A timepiece with character
The Bulgari Octo is an eye-catcher with character thanks to its extraordinary case shape. The original Octo sprang from the genius of the famous watch designer Gérald Genta and is considered to be one of the boldest creations in the history of watchmaking. Once the Gérald Genta brand was acquired by Bulgari in 2000, the Octo began to be listed in the Bulgari watch catalogue. The current Octo collection is just as impressive as its predecessors. In fact, the complication watch Octo Grande Sonnerie Tourbillon has been elected for the Watch of the Year award countless times. The model fascinates with a refined minute repeater, which chimes a tone that matches that of the United Kingdom’s Big Ben. Furthermore, the addition of a tourbillon mechanism demonstrates mastery and bold skill in the watchmaking field.
However, it is also the classic Octo models that impress with bold and inventive designs. The octogonal cases of the timepieces are fitted with a round static bezel, which boldly breaks the classic rules of watch design. The octagon shape is often associated with balance, harmony, and power. It is therefore the perfect shape to incorporate into Bulgari masterpieces.
