This latest Octo Chronograph presented by Bvlgari BVLGARI combines the wonderful design of Italy with the perfect craftsmanship of Switzerland. The character of the Octo watch is rooted in its roots. It is the result of the fusion of Italian creativity and Swiss technology. Octo’s most talked about is that it is an architectural masterpiece that pays tribute to Italian creative talents, and it is also a timepiece full of symbols.

The octagon—an ancient figure recognized universally with many symbolic meanings, has an inseparable relationship with human civilization and cultural history. Regardless of the eastern or western continent, the octagon consisting of two basic figures has countless symbolic values and meanings. The concepts of balance, harmony, strength, and eternity are often associated with octagons. In medieval Europe, alchemists believed that the combination of square and circle was a perfect expression, and also symbolized the relationship between heaven and earth: a square represents a person, a circle is the embodiment of God, and the combination of two shapes represents the unity of heaven and earth.
There are many remains of octagonal buildings in Europe and Asia. The octagon has a deep relationship with the history, civilization and beliefs of the Chinese. In later China, squares and circles expressed symbolic meaning according to architectural principles.

Octo’s structure incorporates the octagonal iconic meaning into a watch. It goes beyond the meaning of the watch and not only extends to the chronograph function, but also covers symbolic aesthetic and emotional significance. The rigorous and concise design contains complex images: on one side is excellent clockwork, and on the other side is balance, perfection, and timeless expression.
Combining Italian creativity with Swiss watchmaking technology, blending glamour style and refined design, Octo watches break through the norms of traditional design and create a double meaning interpretation.
The ultimate expression of an urban style watch, Octo is dedicated to those who have a strong personality. This exquisite watch shows a clear personality at first glance. Unique, discernible outlines, coupled with precise technical connotations, fully demonstrate special strength and style. The dial of this Octo Chronograph inherits Octo’s usual style: three small dials are arranged in a V shape, the small second dial is at 2 o’clock, the hour dial is at 6 o’clock, and the minute dial is at 9 o’clock. The time display has a clear layout, so the hand-polished black lacquered dial has a balanced visual effect.

Don’t get me wrong: This seemingly straightforward timepiece actually hides a masterpiece full of power and elegance. Whether in rose gold or stainless steel, Octo’s appearance looks simple, but it includes an octagonal case with a complex design, and the crown design is relatively pure and restrained. The rigorous structure of the case subtly displays the perfect geometric figure, with a total of 110 facets with polished and satin-finished surfaces alternating. The harmonious proportion of the case shows its unique personality that runs counter to traditional watch standards.
The unique construction of the case should naturally be driven by an equally outstanding mechanism: BVL Calibre 328 is an integrated high-frequency (36,000 vibrations per hour) self-winding column-wheel chronograph movement with a 50-hour power reserve . The Octo Chronograph is available in three styles: an 18K rose gold case with an alligator strap; a solid steel case with an alligator strap; and a solid steel case with a stainless steel bracelet. The Octo watch series perfectly reflects BVLGARI’s interpretation of male heroic style, full of charm and personality. Since its introduction in 2012, Octo watches have set a new standard for men’s watches. The latest Octo Chronograph chronographs will continue to occupy the top spot in Yunyun’s outstanding watches, just like the existing models in the series.
