelets, necklaces and earrings in rounded forms.
