Lot Essay

A one-of-a-kind execution based on a world record, in Tantalum, an extremely rare metal. Bvlgari has twisted the dial design of November in NOW, a nod to Only Watch.

The Octo Finissimo Perpetual Calendar Tantalum for Only Watch features a deep blue dial echoing the colour of the metal. In a nod to the objective of this one-off creation, the graphic design of the month of November recalls the Only Watch abbreviation in a symbolic shade of colour.

At its heart beats a 2.75 mm calibre testifying to the genius of miniaturisation. It drives the hour and minute hands as well as all the perpetual calendar functions: retrograde date display, retrograde day, month and leap-year indication. These are set by means of three correctors: one for the date at 2 o'clock, another for the month at 4 o'clock and a third for the day between 8 and 9 o'clock.
