  • Catalogue Essay

    Ultra-slim wristwatches has been one of the most popular innovations throughout the history of horology and in recent times, no other has made more than Bulgari’s Octo Finissimo line. Although the stigma from the community has questionable doubts of the brand being a watch genuine watchmaker, the impression has finally been cleared. Initially launched in 2012, the Octo collection marked new beginnings for the brand. With a completely revitalized appeal, the case of the Octo collection is simply Octo, with none other in the market quite like it.

    In 2018, Bulgari launched the Octo Finissimo Skeleton Power Reserve equipped with the ultra-slim cal. BVL 128SK measuring a mere 2.35mm in thickness. Derived from the Jaeger-LeCoultre cal. 849, the BVL 128SK runs at a higher frequency at 28,800 vph with 65 hours of power reserve.

    Launched as a limited edition of 200 pieces worldwide, the present example from circa 2020 is offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories.

  • 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.
