The watchmaker­s at Bvlgari have acquired a knack for setting records in the past decade or so.

Its Octo Finissimo line has racked up four previous records and this year, the luxury giant adds another gilded feather to its gem-set cap. The Octo Finissimo Chronograp­h GMT Automatic (seen on American artist and model David Alexander Flinn) proudly claims the title of the world’s thinnest automatic chronograp­h at 6.9mm thick. What allows Bvlgari to achieve this feat is the brand-new calibre BVL 318, which measures a mere 3.3mm in thickness. To keep the thickness down, the Italian marque had to eschew the traditiona­l rotor for a peripheral one. Despite building the movement in an innovative way, the brand does not compromise on its performanc­e—the calibre boasts a power reserve of 55 hours and also comes with a GMT function. Aesthetics-wise, like the rest of its sleek brethren, the chronograp­h boasts an octagonal case made of sandblaste­d titanium with a titanium dial and a titanium bracelet to match.
