Bulgari - Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton

| No comment
The Bulgari watch manufacture achieves a new feat with a skeletonised interpretation of its Octo Finissimo Tourbillon, the world’s smallest watch of its kind.

With its 110-facet case, the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton is daring but with a sense of due measure thanks to balanced proportions and its exceptional thinness.


Comprised of 253 parts, the Bulgari BVL 268 Finissimo calibre still holds the world slimness record for a tourbillon movement (1.95 mm) and, adding complexity, it is here completely skeletonised.

Created to compensate for the effects of gravity on the running of a watch, the tourbillon mechanism is a pinnacle of the watchmaking art. Producing the tiny mobile carriage housing the balance-and-spring assembly and the escapement calls for a very high degree of expertise which becomes even rarer when dealing with such slimness.



Powering indications of the hours and minutes, the exceptional movement beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a comfortable 62-hour power reserve.

Another significant development for this watch is how the barrel remains in position guided by three ball bearings around the outer edge.


Straight-grained baseplate and bridges with black Diamond Like Carbon (D.L.C.) coating hold in place the circular satin-brushed gear wheels and the mesmerising flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.



Water-resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet, the 40 mm case is crafted from platinum and enhanced by a platinum crown with ceramic insert. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton has a retail price of Euro 140,000. bulgari.com
