CIAO, BELLO

GQ (Australia) - - WATCH -

On the eighth day, God gave us the ‘Octo Ul­tranero’ – a sheer force of bi­b­li­cal pro­por­tions. Ex­cept, it’s 2017 and Bul­gari is the cre­ator. Con­trary to the as­sump­tion that this eight-sided piece must be named af­ter ei­ther a Ro­man god or Marvel su­per­hero, var­i­ous at­tempts to trans­late it deny any such fact. But don’t let that de­tract from this rugged beauty. The case’s black Di­a­mond Like Car­bon (DLC) treat­ment gives the up­dated watch a new strength and mystery, all very Bul­gari in its bold­ness. And there’s a dex­ter­ity to the stain­less steel ‘Octo Ul­tranero’ be­fit­ting the modern-day gent – it’s as much at home in a fast-paced en­vi­ron­ment as it is sit­ting, proudly and pow­er­fully, in the Ital­ian sun. $9950; bul­gari.com
