Bulgari debuts the new Octo Solotempo at Baselworld 2016. This time and date timepiece comes in two variations, one with an all black DLC case and another with a 18k gold bezel. Bearing the iconic octagonal shape, the Octo Solotempo is a simple yet good looking timepiece, versatile as a sports watch and as a classic beater.
The Bulgari Octo Solotempo is moderately sized at 41 mm in width and 10.6 mm in height. The watch is cased in diamond like carbon (DLC) treated stainless steel. Its slim size and black colour scheme gives the timepiece a stealthy feel, understated luxury at its best. As its caseback, a see-through sapphire caseback is used.
The watch uses an automatic winding with date movement, Caliber BVL 193 decorated with circular graining, Côtes de Genève, chamfering and snailed finishing. The double barrel movement is equipped with 50 hours power reserve and beats at 28,000 VpH.
The watch is water resistant to 100m and comes fitted with a black rubber strap. The Octo Solotempo is indeed a versatile timepiece which is both classy and sporty at the same time.
