Bulgari has launched its wristwatch, the Octo Finissimo Ultra. It is the thinnest ever timepiece. This ultra-thin watch is only 1.8mm thick.
This fantastic milestone of watchmaking is a dream that came true. It ensures everyone will remember Bulgari as a firm that has penned some of the finest chapters in watchmaking history.
Bulgari has been on the road to becoming the producer of ultra-thin mechanical watches for nearly a decade. Also, this amazing timepiece is the brand’s ninth record-breaking luxury ultra-thin watch. It sets a new record for a thin mechanical watch.
The thickness of the watch is even less than of a €0.10 coin. Moreover, manufacturers designed each of its components to meet the ultra-thin purpose. That as well includes the structure, style, production method, and materials.
Bulgari’s studios toiled for 3 years to construct this one-of-a-kind timepiece. In addition, the company had to place the watch’s numerous components on the case-back.
Bulgari designed several components in a hard, and ultra-resistant mixture of carbon and tungsten, to specifically give rigidity to the construction. The lightweight titanium is the material for a bracelet and has a sanded finish. In fact, the operating frequency of the watch is an astounding 4 Hz.
There are just ten examples available, each costing €400,000. You can find more information on the product here.
