Bulgari Makes Its Mark At Geneva's Watchmaking Awards

Bulgari’s expression of Italian style and superb artisanship has been awarded at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. Two of the maison’s highly fashionable timepieces, the Octo Finissimo Automatic and the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Skeleton, were awarded within the Mens’ Watch category and the Tourbillon & Escapement Prize, respectively.

The former handsome model is the thinnest self-winding watch to date. This year’s updated creation measures just 5.15mm thick and 40mm in diametre, and houses a 2.23mm self-winding movement.

As for the Men’s Watch Award, Octo Finissimo Automatic, which was launched earlier this year at Baselworld 2017, is the third world record-breaking icon successfully presented by Bulgari after the 2014 model Octo Finissimo Tourbillon and 2016 model the Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater.
