The model that’s emerging as the hero of Bulgari’s watch collection — which is undergoing a serious renaissance at the moment — is the Octo Finissimo Automatic, a simpler, more day-to-day offering than the tourbillons, minute repeaters and the like that also form part of the family. Until earlier this year the Finissimo Automatic was a lonely, single titanium offering. Well, that changed this year when Bulgari gave the award-winning model two handsome siblings, in gold and steel. Now, new metal variants of a popular model is hardly something to write home about, but the execution Bulgari has gone with is both unusual and exciting. Both models have a matt, sandblasted treatment, while this steel version also adds a rhodium coating to the mix, which gives the watch a bright, almost white look. This treatment, combined with the overall style and presence of the Octo Finissimo a presence that needs to be seen to be truly appreciated.
