  • Artist Biography



    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.

Ref. 103077
Making its important debut in 2017, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic marked an important milestone for the firm featuring a timepiece that is mechanically refined to compete with the best of its class. Awarded the men’s watch prize at the GPHG 2017, the Octo Finissimo Automatic, was the first model to feature the firm’s aesthetically pleasing and slim integrated bracelet. Furthermore, it was also the slimmest self-winding timepiece with a micro rotor and small seconds available in the market. The present example, with its contemporary black ceramic finish is perhaps one that expresses the DNA of this new era of Bulgari design in its purist form. Complete with full accessories the watch benefitted from a movement exchange under warranty by the brand in 2021, is found in excellent overall condition and remains under the balance of manufacture’s warranty.
