Pushing the boundaries of horological complexity once again, the Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar watch marks Bvlgari’s seventh world record in the field of ultimate thinness. As the slimmest perpetual calendar watch on the market featuring an automatic in-house caliber of just 2.75 mm thick, the timepiece boasts no less than 408 components interacting within the extremely limited space provided by the slender 5.80 mm case. A modern masterpiece influenced by Estetica della Meccanica, or “mechanical aesthetics”, the watch perfectly blends innovation and mechanical mastery with striking and audacious design.

The development of the 2.75 mm calibre required the movement design engineers of the Manufacture in Le Sentier to devise new solutions, such as the use of a micro-rotor and the optimal use of the space between the components without reducing their dimensions. Testifying to true genius in the realm of miniaturization, this development powers the hours and minutes hands along with all the perpetual calendar functions: retrograde-display date, day, month and retrograde-display leap years. They are adjusted by means of three correctors: one for the date at 2 pm, another for the month at 4 pm and a third for the day between 8 and 9 o’clock.
