As with the 2017 GPHG Men's Watch prize winner, the Octo Finissimo Middle East is a remarkable tandem of style and mechanical refinement.
The multifaceted Bulgari Octo case and full titanium bracelet incorporate a subtle sandblasted matte finish. Bulgari's deployment clasp folds into recesses within the titanium bracelet links in order to fit flush with the bracelet when the clasp is closed. Water resistance is rated at 30 meters
