From 4th to 14th July 2022, discover the art and innovation behind Bulgari’s record-breaking collection and get up and personal with pieces on exhibition.
Immerse into the audacious and record-breaking world of the Bulgari and witness how the Octo collection has become an icon in contemporary watchmaking at the Octo Finissimo Saga exhibition at Malmaison by The Hour Glass, Singapore.
It has been ten years since the Octo collection made its acclaimed entrance into the world of Haute Horlogerie. Its technical feats, its instantly recognisable shape, and its pure design have raised it to the rank of a watch industry icon. This understated and modern masculine interpretation embodies Bulgari’s two identities: Swiss horological excellence and inimitable Italian style.
In the space of a decade, the Octo collection has become a true icon of contemporary watchmaking, acknowledged both by watchmaking experts and by fans of minimalist design matched by absolute technicality.
Witness the 60 or so international prizes awarded to the collection, including the “Aiguille d’Or” – the Best in Show award – at the latest Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.
This meteoric rise underlines Bulgari’s ability to combine different worlds, as well as revealing the power of blending Swiss watchmaking expertise with Italian elegance. This exclusive union was presented in Rome in July 2012 and rapidly confirmed Bulgari’s role as a pioneering brand through three lines representing as many expressions: Octo L’Originale (2012), Octo Finissimo (2014), and Octo Roma (2017).
Going beyond established rules and pushing limits is in the very nature of the Octo Finissimo line, as proven by the epic saga of world records set by the collection.
Finally, this year, the Octo Finissimo Ultra – at just 1.80 mm thick – sets the eighth record and becomes the thinnest mechanical watch in the world!
