Bulgari Octo: The Record-Breaking Rebel

Ever wonder why the Bulgari Octo collection is so iconic? Well, simply put, this series is Bulgari’s very own record breaker. Over the past couple of years, the Octo managed to catch the attention of the public, watch enthusiasts, and horology experts when it started bagging awards and breaking records left and right.

The first one came two years after its launch in the form of the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Manual. This masterful timepiece housed the iconic BVL 268 caliber, boasting a thickness of only 1.95mm and making it the world’s slimmest flying Tourbillon. The second record was achieved in 2016 with the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater. It came in a titanium case featuring a skeletonized dial with an ultra-thin movement at 3.12mm. This model made use of the BVL 362 caliber which is now known to be the world's thinnest minute repeater

The third and fourth world records happened consecutively with the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic in 2017 and the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Automatic in 2018. The 2017 Octo Finissimo features a BVL 138 automatic movement known to be the world’s thinnest self-winding watch with a depth of only 5.15mm. Shortly after, the 2018 Octo Finissimo Tourbillon was released with a BVL 288 automatic tourbillon caliber and an impressive thickness of only 3.95mm which brought the Octo collection’s world records to four. 

The release of the Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT Automatic in 2019 brought the fifth world record for the collection. The watch ran on a BVL 318 automatic chronograph caliber with a 3.3mm depth, making it the world’s thinnest chronograph movement. Meanwhile, the most recent record achieved occurred in 2020 with the launch of the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Chronograph. This piece featured an ultra-thin skeleton movement, a chronograph, and a Tourbillon with a BVL 388 calibre at 3.50mm. This utterly complex and iconic model is Bulgari’s 6th and latest world record with the Octo collection. 

History Behind the Bulgari Octo Watch 

The Italian luxury brand Bulgari has been in the watch and fine jewelry industry for over a century, but it only launched the award-winning Bulgari Octo collection in 2012. This may seem surprising to many because of how well-established the range has become over the past couple of years, most people would normally assume that it has been in the market for decades now. However, Rome wasn’t built in a day, which obviously applies to this watch as well. 

The Octo was originally created by Gérald Genta before Bulgari bought the said brand. It is a product of years of planning, designing, and perfecting the craft in order to create the ideal watch for men. The concept behind this collection revolves around showcasing true Italian style. The goal was for the watch to be a reflection of the strength and power behind such a distinct culture. It is the type of timepiece that can bring its wearer to a completely different world simply through the aura brought about by its intricate design and superior specifications.  

One of the reasons why the Octo is such a unique model is because of its octagonal shape. This was heavily inspired by the consistency and symmetry that came with anything and everything Roman, specifically inspired by the 310 AD Roman Massentius Basilica. True to its goal, this collection embraces true Italian culture and incorporates those details into each and every timepiece. Aside from its distinct and robust design, what’s behind the physical aspect of the Bulgari Octo series happens to be just as impressive. This range is known to be the best source of unparalleled, intricate watch movements, and they have numerous awards and world records to prove the collection’s competency. 

Reasons to Buy a Bulgari Octo Watch 

1. Iconic Design

Let’s be real here. There are only a handful of watches out there that can easily be recognized with a single glance. Sometimes we have to see the brand logo first before realizing what it is. The Bulgari Octo is so distinct and iconic that the models are recognizable at one glance. Someone can be right next to you or a mile away and they’re bound to recognize your Bulgari Octo watch. This shows how insanely legendary this range is just by its design and structure. 

2. Stylish and Avant-garde

Aside from its unorthodox shape, the Bulgari Octo also boasts progressive, avant-garde designs without being overwhelming. Each piece embodies the concept of Italian style while integrating contemporary design elements. This eventually led to the birth of a masterful selection of bold and powerful timepieces that are loved by many today. 

3. Record Breaking and Award Winning

At this point, most of us already know that the Bulgari Octo is a proud holder of six world records. Bulgari started breaking said records only two years after they launched the Octo collection. This shows how much of a trailblazer Bulgari is especially when it comes to elaborate movements. 

4. Superior Quality

Six world records  are already an indication of the unmatched quality offered in each Bulgari Octo watch. However, if that’s not enough then being home to a variety of complex models all with well-crafted specs and functions should do the trick. 

5. A Good Investment

Owning a record-breaking, well-recognized, luxury watch seems like a great asset overall. However, it really all depends on what your personal definition of a good investment is. In terms of resale value, there are quite a handful of limited edition and rare Bulgari Octo pieces out there that continue to appreciate (in value) everyday. 

Bulgari Octo: A True Italian Watchmaking Heritage 

Despite coming from a brand with numerous iconic models and ranges, the Bulgari Octo stands out for its design and functionality. It is a selection of equally distinct and well-crafted timepieces that reflect the strong, powerful side of Italian watchmaking heritage. Thanks to its awards and world records, the Bulgari Octo will definitely go down in history as a legendary watch collection.
