  • Catalogue Essay

    - In just a few short years since its debut in 2017, the Bulgari Octo Finissimo has established itself as a premier luxury sports watch. Its sleek, angular case and extremely thin profile have become icons in the watch world.

    - The Octo Finissimo houses the slim 2.23mm Bulgari caliber BVL 138 automatic movement with a 60-hour power reserve. The case itself is remarkably just 5.15mm thick.

    - In 2022, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Octo Finissimo and its designer Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani, Bulgari released two special "Sketch" editions in a 200-piece limited series. These feature the original concept sketches by Stigliani as the watch dial.

    - One of these is the Octo Finissimo Automatic "Sketch" time-only model, offered here in unworn condition complete with its full set of accessories. With its playful hand-drawn dial, it exemplifies the Octo Finissimo's blend of precision, performance and personality.

  • 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.
