The creative force of Italian design BASELWORLD 2016: Bulgari relies on Octo Ultra Nero Finissimo Tourbillon
While black is often said to be slimming, this model is definitely not about optical illusions. More than ever inspired by the creative strength of Italian design and Swiss technical expertise, the legendary Octo combines the world’s thinnest mechanical tourbillon movement with an opulent contemporary black exterior.
The unique, structured case of the Octo Ultranero Finissimo Tourbillon dares to flaunt an unexpected tone-on-tone combination of materials. The matt appearance of the black DLC-treated makes a powerful contrast with the brilliance of the lacquered dial. This total-black look provides a majestic setting for the horological feat represented by the flying tourbillon measuring a mere 1.95 mm thick. Highlighted by pink gold elements, it appears to literally burst out of the dial, a precious touch echoing that of the crown, also made of pink gold.
