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.
