Thin is In For Bul­gari, low pro­files are para­mount

Bespoke - - DUBAI WATCH WEEK -

Touted as the world’s thinnest au­to­matic watch when it de­buted last year at Basel­world, the 13,900 USD self-wind­ing Octo Finis­simo Au­to­matic con­tains a move­ment that’s a mere 2.23mm thick. This in­her­ently makes the watch very wear­able and per­fect for slip­ping seam­lessly un­der a tight sleeve, but for Bul­gari it rep­re­sents a third record – after they upped the ante with the slimmest tour­bil­lon and minute re­peater – and helps po­si­tions the brand as a ma­jor force in the horol­ogy world. Sadly for them, Pi­aget upped the ante and re­moved the base­plate from its Alti­plano (set­ting the cal­i­bre on the case in­stead). This means Pi­aget is once again the maker of thinnest au­to­matic watch (but not au­to­matic move­ment).
