World record number five
Bulgari introduces the slimmest automatic chronograph
The saga of the Octo Finissimo reaches a new peak with a fifth world record. Bulgari has unveiled the slimmest mechanical chronograph ever built in the history of watchmaking. But that’s not all. The low-rise case contains calibre BVL 318, which is a mere 3.3 millimetres tall, yet offers a GMT function and amasses a 55-hour power reserve. The 42-mm case surrounds a sand-blasted titanium dial and has a transparent back. With a height of just 6.9 millimetres, the case is likewise ultra-slim.
