Bvlgari Octo Won iF Gold Award in the Product Category

Chosen by a jury of 63 independent experts from the international design community, this prestigious award – bestowed on only 75 of the over 6,000 products taking part in the competition – is a confirmation of Bvlgari’s unique ability to combine Italian design flair with the Swiss watchmaking know-how, ensured by the Bvlgari’s integrated Swiss Manufactures.

The Octo Finissimo Automatic in titanium stems from an approach to design that puts innovation to the fore: innovation in terms of form, materials or typology, resulting into ultra-thin Grandes Complications that are radically different from the rest of the industry.

Innovation is featured in all elements of the watch: its movement, its transparent case-back, its dial and its bracelet, all made of titanium and featured the same sand-blasted finish, which gives the timepiece a monochrome look that complements its design and ultra-thin profile.

The other design challenge i the links that perfectly incorporate the folding clasp, it expresses not only an aesthetic but also ergonomics and a functionality that make Octo Finissimo even more unique when it is worn.

Following the coveted “Men’s Watch Prize” awarded by the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève last November 2017, the latest prestigious award given to Bvlgari illustrates how the iconic Octo Finissimo that has burst out of the confines of the world of luxury watchmaking and is considered an iconic product within the field of international industrial design.
