Extremely skeletonized black watch, lightweight as a feather and packed with technology like a Death Star.
In the world of watches, same timepieces often come in different color options, after all we all have our personal preferences. But not all color options are created equal, and sometimes the use of particular colors or materials really help the watch to stand apart and boost their charisma. This is clearly the case of the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic Ref. 103072. As any Octo Finissimo, this watch comes in an undeniably impressive 40 mm extra-thin case measuring 5.5 mm in thickness. However, the pitch-black color of its sandblasted ceramic delivers the extra punch. Working together with full transparency of the overall design, it raises the bar of a hi-tech style to the extreme.
The bracelet is also typical Bvlgari, being super lightweight and almost airy. The latter, however, can drive away some people preferring significant weight on their wrist, but then again, they’ve got enough steel Octos to have fun with. The Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton Ceramic Ref. 103072 is driven by the extremely skeletonized in-house manually-wound BVL 128SK calibre, taking care of the central hours and minutes, as well as the cleverly off-centered small seconds and 65-hour power reserve indication. And while it’s surely not the most legible watch on the planet, the beauty of its showcased dark-colored mechanics and modern finishings create a very strong and distinctive image. And what can be more valuable in the world of haute horlogerie than personality?
